What To Do When You Hate All Your Friends
by Larry Kunofsky
directed by Jacob Krueger
What To Do When You Hate All Your Friends is a play about impossible people trying to make impossible friendships possible. Matt is a guy who hates all his friends. Celia is a woman at the center of The Friends, a secret group that has perfected friendship through specific rules and a rigid ranking system. Matt falls for Celia, but Celia has been burnt in relationships too many times, and so insists that she and Matt remain "just Friends." Can a guy who hates all his friends and a woman who needs friendship to go by-the-book figure out a way to spend time together without going mental? Set in a world of secret hottub parties, craigslist hookups, and the myriad of ways people try to control intimacy by keeping it away, this edgy and witty comedy looks at how romance and friendship works - or doesn't work - in the way we live now.
