Boy Gets Girl
Written by Rebecca Gilman
Directed by Bostin Christopher
Rebecca Gilman’s prize-winning play, Boy Gets Girl. Although written in 2000, the play is still terrifying and relevant today. A Chicago playwright, whose plays often focus on women’s issues, Gilman was the first writer to approach the subject of stalking and the linkage between the psychology of the stalker and the objectification of women’s bodies that we see in pornography. The story concentrates on Theresa Bedell, a young reporter, who goes on a blind date with a seemingly nice guy named Tony. When Theresa rejects Tony’s further advances, the romantic attachment suggested by the ironic title shifts to a dark obsession that has dire consequences for Theresa, who begins to doubt both her sanity and her safety. Named one of Time magazine’s Best Plays of the Decade (2000-2010), Boy Gets Girl is often included on reading lists for Women’s Studies classes. Gilman initially came into public focus for her provocative play, Spinning Into Butter, which explored the dangers of both racism and political correctness.
