Come on a surprising journey with three families in a well-manicured, multi-racial American town. When secrets and sexual desires suddenly explode, pleasant neighborly relations take some shocking and transformative turns. Following his recent premieres Burning (The New Group, 2011) and Job, Thomas Bradshaw is back with a boisterous and revealing comedy about race, sex and Intimacy. Directed by Scott Elliott, Intimacy explicitly explores on stage what goes on behind closed doors, between the sheets, and sometimes even...in front of the camera.
