Play: Boy Gets Girl


Location: DeBartolo Performing Arts Center, Philbin Studio Theatre

Reporter Theresa Bedell has built a successful life in the city. Finding time for a relationship, though, is hard and gets even harder after she agrees to a blind date with the friend of a friend. Tony is attractive and funny, but after a second date, Theresa decides not to continue the relationship. Tony thinks otherwise, and Theresa very quickly finds herself in a very uncomfortable role. Ultimately, she must figure out how to fight back and reclaim a version of her former life or face being erased by Tony’s actions. This 2000 premiere from Rebecca Gilman calls into question assumptions at the heart of romantic pursuit.
