the mystery of love & sex

By Bathsheba Doran

April 5 – May 8, 2016

From one of the writers of HBO’‘s Boardwalk Empire and Showtime‘’s Masters of Sex comes an unexpected love story of evolving friendship, finding your own path, and the value of family.

Complete opposites, Charlotte and Jonny have been best friends since they were children. Now, as college students on the eve of graduation, they toy around with taking their friendship romantic. Or not. Why decide? After all, neither is sure they are even attracted to the other (plus, Charlotte thinks she might be really attracted to the ultra-cool Claire). Meanwhile, Charlotte’‘s parents, an unlikely couple themselves, push the kids for a definition even while their own relationship founders. Gradually, secrets and truths emerge as playing grown-up turns into actually growing up.

Funny, insightful, with an intense and complex core, Bathsheba Doran’‘s (Nest) newest play brilliantly examines intimacy, identity and, of course, the many mysteries of love and sex.
