An African-American attorney with a successful career discovers she has an Iraqi half-sister she never knew about in award-winning playwright Wendy Graf's latest work. This hard-hitting drama about family conflict and clashing cultures stars L.A Weekly and NAACP Award-winner Diarra Kilpatrick as up-and-coming corporate attorney Julie Dolan, whose carefully constructed life begins to crumble when she meets her half-sister Neyla. Neyla, a violinist, has fled Iraq to audition for Julliard, but Julie suspects there is more to her story. Graf's fresh spin on racial relations gives each of its characters their own voice and point of view as they navigate in a world that has become interconnected and multicultural on every level.

At some point, most people have dealt with the euphoria, the heartache and the reality of intimacy--or lack thereof. Through comedic reincarnations of past relationships, present woes and the lackluster of trying to keep it “interesting,” Intimacies explores what being intimate really means.
Written by Steven Fechter
Directed by John Paul Karliak
Starring Mary McHale and Bryan T. Donovan
Following up on last year's critically acclaimed production The Last Cigarette, Golden Tree Productions will present its second Steven Fechter play at the Lounge Theatre.
Playwright Steven Fechter is the author of the play and screenplay The Woodsman. The play enjoyed a strong run in New York before Fechter adapted it for the screen. The screenplay won best script in the 2001 Slamdance Film Festival and was made into a critically acclaimed film starring Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick in 2003.
Mary McHale, producer and actress, was introduced to Intimacies several years ago by her friend and mentor Steven Fechter. The one-act play was originally written as a one-woman show called Alien Men, conceived in collaboration with Leah Posey and written by Steven Fechter.
