CSM Cause Theatre Announces Cast for ‘Stop Kiss,’ March 14 – April 13

The College of Southern Maryland’s Theatre Company announces its cast for the Cause Theatre production of “Stop Kiss,” a play by Diana Son and presented with special arrangement by Dramatists Play Service, Inc.

After Callie meets Sara the two unexpectedly fall in love. Their first kiss provokes a violent attack that transforms their lives in a way they could never anticipate. “A poignant and funny play about the ways, both sudden and slow, that lives can change irrevocably,” says Variety.
