From the back cover:
Art imitates Life. Life imitates Art. When two actors with a history are thrown together as romantic leads in a forgotten 1930s melodrama, they quickly lose touch with reality as the story onstage follows them offstage. Stage Kiss captures Sarah Ruhl's singular voice. It is a charming tale about what happens when lovers share a stage kiss - or when actors share a real one.
"A knockabout farce that channels Noël Coward and Michael Frayn." --Chicago Tribune
"A gift and a rarity. A superb new romantic comedy that's moving, smart, and flat-out hilarious. You will have difficulty breathing. Stage Kiss is that funny." --New York Magazine
"Suffused with warmth and humor. Sarah Ruhl frothily whips together romantic comedy and backstage farce in this lively comedy about a pair of actors [...] who find life and art mixing together when they rekindle an old romance during rehearsals for a play." --The New York Times
