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.
"Gina Gionfriddo's comedy of bad manners, a tangled tale of love, sex and ethics among a quartet of men and women in their thirties, is as engrossing as it is ferociously funny, like a big box of fireworks fizzing and crackling across the stage from its first moments to its last…deftly plotted, scabrous and sharp-witted…One of the great pleasures of BECKY SHAW is the way the moral ground keeps shifting underneath your feet." —NY Times. "The characters in Gionfriddo’s blind-date-gone-bad black comedy share the potential to revolt…They’re also subversively funny—and improbably charming. Grade: A." —Entertainment Weekly. "…scathing, class-conscious comedy…BECKY SHAW exerts a hypnotic pull, thanks in large part to the wonderfully witty dialogue and complex characterizations." —NY Post. "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. "The perfect nourishment for theatergoers starved for a dramatic conflagration or two…Gionfriddo's creations talk with rat-tat-tat ferocity…the laughs flow freely." —Associated Press.
