In Gina Gionfriddo’s BECKY SHAW, a newlywed couple fixes up two romantically challenged friends: wife’s best friend, meet husband’s sexy and strange new co-worker. When an evening calculated to bring happiness takes a dark turn, crisis and comedy ensue in this wickedly funny play that asks what we owe the people we love and the strangers who land on our doorstep.

Gina Gionfriddo won the 2009 Outer Critics Circle Award (John Gassner Award). The play received nominations for the Lucille Lortel Award, Outer Critics Circle Award, and Drama Desk Award as Outstanding Play.

Review - Becky Shaw: All's (Vanity) Fair
by Kristin Salaky - January 9, 2009

It's such a shame that Second Stage's crackling production of Becky Shaw, Gina Gionfriddo's comedy of ill manners, is scheduled to close on February 1st. I can't think of a better Valentine's Day entertainment for cynically single urbanites looking to combat the champagne and roses splendor with which the coupled celebrate February 14th than this acidic portrait of the down and dirty business of allowing oneself to be emotionally available. Populated with smart, articulate characters who say clever things while living sad little lives, a night at Becky Shaw can do wonders for the self-esteem of the lonely hearted looking to both be entertained by and feel superior to those in or looking for love.
