Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune, written by Terrence McNally, is a two-character romantic drama that explores themes of loneliness, intimacy, and the complexities of human connection.



The play opens in a Manhattan walk-up apartment after a one-night stand between Frankie, a cynical waitress, and Johnny, a short-order cook from the same restaurant. Frankie, yearning for normalcy, expects Johnny to leave after their encounter. However, Johnny, a shy and emotionally guarded man, hesitates. Over the course of the night, fueled by conversation, arguments, and vulnerability, an unexpected connection begins to develop.



Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune received critical acclaim for its honest portrayal of human relationships. It has been revived numerous times and continues to resonate with audiences due to its exploration of universal themes and its poignant portrayal of two lonely souls finding solace and connection in each other.
