“People are always trying to categorize relationships, to put them in tidy little packets,” says one of the characters in the play. “But there are things that don’t fit in tidy little packets.”
“No one is safe from the exquisite perversity of the human heart,” Lefcourt points out. “We are pulled along in unpredictable directions. You just never know who you might fall in love with.”
Playing a cameo role and acting as a catalyst to some of the action is… a pair of Fluevogs.
“Shoes bring out feelings of love and responsibility in the play,” explains director Terri Hanauer. “Fluevogs are super cool shoes that can be worn by both sexes. Who knows? In the end, maybe it’s all about shoes.”
