About the show

Part of FringeNYC: A former schoolyard bully and his 'favorite' victim each find their own personal hell as college roommates in "a cross between Albee's devastating 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?' and the curious character dynamics of 'The Big Bang Theory.'" -examiner.com More…

Categories: Drama, Comedy, Local. From Forget Me Not Productions. Written by Thomas Tafero. Directed by Cailin Kless.

FROM THE ARTIST:
Alex and Greg both claim to have put their school days behind them and are now “best friends”— but throughout an evening with Alex’s new girlfriend Cindy, their dark past begins to bubble up and unravel the world’s most dysfunctional “bromance.”

Liars and Lovers was playwright Thomas Tafero's first full length show. He premiered on Long Island to positive feedback and always hoped to share it with a wider audience in New York City. Unfortunately, a diagnosis with cancer and subsequent treatments put the project on hold. Three years after his passing, the Forget Me Not Productions team is honored to be making Thomas's dream a reality through FringeNYC.

"I went by the blurb, which announced a cross between 'Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?' and 'The Big Bang Theory.' As it turned out, Thomas Tafero’s heavy-handed, poorly acted tale of college frenemies bears as much resemblance to those two shows as a radish does to a bicycle". Full Review
