TIME Magazine hailed Boy Gets Girl as the #1 Play of 2000 and Variety called it a suspenseful tale about the unraveling of a womans sense of security in the urban jungle. It certainly will touch a tender nerve with anybody whos ever squirmed through a creepy blind date. American Theatre declared, The play is as creepy as it is well-made, by turns funny and frightening and dramatic, and it makes for a suspenseful, thought-provoking evening of theatre.|
When hard-working magazine journalist Theresa goes on a blind date with Tony, she is a little apprehensive about being out with a total stranger in a big city. Be prepared to feel the walls close in, as infatuation takes a sinister turn towards obsession in Boy Gets Girl by Rebecca Gilman, Pulitzer Prize finalist and recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship.
Saltbox Theatre Collective's Boy Gets Girl provides a scary insight into the world of a stalkers victim, exploring how such a situation swiftly consumes ones life. As paranoia and frustration take control of Theresas orderly world, she sees little hope of eluding Tonys persistence. A suspenseful play with themes of sexism and self-examination, Gilmans Boy Gets Girl will call into question societys idea of the romantic pursuit.
The cast and crew features Katie Zisson, Tomica Jenkins, Ryan Smetana, Brian Bengston, Jason James Thompson, Alexandria Rust, Scott Jones with Stage Manager Robert Pacheco. Directed by Brian Fruits
