April 8 through May 8

This smart and sexy play follows Olivia and Ethan – writers from two different schools of thought. One traditional old-school, the other a blogger – turned book writer – turned script writer who became famous detailing his sexual exploits. Trapped overnight at a snowed-in retreat, their motivations and desires turn competitive, and uncertainty about each other starts to take over. Sex with Strangers is a co-production with George Street Playhouse.[button link=”https://philadelphiatheatrecompany.org/tickets/buy-tickets/” color=”orange” window=”yes”]Buy Tickets[/button] [quote]“Entertaining and inquisitive.” – The New York Times[/quote] [flickr_set id=”72157666390270081″] [quote]“Completely captivating!” – Broadwayworld.com[/quote] [flickr_set id=”72157665960713700″] [quote]“Compelling!” – WHYY[/quote] [flickr_set id=”72157666434143816″] [quote]“A satisfying ping-pong match of wit and personal style!” – Phindie.com[/quote]
