“Human time does not turn in a circle; it runs ahead in a straight line. That is why man cannot be happy: happiness is the longing for repetition.” —Milan Kundera
A man walks into a bar…he sees a beautiful woman sitting alone at a table and the chase is on! Given just ten minutes to win her over, Sir and Ma’am engage in a dialogue that will forever shape their lives. Encore! From the first blush of love, to old-age we witness these dramatic lovers perform the romantic scenario that first drew them together. Through their script where words remain static even as their meanings change, this couple’s anniversaries are cause to celebrate and suffer all the extremes of human existence.
Encore is a thoroughly theatrical and refreshingly unsentimental romantic comedy!
