STOP KISS ART + CONVERSATION
A pivotal moment of the play STOP KISS takes place in a New York City park. Artist Kathie Foley-Meyer transforms the Friendship Center into a “Park of the Mind” to enrich your experience of the play and highlight the universality of first love and a first kiss. Audience members are invited to “stroll through the park” and add your memories of your favorite first kiss to the trees. This Friendship Center design also creates the space for post-show conversation. Following most of the performances, please find the Director and/or Community Organizer in the Friendship Center and engage in dialogue about the themes of the play.
