    12-year-old Charlotte is struggling to come to terms with the death of her twin brother and the growing "legend" surrounding the event. As with all great legends, truth and fiction become inextricably linked in this play. The truth is that moments before he died, he kissed her, gently, on the lips. The legend is that everything Charlotte kissed from that moment forward also died. This play purposely blurs the line between fact and fiction. Moreover, it suggests that drawing that line might be an act of futility as, if we're lucky, we all become legends in the end. Learn More
