Abstract:

Play focuses on the desperate struggles of four individuals as they couple and re-couple, increasingly desperate in their attempts to get 'closer.' For mature audiences only, this is a powerful play examining difficult and painful issues with honesty, integrity, humor and humanity. The language, while poetic and powerful, is rough. Sex is dealt with frankly and graphically. It is an uncompromisingly honest look at the possibility (and impossibility) of true love and true connection in this new cyber-century. Recommended for adults only.
