by Lindsay Timmington

In a world where you swipe to hookup and ghost to end a relationship, finding something meaningful, or even just normal feels nearly impossible. Hard-edged Bridgie and quirky, buttoned-up Kate navigate the New York City dating landscape in an attempt to find something real in the parade of 10 guys that pass through their midtown bar. Based on true life stories and spectacularly failing the Bechdel test, Squirrel Screams and Other Dating Sounds is an honest look at how difficult it is to date in the new millennium and how the relationships we find aren’t always the ones we’re looking for.
