Appropriate kissing for all OCCASIONS 

Intimacy, love and yearning - from two very different perspectives!

ReAction Theatre presents Appropriate Kissing for All Occasions - two provocative short works by playwright David Finnigan, Griffin Theatre Award Winner for 2017.

ReAction Theatre’s artistic director Louise Howlett directs these pieces, laying bare the deep desires that propel us to experience physical and emotional closeness with another human being. Finnigan, known for subverting the paradigm, has written two works that are both enigmatic and transcendent, revealing something completely unique about human connection.


Welcome to Appropriate Kissing for All Occasions! At long last, after waiting what feels like your whole life for help, we have the ultimate LECTURE for you on HOW TO KISS. Our intimacy coach will guide and assist you; she will arm you with tactics so that you will always be prepared. Roll up your sleeves, it’s time to get to work!


To heat you up and cool you down: Jump to a cheap café - rush hour, two waitresses take orders, make drinks, serve food, talk... but behind their conversations is a fragmented jumble of thoughts, desires, emotions and impulses. The whispering voices of their minds will sweep you into the emotional turmoil that lies beneath the mysterious laws of attraction.
