What better way to spend a summer night than watching a funny, heartwarming Romantic Comedy? The fast-paced, hilarious play Romantic Comedy by Bernard Slade (author of Same Time, Next Year) will be brought to life by The Saybrook Stage Company at The Kate from July 18th through July 21st and is sure to provide a night of laughter and love! Romantic Comedy opened on Broadway in 1979 and tells the story of arrogant, self-centered and sharp tongued Jason Carmichael, successful co-author of Broadway romantic comedies, as he faces two momentous events: he is about to marry a society belle and his collaborator is retiring. Enter Phoebe Craddock, Vermont schoolteacher and budding playwright. Quicker than a flash, Jason acquires a talented and adoring collaborator in the mousy Phoebe. Fame and success are theirs for ten years and then their partnership and worlds suddenly change – but for better or worse? Fresh, witty writing and clever comedic timing makes Romantic Comedy the perfect summer night.
