VIDEO: New Trailer for SEX WITH STRANGERS at Westport Country Playhouse


"Sex with Strangers," a romantic drama about ambition and fame in the digital age, will be staged at Westport Country Playhouse, now through October 14. The play is written by Laura Eason, who is best known for four seasons as a writer/producer on the Netflix drama "House of Cards." Check out highlights from the show in the new trailer below!

"Sex with Strangers" is one of the most-produced plays in the U.S. in '15-'16 and '16-'17 seasons with more than 50 separate productions. The director is Katherine M. Carter. The play includes adult themes and language.

"'Sex with Strangers' is about the ways modern relationships are influenced by the internet," said Mark Lamos, Westport Country Playhouse artistic director. "It also entertainingly deals with the generational differences between a woman who falls for a younger man. She's a thirty-something author struggling with her second novel. He's a twenty-something blogger whose book about casual sex has rocketed to the top of the bestseller lists. Their mutual exploration of each other's needs and points of view makes for a funny, rueful, and up-to-date look at love, sex, and how different we find ourselves as we seek togetherness in a world that keeps changing every time we press 'send'."

The cast includes Chris Ghaffari as Ethan (Westport Country Playhouse's "What the Butler Saw"; Hartford Stage's "Romeo & Juliet"; Shakespeare in the Park's "King Lear"; MFA, Yale School of Drama; native of Greenwich, CT); and Jessica Love as Olivia (Broadway's "The Snow Geese," "The River"; Off-Broadway's "Aubergine," "The Rivals"; television's "The Blacklist," "Redemption"; training at Juilliard).

The design team includes Edward T. Morris, scenic design; Caitlin Cisek, costume design; Alan Edwards, lighting design; and Beth Lake, sound design.
