Sara arrives in New York on a fellowship to teach third grade in the Bronx and befriends Callie, a NY native. As their lives intermingle, romance builds to one fateful kiss on a park bench in the middle of the night.  The fallout of that single kiss reverberates through Sara and Callie's lives, changing them in ways they did not expect.

In many ways, “Stop Kiss” is two stories in one — scenes slalom back and forth between the present-day effects of the assault and Callie’s memories from before her first kiss with Sara, but they maintain their chronology within each storyline. Despite its tremendous ripple effect, the assault isn’t shown onstage.
Brittany Coyne directs a very strong Pitt student cast, with remarkably layered performances from Leenie Baker, as Sara, and Kieran Peleaux, as George. And Lucy Clabby plays Callie with an abundance of relentless cheeriness.
