The Kissing Game

By Rhiannon Collett

ABOUT

An urban fantasy that explores love, betrayal, friendship, and identity.

Kate and Sam are best friends, but there’s a tension building in their relationship. When Kate’s sister falls victim to an act of violence, they are determined to bring the perpetrator to justice. On a summer evening, their actions tear a hole in reality as the assailant’s heart falls out of his chest and onto the pavement, just as it begins to snow. Their relationship crumbles in the aftermath and the girls are left to question whether any of us are truly worthy of forgiveness.

The Kissing Game was developed as part of Toronto’s Young People’s Theatre 2017-18 Leaps and Bounds National TYA Play Creation Initiative. As part of the development process, YPT and Youtheatre partnered with the Banff Centre Playwrights Lab to bring The Kissing Game to the 2018 Lab.

Testimonials

"I just wanted to thank you for the great performance. I was very pleasantly surprised that a LGBTQ+ perspective was being presented. It's great to have some of our more invisible students access stories that speak directly to them."
