This is tag team theatre with a bite. At the end of a relationship, two characters meet in the basement laundry room of an apartment building. Four actors step in and out of the roles of Carrie/Cary and Frances/Francis to create the story of four breakups: a man leaving a woman, a woman leaving a man, a woman leaving a woman, and a man leaving a man. The gender permutations reveal the simple fact that rejection and lost love are universals. In parting, the characters learn important truths about themselves and move, not without bitterness, toward a fresh start.
Gendermat was first produced as part of the 1997 "Wing and a Prayer" One Acts Play Festival by StoneGate Artists Ensemble in Red Bank, New Jersey. The production was directed by Rose Anne Testa. It was produced in New York City on March 14, 1998 at the Theatre Studio, where it was directed by Chuck Noell.
