Mitch and Murray Productions proudly announces our next production – the Vancouver premiere of SEX WITH STRANGERS by Laura Eason, October 25th – November 10th at Studio 16 in Vancouver.
This year’s show promises to be yet another provocative, compelling and funny piece of theatre and it will expand on our growing body of critically acclaimed and well attended plays. We’re entering our eighth year as a company and for the fourth straight year, we’re featuring work from a female playwright, this time from Laura Eason, also known from her work as a screenwriter on the hit Netflix series House of Cards.
The story: When twenty-something star sex blogger and memoirist Ethan tracks down his idol, the gifted but obscure forty-ish novelist Olivia, he finds they each crave what the other possesses. As attraction turns to sex, and they inch closer to getting what they want, both must confront the dark side of ambition and the trouble of reinventing oneself when the past is only a click away.
Sex with Strangers will be directed by our Artistic Director Aaron Craven and will feature actors Loretta Walsh and Markian Tarasiuk, actors who are each joining our company for the first time.
Director Aaron Craven last directed Rapture, Blister, Burn for Mitch and Murray Productions and recently appeared onstage for the company in our 2017 production of Smart People. He’s currently filming recurring roles on the TV series’ Travelers and The Bletchley Circle: San Francisco.
Actor Loretta Walsh is the Artistic Director of Kindred Entertainment and is appearing soon in their production of This, opening this month. She is best known for her many seasons as Florence Blakely in the TV series When Calls the Heart. Actor Markian Tarasiuk is the co-founder of SpeakEasy Theatre and has appeared on professional stages across the country and recently onscreen in Take Two, The Magicians, and Project Mc2.
Stay tuned as we announce further details of the show! Early bird tickets will be on sale this fall.
