CAST OVERVIEW: 1 Man (35-55), 1 Woman (late 20s-30s). Ages are somewhat flexible with this show.

SENGA QUINN (late 20-30s) A Broadway dancer who has suffered a severe leg injury. When the play begins, she has been holed up in her apartment since leaving the hospital, drinking Scotch and taking pills. She is wearing a big leg brace, and may need more surgeries.

EVER MONTGOMERY (35-55) A professor of Geosciences at the New York Institute of Technology who lives in Senga’s apartment building. He is on the autism spectrum (Asberger's), and does not like to be touched. He has a mandatory award dinner to attend in a week that requires formal dress and dancing “post-dessert,” so he seeks out Senga for a dance lesson.

Synopsis:
The play centers on Ever, a man with Asperger’s syndrome, who seeks the instruction of a Broadway dancer to learn enough dancing to survive an awards dinner.
The dancer, Senga, however, is recovering from an injury that may stop her dancing career permanently. As their relationship unfolds, they’re both caught off-guard by the discoveries—both hilarious and heartwarming—that they make about each other and about themselves.

“You don’t want it to end…” —The Boston Globe.
“Laughs abound in this play and so do those plucked heartstrings…a perfect evening of theatre.” —BerkshireBrightFocus.com.
“...goes beyond the conventions of a romantic comedy to an enthralling evening…totally absorbing…brilliantly conceived… ” —BroadwayWorld.com.
