Show Description
From last year's Producer's Pick Award winner comes a heartbreaking queer dramedy! Gen and Mabel like each other. A whole lot. So why can't this relationship seem to get off the ground? As they try to shortcut their way to intimacy by baring their souls, they break each other's hearts repeatedly in tiny, devastating ways - and then come back together. A story about trust, lust, and the quest for connection.

Producer Biography
Funny. Ugly. Human. These are the kinds of plays we do. We like plays where people are at both their worst and their best; where people screw each other–or themselves–over, and have to find a way to deal with it; where people’s hearts hurt, or open, or blossom. We also believe in fun. Our plays will probably make you laugh. Probably more than once. And, we believe in creating art by whatever means necessary. If we are fortunate enough to piece together enough resources for lavish sets and fabulous special effects, awesome. If (more likely) we have to make work on a shoestring budget, on-the-fly, in an unconventional location, then we’ll do that and still knock your socks off. We've won some awards (including last year's Producer's Pick Award), and the New York Times has called us "a lot of fun." We're New York-based. And we love you.
