Very strong performance , i felt like they were living on the stage , you forget that you are in the theater be ready for 2 characters through out the whole play, not much action, great conversation , very believable. I truly enjoyed it.
Quotes & Highlights
- “Laura Eason's smart and riveting Sex with Strangers … is the best drama I've seen about the seismic changes in the arts-media landscape…. it is a visceral, probing, deeply honest play.... Don’t miss it. ” --Chicago Tribune
- “Honest and alluring… wonderfully ambivalence-fueled… Eason raises many delicious questions about giving in to the instant feedback and gratification of the Internet, about May-December romances, about men and women and money, and about how writers use the people in their real lives.” --Chicago Sun-Times
Sex with Strangers
by Laura Eason
Directed by associate artist Jessica Thebus
Featuring ensemble member Sally Murphy with Stephen Louis Grush
Ethan is a hot young writer whose online journals of "sexcapades" are the buzz of the blogosphere. Olivia is an attractive 30-something whose own writing career never took off. They hook up, sex turns into dating and dating into something more complicated. A break-out hit at Steppenwolf’s 2009 First Look Repertory, Sex with Strangers explores what happens when our online and offline identities intersect.
Laura Eason, a longtime member of the Lookingglass Theatre ensemble, is the author of more than 15 plays, both original works and adaptations. Previous productions at Steppenwolf include When the Messenger is Hot, A Tale of Two Cities and Huck Finn. Jessica Thebus directed Sex with Strangers during Steppenwolf’s 2009 First Look Repertory of New Work. Other Steppenwolf directing credits include Intimate Apparel, Dead Man’s Cell Phone, No Place Like Home, When the Messenger is Hot (also 59E59 Theaters, NYC) and Sonia Flew.
