About this show

La Jolla Playhouse presents the West Coast premiere of Obie Award-winner Melissa James Gibson's Suitcase or, those that resemble flies from a distance. In this hip, urban comedy by the author of the Off Broadway hit [sic], Jen (Colleen Werthmann) and Sallie (Christina Kirk), two young women who cannot finish their dissertations, refuse to let their frustrated boyfriends, Lyle (Thomas Jay Ryan) and Karl (Jonathan M. Woodward), into their apartments or their lives. The foibles of procrastination take center stage as the women, glued to their desks, obsessively telephone-talk their way through fantasies and fears in a desperate attempt to fight off the inevitable -- love and real life.
