Sexually and intellectually provocative…A hell of a lot of fun! —The Hollywood Reporter.
Sex With Strangers runs
Jun 22 through July 23
Fridays & Saturdays 8:00
When twenty-something star sex blogger and memoirist Ethan tracks down his idol, the gifted but obscure forty-ish novelist Olivia, in the middle of a blizzard, they find they each crave what the other possesses. As attraction turns to sex, and they inch closer to getting what they want, the truth comes out and both must confront the dark side of ambition and the difficulty of reinventing oneself when the past is only a click away.
