The Edge Theater
It’s Just Sex
by Jeff Gould
directed by Bill Smith
Auditions will be held for “It’s Just Sex” on Saturday, March 17 and
Sunday, March 18 from 12:00pm -3:00pm both days. This thought
provoking comedy is the story of three married couples who get together
for drinks and laughs. With the kids away, the liquor flows and secrets
are revealed, trust is tested and boundaries are broken. Swinging becomes
the game and everyone partakes!
“It’s Just Sex” is a comedic and thought-provoking look at fidelity, lust,
communication, and what it really takes for a marriage to survive and thrive.
By the end of the evening, what should have been just an innocent party
turns into an event that changes all three relationships forever.
To prepare, have a short comedic monologue, under two minutes.
Also, be prepared to read from the script. Sides will be made available
to you upon making the appointment. We will be scheduling auditioners
every ten minutes, but you should plan on staying for approximately one hour.
