A couple's troubling discussion of their respective numbers of past sexual partners kicks off a thoughtful, absorbing dissection of modern love in this Skylight Theatre Company production of Ian MacAllister-McDonald's new anti-romantic comedy The Sexual Life of Savages. When Hal realizes his girlfriend Jean has had sex with more people than he has, his reaction sparks hurt feelings and sends them each to find guidance, or lack thereof, from their friends. Hal's buddy Clark happily trolls the Internet with his wife, looking for threesomes, and thinks Hal is old-fashioned. Meanwhile, Jean's lesbian coworker sides with her, believing there's no reason to keep your "numbers" down anyway because there's nothing wrong with a little sex. Discomfortingly hilarious and scathingly personal, The Sexual Life of Savages asks hard questions about today's shifting definitions of tolerance, empathy and morality. Learn More

Very entertaining! The ups and downs of the conversation between 2 old friends takes you on quite the roler coaster ride. Laughs...life trauma ....memories....and "issues" covering some heavy duty topics.......over a cup of coffee. Good job!
Quotes & Highlights
“The play is a slightly absurdist, slightly whimsical, deeply ironic and very funny commentary that deflates all we might take to be important, and self-important … It’s a very smart play, an hour and a half of delight.” -LA Weekly (Go!)
“Heart warming, funny, very well directed with brilliant acting, this is good theater.” -thelosangelespost.org
“The men are deadly serious. They never smile, but their dialogue is laugh-out-loud funny and their timing is impeccable. Director Joel Polis has managed to keep things lively in a space that contains only a table and two chairs, two men, and a lot of talk. You’ll love it. I did.” —cynthiacitron.com
