Brian Letchworth directs the 8 PM reading at Hunter College that is hosted by The New York State Young Democrats. Sarah Jane Arnegger produces the event.

Stop Kiss, according to press notes, "is about loving and the consequences of loving — both wonderful and terrifying, both heartwarming and heartbreaking. Through humor and ordinary interactions, important questions are asked: When do we risk our personal safety for the sake of speaking our truth? What happens when our hearts are open to another person? Taking risks, both personal and emotional, is at the core of Diana Son's deceptively simple play. Stop... or go forward? Kiss... or keep walking? Speak up... or stay silent?"
Stop Kiss premiered Off-Broadway at the Public Theater. The original cast included Jessica Hecht and Sandra Oh.
