Love Bites
By Melissa Ross

The love lives of bugs fascinate two 30-something researchers at New York’s Museum of Natural History, but their own conflicted love affairs are under the microscope in this hilarious, edgy, and explicit look at love in our times.

Melissa Ross’s play Thinner Than Water has received productions in NYC and Chicago and is included in “New Playwrights—Best Plays of 2011.” Her new play, Of Good Stock, will receive its world premiere at South Coast Repertory in 2015. She is a graduate of the Juilliard School and a member of Labyrinth Theater Company.
