Iron Kisses
Iron Kisses
"In many ways, Iron Kisses needs no insight or explanation—it's heartbreakingly funny and tenderly observant, yet wise and complex. By the end, we inherently know 'Happiness is what you can bear.' We just needed to hear it again." —Rochester Democrat and Chronicle

"Iron Kisses deserves kudos … thoughtful, bittersweet drama about family relationships, loves and losses." —Star Tribune
By James Still.

Cast: 1m., 1w. Iron Kisses is the story of an American family: a son who made up for being gay by being perfect; a daughter who treats her daughter the way her mother treated her; a mother who struggles to love her two children equally; and a father who started missing his son while he was still a little boy. In a revealing theatrical twist, two actors portray the siblings as well as their Midwestern mother and father as the complex nature of love, family and marriage in the 21st century is explored. Alternately heartbreaking and funny, this story is about the mysteries of family and about how the roles we play are as inescapable as they are comfortable. It's about people doing the best they can, how families evolve, how they grow up, and how they can surprise us—if we let them. Unit set. Approximate Running Time: 90 minutes.
