Play Description:

After Callie, a jaded New Yorker, meets Sara, a visiting elementary school teacher, the two unexpectedly fall in love. Their first kiss in a public park in New York City provokes a violent attack that transforms their lives in a way they could never anticipate. Told through a series of nonlinear vignettes, Stop Kiss is poignant and has a surprising amount of humor. There is no physical violence on stage; the attack on Callie and Sara is described, not enacted.

  This play contains mature themes, language, homophobic slurs, and offensive language.

About the Drama Program

Drama at Lower Columbia College offers courses designed to provide students with an understanding of the theatre and an appreciation of theatre, acting, technical theatre, and production experience through performance. Students develop the ability to express themselves in many ways: acting on stage, seminar discussion, play analysis, review writing, script interpretation, kinesthetic expression, and technical proficiency in set, costume, and light design.

One play is presented each quarter during the academic year. Participation is open to all students, college employees and members of the local community.

Students interested in acting can complete an associate degree or begin studies to transfer to a baccalaureate program. Drama courses can also be an important supplement for those who plan to major in the humanities or social sciences.
