Mediocre Heterosexual Sex
The 2019 Problematic Play Festival
Written by Madison Wetzell
Directed by Maya Herbsman
Friday, October 4, 7:30pm
Four hours after getting dumped by her girlfriend, Erin takes to Tinder to try men for the first time. She ends up meeting Aaron, who is only too happy to indulge her submissive fantasies. To make sense of her deeply ambivalent experience, Erin seeks the advice of Violet and Jeremy, a couple in a dominant/submissive relationship and the only straight people she knows. A vexed exploration of gender, power, and kink.
