May 19 – June 18, 2006

A critical and popular success, this bittersweet comedy combines poignancy and laughter as it traces the unlikely romance that begins to develop between two “losers.” What begins as a one-night stand develops into an all-night baring of the souls as Frankie and Johnny discover that it’s never too late to make a connection.

Note: The play contains adult situations and some nudity and is not recommended for anyone under 16.


Erika Imhoof and Ken Arnold give spectacular performances…Never have two actors “clicked” on stage as these two who give award winning performances.

Quotidian’s ‘Clair’ is raw, profound.

The Washington Post


[Ken Arnold is] simply genuine, marvelous and crowd-pleasingly real.  Erika [Imhoof] proves that she is more than a match for her mercurial Johnny.
