In a dashingly funny co-production between Stray Cat Theatre and Arizona Theatre Company they stage the adult farce, “Sex With Strangers,” with droll sparkle.
The Laura Eason off-Broadway hit is filled with witty comedic dialogue as it explores a one-time sexual encounter between a pair of authors as they sprinkle today’s sexual mores into their very different lives and novels. Olivia is looking for a loose commitment while Ethan is interested in a quick fling without lasting consequences. They both use each other to get what they want as they spend the play cleverly dancing around the sexual ramifications of their affair.
...delivered by a pair of engaging performers they humorously milk every amusing nuance out of the script. They add further shenanigans with the physical game the pair dance throughout the play as they transform “Sex With Strangers” into an amusing delight.
Stray Cat Theatre Artistic Director Ron May stages the play with quick paced lunacy that works well. May has two expert performers with superb comic timing who add mischievous malarkey to the situation.
“Sex With Strangers” is a funny play about contemporary relationships and what causes people to link up. It is sharply performed by an excellent cast.
