Dramatic Comedy Characters: 1 male, 1female Phoenix premiered at the 2010 Humana Festival of New American Plays When Bruce and Sue meet four weeks after an uncharacteristic one-night-stand, Sue has this to say to him: one, I had a great time with you that night and two, let's never see each other again. Thus begins a 4,000 mile journey well beyond the confines of their carefully structured worlds. Bruce is fueled by an overwhelming but undefined compulsion to join her in Phoenix. Sue is reluctantly charmed by his persistence, but steadfast in her resolve to keep him at bay. Both are forced to consider a whole new world of possibility, though not one free of difficulty and loss. A dramatic comedy about courage. "A good time...it seduces you even when you know better...rich, anxious subtext...the actors banter and play and flirt...allow yourself to get intoxicated by the pleasures of...romantic comedy." -The New York Times "Remarkable...Organ's dialogue is witty and quick, dialogue is humorous without ever sounding forced...as the play progresses, the issues these characters have about life, death, work and commitment reveal themselves in sometimes funny and sometimes poignant ways. The play as a whole is extremely funny, even though the characters find themselves in serious situations. The script always stays genuine to the characters and what they're going through, however, and never sacrifi ces the work for a joke." -LEO Weekly "An exceptionally well written play." -EU Jacksonville "Phoenix is at its best when it surprises...The playfulness and intelligence...make us feel we're in on a smart new joke instead of being way ahead of a stale old one." -Ross Reports
