Roger and Lucy meet at a convention. Daphne and Nick break down at a diner. Ethan continues to read compulsively from his new book, The Car Accident, which wouldn't exist without Daphne. Soon, it becomes apparent that reality is slippery, time shifty, and we join our characters' struggles with their own discoveries about love, opportunity, and the desire to pause with trepidation as they try to articulate who and what they actually love.

"Harnetiaux does some quite sophisticated structural work here, slipstreaming her events in space [...] and a constantly somersaulting timeline." - Time Out NY

"Put a Walter Mitty-esque imagination through an experimental theatre blender, and you may come close to the spirit and tone of Trish Harnetiaux’s play How to Get into Buildings [...] a solid dose of giddiness topped with a dollop of puppy-love." - Exeunt Magazine

"Playwright Trish Harnetiaux has crafted a piece that is laugh-out-loud funny and at the same time a reminder to embrace every seemingly insignificant moment of your life [...] entertaining & hilarious!” - New York Theatre Review

"A wild, wildly funny ride!" - Culture Catch
