In Rebecca Gilman's drama Boy Gets Girl, we meet Theresa, a young, successful reporter who goes on a blind date with Tony, another soul looking for love. After two awkward yet illuminating dates, Theresa sees no point in continuing the relationship. Tony thinks otherwise and begins to stalk Theresa, threatening her personal safety and ability to maintain her own identity. In Boy Gets Girl Gilman examines the loss of self as experienced by victims of stalking.
