1. Lala makes fine art, and she's ready to find her muse! A sweet and sticky summer inspires her to romance Dani, a budding feminist... And Albert, his slick-talking twin. Part coming-of-age tale and part laugh-out-loud love spell, K-I-S-S-I-N-G is a tender two-act ode to young Americans. With roles for 2 Black Women and 4 Black Men.
