John Patrick Shanley
Larry and Christine meet at a Thai restaurant for dinner. It's a first date and they know nothing about each other. In the course of conversation, it quickly becomes clear that this is no ordinary couple. Christine is a reconfigured person. A couple of years before she had an accident. She fell through an open trapdoor in a store and landed on her head. As a result of this accident, her face had to be reconstructed. So she looks different. Pretty, but a different pretty. Even more significantly, she received a severe concussion which, among other things, changed her personality. She has become a much nicer person. But she has fallen out of life a little bit. Larry listens to this in astonishment. But he has revelations of his own. He is married and has two children. His wife and he are having terrible problems. Out of loneliness and frustration he has gone on a date. Two people who, through different kinds of trauma, have disconnected from the flow of life. In this play, they help each other by deeply talking to each other. And finally, they reconnect with something vital through a kiss. In volume entitled Missing/Kissing.
