Jimmy (Tom Keenan) is doughnut drive-thru employee whose loneliness leads to the feeling he is disappearing. Jimmy strives for a deeper relationship with phone sex worker Kitty (Andrea del Campo), a woman struggling to make enough money to pay for a psychology program. In the sad town of Newport, Wales, she too feels like she is "slipping between the cracks in a town slipping between the cracks."
This Welsh play by Alan Harris is a sort-of romantic comedy with touches of existential angst and metaphysical wonder. It feels a bit like John Patrick Shanley transposed into an eccentric Welsh key. The going can get dark, and the setting is sparse — two chairs and two tables — but director Steven Schipper sets a sprightly pace over 75 minutes leavened by the formidable charisma of his two actors, who strike a chemistry just as unlikely as the star-crossed would-be lovers they portray.
