About The Book
“I’m also going to give you some advice. Your husband is not the Red Cross. The last time he started consoling a cute, suicidal chick, he married her. ”
“Becky Shaw” is an amusing and cleverly constructed comedy about ambition, the cost of being truthful, and the perils of a blind date. The fast and funny dialogue navigates between five distinctively perverse and disingenuously dysfunctional characters.
The plot is as follows: from the moment that Becky arrives overdressed for her blind date with straight-talking Max, it’s clear the evening won’t go to plan. In the immediate fallout, Becky becomes an object of devotion for her boss Andrew, who appears to have a fetish for vulnerable women. In turn Andrew’s wife Suzanna turns to her step-brother Max for comfort, and their mutual desire begins to resurface.
Gina Gionfriddo’s masterful play is a biting American comedy with sharp, witty dialogue and a carefully crafted yet unforced story arc. Character-driven, “Becky Shaw” is a comic tale of tangled love lives and a subtle but acerbic comedy of manners.
