Top Sheffield amateur theatre group, Midland Players, return to the stage with the smart insightful contemporary comedy, ‘STAGE KISS’, by Sarah Ruhl.
First premiered in Chicago in 2011, this is likely to be a new show for many Sheffield theatre-goers.
Being prepared to engage in intimacies such as romantic kissing is part of any actor’s job, if audiences are to imagine they are seeing real life presented on the stage and not just a performance. Is it possible, however, to be so physically intimate with another person, through weeks of rehearsal and night after night of performance, without coming to feel a real romantic connection?
When a married actress returns to the stage following ‘a break’, only to unexpectedly find herself cast as the romantic partner of a former lover, stage-kisses rekindle old flames and the boundaries between what is acted and what is real grow blurred, with hilarious consequences.
£12 (£9 concessions)
