A blackout in their building leads new neighbors David and Nat into a night of games and revealing conversation. Two years later, their lives reconnect when a domestic dispute in the building erupts on a night when David brings home a one night stand.

"Meaningful Conversation is raw and real. It depicts a snapshot of life like I've never seen on stage."

Stephanie Wild, Broadway World

"Panettieri’s characters are fleshed out and unabashedly human... the actors bring them to life with tenderness."

Austin Fimmano, Plays To See
