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.
