ABOUT THE PLAY:

Set in current-day Chicago, “Hypotheticals,” is about a beautiful but misanthropic woman who kisses a stranger in an elevator on her way to psychotherapy. When the stranger turns out to be her new therapist, they’re forced into a professional relationship where the intimate environment is as fertile for romantic tension as it is for personal growth—until the revelation of a mutual secret threatens to bind them together or tear them apart. "Hypotheticals" shatters biases around Neurodiversity and has been well received at readings in Milwaukee, Waco, and Cincinnati, receiving its premiere full production here at Kith & Kin Theatre Collective.
