Kiss Me Like You Mean It: First Performed in the UK at Soho Theatre and Writers' Centre, on 21 May 2001 (Oberon Modern Plays) (Paperback)
Three A.M. on a hot midsummer's night in Manchester. A party taking place in a shabby Victorian terrace house. In the back garden Tony and Ruth meet, thanks to a stolen can of beer. On the floor above, Don and Edie are having a party of their own. As the night progresses, love is definitely in the air - but then so is the smell of cheap lager. And even cheaper aftershave. Kiss Me Like You Mean It was shortlisted for the Meyer-Whitworth Award, and has subsequently been produced in various venues around the world, including a successful three month run in Paris in 2004.
