GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- “In each story line of ‘Stop Kiss,’ the playwright Diana Son traces the history of their romance,” said Roy Conboy, director of “Stop Kiss.” “In the ‘before,’ we follow the ups and downs of their attempts to get together. In the ‘after,’ we follow the ups and downs of whether they can ever be together while the forces of the outside world bear down on their relationship.” Much like their roles on stage, the duo said their friendship also shares a special meaning. “The whole play is about evolving friendship, and I think anyone who has a best friend can relate to the situations these characters are put in,” Anderson said. “Both Lauren’s and my characters realize how special their friendship is, and that is why they fall in love.”
