SEX WITH STRANGERS by Laura Eason
Mitch and Murray Productions proudly presents the Vancouver premiere of SEX WITH STRANGERS by Laura Eason, running October 26th through November 10th at Studio 16 in Vancouver.
The story: When twenty-something star sex blogger and memoirist Ethan tracks down his idol, the gifted but obscure forty-ish novelist Olivia, he finds they each crave what the other possesses. As attraction turns to sex, and they inch closer to getting what they want, both must confront the dark side of ambition and the trouble of reinventing oneself when the past is only a click away.
Sex with Strangers is directed by Mitch and Murray Productions Artistic Director Aaron Craven and features actors Loretta Walsh and Markian Tarasiuk.
What the critics are saying:
"The sex is frequent and hot but discreet in the seductive performances at the heart of Aaron Cravens thought-provoking Mitch and Murray Productions staging at Studio 16. An entertaining and unpredictable evening of theatre". Jerry Wasserman, The Vancouver Sun
"Easons play takes flight, in a sometimes twisted bond where we are never quite sure who is using whom. Terrific performances from Loretta Walsh and Markian Tarasiuk, under the direction of Aaron Craven". Mark Robins, Vancouver Presents
"Mitch and Murray Productions never fails to bring edgy, interesting scripts and complex, multi-dimensional characters to light. Easons script crackles. Walsh and Tariasiuk get some real chemistry going". Jo Ledingham
"Both actors deliver excellent naturalistic performances and take full advantage of the comedy. Tarasiuk captures the whole range in Ethanfrom the swagger to the trembling insecurity. And Walsh is every bit as alert and responsive". Colin Thomas
*Lower Price Performances - 2 for 1 performances on Wednesday October 31st and Tuesday November 6th. Matinee on Sunday November 4th.
