SEX WITH STRANGERS

SEX WITH STRANGERS

November 10th, 2017 - November 11th, 2017

Renaissance Theaterworks opens its 25th Anniversary Season with SEX WITH STRANGERS by Laura Eason, running October 20 – November 12, 2017 at the Broadway Theatre Center in the Historic Third Ward of Milwaukee.

When frustrated forty-ish novelist, Olivia, meets fast-talking, twenty-something, blogger and memoirist, Ethan – known more for his sexual prowess than his prose – she worries that she will become just another chapter in his little black book.

Their funny and passionate union blurs the lines between rewrites, romance and royalties – proving you can’t judge a book by its author.

SEX WITH STRANGERS was one of America’s top ten most produced plays from 2014-2016. In addition to playwriting, Laura Eason is also a producer/writer for the Emmy Award-winning series House of Cards.

Directed by Mallory Metoxen, featuring Marti Gobel & Nick Narcisi

Performances are: Wednesday* – Friday @ 7:30pm (*one Wednesday Matinee performance on November 8 at 1:00pm), Saturdays at 4:00pm & 8:00pm* (*No 8:00pm performance November 4 or 11), Sundays at 2pm.

Tickets are available through the Broadway Theatre Center Box Office (158 N Broadway, Milwaukee, WI 53202), by phone and online at www.r-t-w.com
