TALKING TO STRANGERS is a one act comedy set in New York City, about a young man and woman who meet by accident on a bench in Central Park. Anne’s boyfriend has just knocked her into a fountain and she enters dripping wet. At first put off by her openness, Harry, a friendly but quiet graphic artist, seeks to end the conversation quickly, but then finds Anne more interesting as she reveals her insecurities to him, and they develop a friendship through a long conversation about their jobs, love lives, dates with celebrity look-alikes, and loss of virginity. At the end of the play Harry invites Anne to spend the night on a sofa in his apartment, just to get away from her boyfriend – but will Anne accept his invitation?
