Boy meets girl. Boy loses girl. Boy and girl reconnect over a play in which they portray lovers reunited. This quirky series of events propels contemporary playwright Sarah Ruhl’s romantic comedy Stage Kiss, put on by Essex Community Players. Kat Redniss of Essex Junction takes center stage opposite Burlington’s Ryan Morra as an actress brought face-to-face with her ex-lover as they star in the revival of a 1930s melodrama. Fantasy and reality begin to collide, leading to love and laughter in this play-within-a-play directed by Roya and Becky Millard.
