David Henry Hwang, Tony Award winner and Pulitzer nominee for M. Butterfly says "Lina Patel is a masterful playwright, capable of exploring both the world and the human heart. Her work provokes, enlightens and moves.” In PERFECT FIT , a new contemporary comedy written by Lina Patel, three friends grapple with the twists and turns of life, years after college. Radhika, a fashion designer in LA, returns to NYC after a dirty divorce to visit ex-boyfriend Jake, only to find out he has a new girlfriend, Hannah. Ex-roommate Mary Beth has a newborn baby but her surgeon-husband Takashi is constantly busy. Can old friendships survive the journey to adulthood? What makes a family? Do we live in a post-racial world? What is boiled wool? Set in New York City today, PERFECT FIT subversively raises these and other pressing questions about contemporary American life with a keen eye and razor sharp wit. Ian Morgan, Associate Artistic Director of The New Group says, "Lina Patel has a great ear and a unerring sense of character. She is always writing about something important, to her and to us, but in a subtle and human way. PERFECT FIT is a rare thing today: a social comedy about heartache. I can't recommend it enough."
