Kiss Me On the Mouth

by Melanie Angelina Maras

Refreshing, to read a new play! There are some genuinely funny moments throughout.. though on the whole it felt more cinematic to me. Many of the scenes end abruptly and I was left with questions that went unanswered. That being said, I think the play's strong suit is the relationships between all four characters. Definitely some good scenes - with many for two women which is always nice to find! On the surface it seems simplistic but I think there are many deeply-rooted emotions buried in each of these characters. It's definitely a modern play - telling stories of our generation.
