Boy Gets Girl
Boy Gets Girl
Time Magazine #1 play of the year!

"Rebecca Gilman is a playwright to hail. Boy Gets Girl is gripping and important—the finest, most disturbing American play in years." —TIME

"A disturbing chiller … the play works powerfully at its most basic level as a suspenseful tale about the unraveling of a strong woman's sense of security in the urban jungle." —Variety

"A smart, unsettling play." —The Wall Street Journal

"The play is first-rate." —The New York Times
By Rebecca Gilman.

Cast: 4m., 3w. "In Boy Gets Girl, Rebecca Gilman offers up a tale of Gotham singledom you won't be seeing any time soon on Sex and the City. A disturbing chiller about a woman whose life of accomplishment is quickly destroyed by a disturbed admirer, the play works powerfully at its most basic level, as a suspenseful tale about the unraveling of a strong woman's sense of security in the urban jungle. It certainly will touch a tender nerve in everybody who's ever squirmed through a creepy blind date … " (Variety). Theresa Bedell is a successful reporter in New York who loves her work and the life she has made for herself. A relationship with a man would complete the picture and so she agrees to go on a blind date with a friend of a friend. Tony is attractive and funny, but Theresa isn't sure, and after a second date she's convinced they have nothing in common and sees no point in continuing the relationship. Tony, though, thinks otherwise. What at first seems like persistence on his part grows into obsession, and Theresa's annoyance with Tony turns to terror as he begins to threaten her and those around her. Ultimately, Theresa must fight to save herself from being erased by Tony's actions—actions which call into question the assumptions at the very heart of romantic pursuit. Multiple sets. Approximate Running Time: 2 hours.
