Opened Wednesday, April 9, 2014

In a sweaty and sticky hotel room, a Western man and a young woman meet for sex. Somewhere between the reality and the fantasy, the sex becomes talk and the talk becomes dangerous. Nothing is off limits in this battle of morality, economics, and desire. Governor General Award winner Erin Shields shines a light on the complexities of sex tourism and our preconceptions about love.

Erin’s previous work includes If We Were Birds, produced by Tarragon in 2010, Montparnasse (Alberta Theatre Projects’ 2010 Enbridge playRites Award), The Unfortunate Misadventures of Masha Galinski and The Epic of Gilgamesh.
