It’s Just Sex



It’s Just Sex depicts the lives of three typical couples, each experiencing the trials and tribulations of married life, during one fateful evening. With the kids away at camp, they gather for a routine cocktail party. But as the liquor flows, party games are played in which secrets, truths and resentments are revealed, culminating in a surprising and wildly hilarious ‘partner swap’. The results are hysterically funny and captivating when the drunken escapade clarifies and the characters must confront the resulting effects on their lives and marriages, and views of honesty, monogamy and relationship.

The play succeeds wonderfully, delivering a lively evening of date-night entertainment that is raucously funny, provocative, insightful, moving and ultimately uplifting. Audiences universally relate to the situations in the play and see pieces of themselves in each of the characters and couples. The 7-character ensemble can be cast in variety of ways. With 1 stationary set and few props and furniture pieces, the full-length play is easy to cast and stage, and inexpensive-to-produce.
