Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune is a play about a woman and a man. They work together in a restaurant. Frankie’s a waitress, Johnny’s a cook. They meet but don’t connect.

Throughout the two-act play, the star-crossed lovers are faced with trying to salvage something that ought to last, and not self-destruct.
