"Sophisticated examination of gender roles and sexual imperatives builds in momentum until it sucker-punches you with unexpected hilarity — and pathos....the play's treatment of what women want, from Stan's singular point of view, is actually deeply layered." - Los Angeles Times

About the Show

Written by David Landsberg
Directed by Susan Morgenstern

Opening Night is February 6at 8pm.

Surviving Sex tells the misadventures of Stan Cooper (Jeff Marlow), your average accountant with a not-your-average sex life. His quest for sexual understanding is thwarted by the cast of romantically-challenged characters in his life. Filled with eccentric encounters and lively liaisons, Stan's hilarious romp through the jungle of love shows us how different love and sex can really be. Life without romance may be a lot safer than surrendering to one's sexual needs…but certainly not funnier!
