Becky Shaw by Gina Gionfriddo

A newlywed couple fixes up two romantically challenged friends.  He is the wife’s “best friend” and unofficial ‘foster brother’.  She is the husband’s sexy and strange new co-worker.  When their ill-fated date takes a dark turn, ethical questions emerge.  What do we owe the people we love and the strangers who land on our doorstep?  “This comedy of bad manners, a tangled tale of love, sex and ethics among a quartet of men and women in their thirties, is as engrossing as it is ferociously funny, like a big box of fireworks fizzing and crackling across the stage from its first moments to its last…deftly plotted, scabrous and sharp-witted…One of the great pleasures of BECKY SHAW is the way the moral ground keeps shifting underneath your feet.” —NY Times.
