Winner of What If?'s fifth annual Playwrights Festival in 2016, Julie Zaffarano's deconstructed romantic comedy centers around two playwrights and former lovers, Sebastian and Lisa, who have been brought together after a four year separation to write a revival romantic comedy.

They are brought back together to collaborate by a producer that wants to cash in on a reunion.
