Johnny's fallen head-over-heels with the reluctant, wary and time-worn Frankie. For her, it's a one-night stand. For him, it's love-everlasting.

Flyer

This warm, weary, wonderful pas-de-deux brings to life two lonely souls, both eager and terrified of reaching out to each other for their last chance at love and happiness. Johnny is the hopeless romantic who quotes Shakespeare and teases, seduces, challenges and cooks for his lady-love, in an attempt to win her heart as well as her hand. Traditionally, it's the male who must court the female and Frankie is unwilling, hardened and deeply hurt.

The play is an intensely intimate, gutsy and funny will-they-or-won't they-live-happily-ever-after romantic comedy with colorfully drawn characters of tremendous warmth and truth and vitality.

The production is directed by Kristine Holtvedt who returns from her position as head of Purdue University's MFA Acting Program to the Aux Dog where she directed the following past productions: Venus in Fur (Best Production of 2013 The Journal); Rapture, Blister, Burn; and the hugely popular summer hit Nunsense.

Friday & Saturday at 8pm - Sunday at 2pm
