“But that’s love, isn’t it?  Anything that matters carries the potential for hurt.” —from Becky Shaw
In Gina Gionfriddo’s “Becky Shaw,” a newlywed couple fixes up two romantically challenged friends:  wife’s best friend, meet husband’s sexy and strange new co-worker.  When an evening calculated to bring happiness takes a dark turn, crisis and comedy ensue in this wickedly funny play that asks what we owe the people we love and the strangers who land on our doorstep.
About the play, director Dan Schock says, “Becky Shaw is a recipe of life, love, relationships, and emotion mixed with a generous helping of comedy and fun which serves up a story and a show that cannot be missed. “
“Blithely cynical and devastatingly funny . . . witty observations on the emotional damage inflicted by neurotic people in the name of love . . . Gionfriddo is some kind of genius.” ---- Variety
