When I read the blurb describing Stop Kiss, I knew it was both a play that I had to see and one that might be difficult to watch. It is the story of a new friendship between two young women that develops into romance and is tragically altered when one of them is brutally assaulted. Lots of gasps and not too many giggles expected in this one, but I was surprised and moved by the care taken with this Bad Habit Productions presentation. The horrific aspects of the story are understated and treated with dignity, while all the humor inherent in a burgeoning relationship is extracted by Director Anna Waldron, who tenderly coaxes authentic performances from a fine, young ensemble.
