STOP KISS Cast Spotlight: Hope Phillips

Proud Mary Theatre Company follows up the smash musical Falsettos with the modern classic lesbian drama Stop Kiss by Law and Order: Criminal Intent producer and playwright Diana Son.

Performed during International Women’s Month, Stop Kiss is a masterful play about the relationship of two women and their first kiss which provokes a violent attack. This production will feature an intimate avant-garde setting and visuals.

Directed by theatre artist Melanie Ann Wiliford (also founder of Thespis in the Green Room podcast), Stop Kiss stars Kelly Davis (Best Actor Winner for The Pink Unicorn; Fun Home; The Laramie Project), Hope Phillips (A Straightforward Scenario), and Audrey Zongrone Waldrop (The Laramie Project; The Gayest Christmas Pageant Ever), in addition to surprise male guests.
