‘Are you allowed to kiss me? What are the parameters?’

With no husband and no prospects, exactly how far is Stephanie willing to go to start a family?

Based loosely on true events, Kiss Me is an unconventional love story between two young people in the wake of World War One. The war may be over, but Stephanie and Dennis are still fighting their own battles. Meeting for the first time as strangers in a bedsit in Notting Hill, this couple navigate a series of secret liaisons that have huge consequences.

The Directors’ Cuts season is a programme of contemporary theatre presented by the four graduating directors from Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and featuring work by acting, design and production students. Now in its twelfth year and at The Wardrobe Theatre for the second time, the Directors’ Cuts season is firmly established in the Bristol theatre calendar. It has a reputation for showcasing fresh, vibrant and cutting edge theatre work by some of the finest emerging talent in UK theatre. Diverse and highly charged, this is a season of provocative plays which all have an important relevance in today’s society.

“Contemporary drama with extraordinary insightfulness, vivacity and theatrical prowess.”
