Boy Gets Girl

The University of Notre Dame Department of Film, Television and Theatre (FTT) will present “Boy Gets Girl” by Rebecca Gilman Nov. 11 to 21 in the Philbin Studio Theater at Notre Dame’s DeBartolo Performing Arts Center.

A complete schedule of performances is available here. Admission is $15 for the general public, $12 for faculty, staff and seniors, and $10 for all students. Tickets can be purchased online at or by calling the ticket office at 574-631-2800.

Directed by FTT faculty member Siiri Scott, “Boy Gets Girl” tells the story of reporter Theresa Bedell, who has built a successful life in the city. Finding time for a relationship is hard and gets even harder after she agrees to a blind date with a friend of a friend. Tony is attractive and funny, but after a second date Theresa decides not to continue the relationship. Tony thinks otherwise and Theresa very quickly finds herself in a very uncomfortable role. Ultimately she must figure out how to fight back and reclaim a version of her former life or face being erased by Tony’s actions. This 2000 premiere from Gilman calls into question assumptions at the heart of romantic pursuit.
