We thought the acting and script were wonderful. Thursday night there was a very stimulating after-play discussion with the entire cast and director - if you have the opportunity it is well worth staying after the play.

Featuring LiveWire Collective members Joel Ewing and Madeline Long, with Laura Bess Ewing, Krista Krauss, Max Lesser and Rob McLean.

Anxious about the state of his relationship, Vincent impulsively stands up a date with his longtime girlfriend.

LiveWire is proud to present the Chicago premiere of this charming and theatrical piece by Naperville native Mat Smart.
