Genre: Comedy, Lesbian+Gay

The Toronto Fringe Award-winning play by Kate Hewlett

From critically acclaimed The Bridge Theatre Company comes Humans Anonymous, winner of the Best of Toronto Fringe, Best Ensemble and Best Director Awards.

One is afraid of loneliness; two is afraid of happiness; three is afraid of ignorance; four is afraid of judgment; five is afraid of gremlins...even the nice ones. One loves four; three loves two; five loves cats. Can five over-caffeinated humans stumble their way to a fear-free future?

When an uptight businesswoman who prefers lattes to love meets a sexually-experimental young genius looking for Mrs. Perfect, there is more than just coffee brewing. With the assistance of a dry-witted best friend, his feline-obsessed sister and five addictive personalities, happiness is only twelve steps away. Humans Anonymous is a heartbreaking new comedy about friendship, fear, love...and caffeine.

Robin A. Paterson directs.

About the Company: The Bridge Theatre Company

Founded in 2004, The Bridge Theatre Company is a New York City-based ensemble of Canadian and American theatre artists dedicated to the cross-border development, workshop and production of new plays.  The company examines the relationship between these two contemporary theatrical cultures through the work of emerging playwrights, actors and directors.  Through its New Play Development program, the Bridge accepts a wide variety of script submissions from writers in the United States and Canada, hoping to discover and develop new plays that may examine everything from the bridges between two nations to the bridges between two people.  For more information, visit http://thebridgetheatrecompany.com.
