Additional Info

Lillian and Ben are attracted to one another. The only trouble is they've never met. Or even spoken, for that matter. They've only seen each other in the lobby of the Museum of Natural History where each, for their own reasons, has been drawn. Once they notice each other, the unexpected possibility of love begins to take shape as they work up the nerve, over the course of four weeks, to speak to the other person. Through the use of monologues, imaginary conversations and a shared dream, this unlikely duo - a video game designer and a literature professor - connect in a profound and hilarious way. Published in Off Off Broadway Festival Plays, 29th Series.
