Obie Award Winner Melissa James Gibson, whose play [sic] was one of the standout plays of the Off-Broadway season in 2001, returned to Soho Rep with her newest work Suitcase or, those that resemble flies from a distance.

With Suitcase or, those that resemble flies from a distance Gibson revisits the themes of transitional lives lived in transitional spaces: her poignant and often hilarious new play revolves around Jen and Sallie, who spend their time not finishing their dissertations and not letting their boyfriends into their apartments.
