Prelude to a Kiss - June 7 - 22

  • Whidbey Island Center for the Arts 565 Camano Avenue Langley, WA, 98260 United States (map)

By Craig Lucas
Directed by Deana Duncan

"…you never know where one little kiss will take you….”

A whirlwind courtship. A storybook wedding. A kiss for the bride. And suddenly everything changes. When Peter and Rita's brand-new marriage is strained by a magical twist of fate, true love will never mean quite the same thing again. 

"…a play that propels the audience through hairpin emotional turns, some soaring heavenward and others plummeting toward earth, until one is deposited at the final curtain in a winded and teary yet exhilarating state of disorientation…PRELUDE TO A KISS takes a most familiar genre, romantic comedy, in directions that are idiosyncratic and challenging." —NY Times.

"Like many a fairy tale, this isn't a 'what you see is what you get' happy-ending story. Like the brothers Grimm, Lucas knows that what you see in such stories embodies the unseen darker fears that haunt us from childhood on—in this case the fear of aging and its accompanying losses and the ultimate fear of death…Lucas' smartly written and solidly structured script holds up very well indeed…

Prelude to a Kiss is Lucas at his lightest and brightest. A rare combination of laughter, romance and throat-tightening substance." —CurtainUp.
