Ethics and the Theater will present a play reading of Sex With Strangers by Laura Eason.
Directed by Cecelia Riddett
A man and a woman are snowbound in a cabin without cell-phone service or TV, she a serious novelist and teacher, he a blogger and author of a book about his year of short-term, X-rated liaisons. It seems inevitable that they will end up in bed. But this is no Hugh Grant–Julia Roberts idyll. In the words of New York Times critic Christopher Isherwood, Eason’s play is a “drama of good sex and bad faith,” bitingly funny and unnervingly honest.
Come at 6:30 for a reception and after the reading participate in a discussion of the ethical issues of the play, led by Betsy Ungar.
