Sara and Callie are
walking through New York City's West Village very late
at night, when they share their first kiss. This leads
to a vicious attack by an angry bystander, in which Sara
is horribly injured. She falls into a coma, which
becomes one of the major subjects of the play. George,
Callie's good friend, tries to help with the situation,
but there is little he can do. Peter, Sara's
ex-boyfriend from St. Louis, comes to help nurse her
back to health. Throughout Stop Kiss,
relationships are explored, formed, and even ended.
Diana Son elaborates on the depths of human emotion and
compassion in this play.
