THE MYSTERY OF LOVE & SEX
By Bathsheba Doran
Iron Crow Theatre
January 25 – February 3
Straight from Lincoln Center Theatre in NYC and from the critically-acclaimed playwright Bathsheba Doran, comes a new play heralded by the New York Times as, “Perfectly wonderful! Among the season’s finest plays.” Deep in the American South, Charlotte and Jonny have been best friends since they were nine. She’s Jewish, he’s Christian; he’s black, she’s white. Their differences intensify their connection, and they are now trying to determine whether their close friendship might be something more. When they discover exactly what “more” entails, sexual desire complicates everything in surprising, compulsive ways, as it comes as a surprise to them both — and to Charlotte’s parents, who are holding secrets and resentments of their own. An unexpected love story about where souls meet and the consequences of growing up, this compelling and spirited narrative of intricate relationships is an entertaining and explosive look at race, sexual identity, and family dynamics.
