About the Play

What if falling in love with the wrong person was the best thing you ever did?

Jane and Danny, two drifting New Yorkers, identify themselves as gay…until their friendship catches their hearts off guard. A political protest against the ban on same-sex marriage ignites an unlikely and heartbreaking romance in An Octopus Love Story.

Just when you thought Neil Simon had no descendant in the 21st century, along comes Delaney Britt Brewer. Her snappy new comedy, An Octopus Love Story, is one of the most accessible and genuinely funny shows to hit downtown in quite a while.

Directed with gentle buoyancy by Mike Klar…The production’s best moments, though, belong to Danny and Jane, appealingly rendered by Tyson and Holsopple. These are characters of enormous pluck and charm.

Holsopple’s bravura performance locks it all together, with more than able counterbalance from Tyson and excellent performances from Creighton and Greer.
