An actress confronts her ex-boyfriend, who has recently published a scathing memoir about their relationship, in this sharply written new comedy.
Why Actors Can't Love debuted as part of the 2005 Minnesota Fringe Festival starring Maggie Chestovich and Jim Lichtscheidl and was directed by Terry Hempleman. The script won the 2006 American Theater Co-op award for best one-act plays. A full-length version has been workshopped at the Playwrights' Center in Minneapolis and the Ninth Floor in New York.
The City Pages called the play an "unqualified pleasure" and found the script to be "full of subtlety and laugh-out-loud lines." The Star Tribune found the production a "top-notch entry in the battle of the sexes" calling the dialogue "funny, sexy, intimate and heart-wrenching."
