Unit Set/Multiple Settings

The boyfriends of two Ph.D. candidates are trying to talk their way into the women's apartments. Dissertations go nowhere; objects get found; boyfriends won't get lost; love figures in there somewhere.
"SUITCASE, Gibson's crafty philological farce about two mismatched couples…expands on the playwright's penchant for elliptical wordplay by adding emotional resonance…Everyone brings baggage into a relationship, but Gibson makes it fun to unpack." —Time Out NY. "Gibson—whose [SIC] had its beguiling premiere at this same theater last year—is a thoroughly original talent, a stylist who appreciates the musical impact of words as much as she can simultaneously love and mock her overly articulate, emotionally conflicted characters." —NY Newsday. "…a dramatist who surprises and delights…I don't know where Melissa James Gibson is going from here, but I'll be there." —NY Observer. "Like Caryl Churchill…Ms. Gibson uses the style of language to convey as much meaning as the words themselves…a bittersweet comedy of manners." —NY Sun.
