Meet Cute is a story about Jane and John who meet at a bus stop — could there be

romance? The show explores their conversation in three different ways using the same

text. One scene. Two actors. Three possibilities.  Because the text is repeated in each

scenario, the focus shifts from behaviour to context and finally to intention. MEET CUTE

speaks to the notion of consent and explores not only what you say, but HOW you say it.
