"A tangled tale of love, sex and ethics among a quartet of men and women in their 30s ... as engrossing as it is ferociously funny, like a big box of fireworks fizzing and crackling across the stage from its first moments to its last." New York Times

From the moment that Becky arrives overdressed for her blind date with straight-talking Max, it's clear the evening won't go to plan. In the immediate fallout, Becky becomes an object of devotion for her boss Andrew, who appears to have a fetish for vulnerable women. In turn, Andrew's wife Suzanna turns to her step-brother Max for comfort, and their mutual desire begins to resurface.
A biting American comedy with sharp, witty dialogue about ambition, the cost of being truthful, and the perils of a blind date.

This modern classic edition features an introduction to the play by Julia Listengarten.
