From the moment Becky arrives at her coworker Andrew's apartment for her blind date with straight-talking Max, it's clear the evening won't go as planned. Becky Shaw is a cleverly constructed comedy about ambition, happiness, the cost of being truthful and the perils of the dating world.

Praise for Becky Shaw:

  • "[A] tangled tale of love, sex and ethics among a quartet of men and women... One of the great pleasures of BECKY SHAW is the way the moral ground keeps shifting underneath your feet." — New York Times
  • "The characters in Gionfriddo’s blind-date-gone-bad black comedy share the potential to revolt…They’re also subversively funny—and improbably charming. Grade: A." —Entertainment Weekly
  • "…scathing, class-conscious comedy…BECKY SHAW exerts a hypnotic pull, thanks in large part to the wonderfully witty dialogue and complex characterizations." —New York Post

Open Arts Stage is committed to providing rehearsal and performance space to artists at affordable rates, and we look forward to hosting your next event.
