Kiss • a ten minute parable

a short play by Eric Samuelsen

An LDS mom is on her way to start work in a brothel to support her family after her husband has lost his job. She has a degree in Art History, simply because she never expected to have to work, but cannot find other options for employment, even in a museum. A very dark play with adult themes. KISS was formerly a part of the Plan-B Theatre Company production of “Peculiarities,” the author has wished this to be a separate, 10-minute play. It is however included in the film version called “Peculiarities.” (You can see the film on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x3jfgsYE0IY) It can be done as a companion piece, or curtain-raiser, or even an after-thought, or even incorporated whole into the middle of the play.

Visit PECULIARITIES for further information on the entire play.
