Synopsis

Blue Surge tells the story of Curt, a small-town Midwestern cop, and Sandy, the 18-year-old prostitute he meets in a raid on a massage parlor. Curt finds an unlikely kindred spirit in Sandy and begins a relationship with her that puts everything he's worked for—his career, his friendships, and his engagement to his fiancé—at risk. But Curt sees a future with Sandy, an escape from his difficult past. As the two of them chase the American Dream, they must learn a skill that is foreign to them both: they must learn to hope. Two acts.

Customer Reviews

"It's a beautiful script. A challenge for actors and designers."
Review by William Fisher, Ohio University, Athens, Ohio

Media Reviews

"Rebecca Gilman has an unerring ear for the ways mismatched people relate, an open heart for the ways they louse things up." -New York Magazine

"Blue Surge never cheats and yet manages to surprise as it unfolds with increasing intensity. The climax is suasive, shatteringly beautiful, and absolutely right." -New York Magazine

"[Rebecca Gilman is] a force to be reckoned with in the American theatre of the new millennium." -The Wall Street Journal

"Gilman tackles what may be her trickiest subject yet: the relationship between history and destiny … she examines the role that class and background can play in shaping an individual's values and expectations … [an] absorbing drama which reaffirms Gilman's flair for dialogue at once stringently intelligent and utterly natural."-USA Today

"Ms. Gilman has the undeniable virtue of focusing with lucidity and evenhandedness on subjects that are more often sensationalized in the popular arts."-New York Times
