Synopsis "Ten vignettes depict modern relationships and the seeds of disaster inherent in each of them. Among the relationships are those between two emotional masochists; a sexually open marriage that reaches crisis when the husband reveals he has not been cheating; two people fresh out of therapy and so taken with their own new found psychological openness that they fail to pay attention to the other's emotional state and a wife and mistress who think they want what the other has. The common thread is the continuity of romantic problems of a woman pursued by five perfect men who can't compete with the memory of the bastard she was married to.
Comment "The simpler the staging, the better. Chair and tables to suggest a cocktail lounge, a living room and a bedroom. Bruce Kane has had plays produced in New York and Los Angeles. He writes for movies and television. The play was first produced at the West Coast Ensemble in Los Angeles. The Los Angeles Weekly described the play as 'moving quickly and devastatingly.'
Addendum, June 21, 1997 "Presently, 'Opposites Attract' is
under consideration for productions in Australia, cable access in Massachusetts
and as part of a collegiate contest in Canada."
