SEX PLAY
July 17-20
 
Serena, Nic, Paloma, and Ella are… acquainted. They are individually charismatic, vulnerable, curious, and queer. They are pleasure-seeking. And they are terrified. Navigating the complexities of contemporary dating rituals, unconventional therapy sessions, and the erotic intimacy of fantasy exploration, they discover the joys—and anxieties—of asking for what we want. A lyrical, playfully candid meditation on the nature of human intimacy.

About The Pack Theater
 
The Pack is a collective of NYC theater artists and designers making highly collaborative, physically expressive new shows that elevate underrepresented stories. The company’s unconventional making process aims to queer the ways in which characters are developed, worlds are built, and structure is employed. Helmed by Artistic Directors Jenny Reed and Sam Sheppard, The Pack’s projects have been developed and presented at Paradise Factory, Triskelion Arts, Drama League, Columbia University, Edinburgh Fringe, and in immersive theater experiences and feminist toy shops across NYC. thepacktheater.com
