Two troubled souls cross paths: an apprehensive housewife and a disillusioned comedian.
A chance encounter leads them to reflect on their lives as they have been, as they might have been,
and as they might yet be. Can worlds be changed by a kiss?

From director Kenn McLaughlin:

"For me The Kiss is about the accumulation of choices that make up a person's life at any given moment - the roads taken and the roads not taken. It explores the collision of fantasy and fate and it asks its questions through two people in the middle of life, a time when the promise of the future can be shadowed by regrets of the past. It is a play filled with hope and longing that follows two strangers - one man and one woman - who come to deeply value their lives through a brief and inspiring walk together in the woods. And of course, the power of one very meaningful and very intimate kiss!"
