Heartwarming, funny and bursting with energy, The Kiss tells the story of an unlikely friendship between two soldiers. After the timid Ryabovitch is mistakenly kissed for the first time, his world is transformed. Overwhelmed, the wallflower soldier stumbles into a magical adventure. When he tries to tell his story, his relationship with his cocky and overconfident friend, Lobitko, is threatened. Adapted from Chekhov's short story, The Kiss cleverly blends physical comedy, live music and storytelling to create a fun and feel-good show that will have you laughing and crying all at once.
