HOW TO HOLD HANDS
Our 2016 Premiere Series production opens April 8-17!
Playwrights' Round Table is proud to present the 2016 edition of our Premiere Series, the world premiere of a full length romantic comedy written by local playwright David Strauss.
What if you found the right person at the wrong time?
A romantic comedy set in the modern day, How To Hold Hands is the story of Annie Logan, a sci-fi writer who specializes in books aimed at teen audiences. She's well past her deadline on her newest book, a novel aimed at adult readers. She meets Eric, an adult with Asperger's, at a book signing. Despite his social anxiety, she starts to bond with him as he offers advice on how to finish her book. But when Eric's past reasserts itself, can Annie and Eric find a way to make it work?
