College best friends Kai and Julie are due to head back to New York after a miserable vacation in Paris when things come to a head pulling them apart. Kai meets Radha and Anissa—a sophisticated French couple in a life-changing moment, while Julie meets Ira—a woman deep in a war against herself. Twenty-four hours later no one’s life is the same. Getting There is a lyrical, funny, and philosophical play about love, and what it means to come home.
From Dipika Guha:
Getting There was inspired by the work of Maggie Nelson. I wanted to write a play that was also a kind of meditation on love, aging and solitude. What emerged was this queer love story—five interconnected lives and three imperfectly perfect days in Paris.
