About the Show

Part of FringeNYC: Four girls sit in a writing center. They speak eloquently about both SoulCycle and second-wave feminism. The Thing That Never Happened is about the relationships we value, the friendships we don't always value, and waiting ninety minutes to text back.

The New York Times

"‘The Thing That Never Happened’ is a lamentation on hookup culture that means, but fails, also to be a story about putting female friends first. Ms. Gelfman is a recent college graduate, and this is a very young play."

Theatre is Easy
August 16th, 2016

"This new play perfectly captures the common struggles of a college-aged woman…The writing is witty and clever…If at times the main plot becomes a bit unclear, Gelfman's commentary regarding the absurdity of hook-up culture and many young people’s fear of love is smart and refreshing. All four female actresses bring stellar performances to the stage as they balance moments of serious focus with sidesplitting comedy...A hilarious look at the values of friendship."
