Bradshaw's dialogue, a curious alloy of sketch-comedy deadpan and unfiltered tastelessness with flashes of poetic honesty, occupies a neatly plotted structure: the neighborhood comedy-drama.


Why See Intimacy?

A respectable American town is thrown into the deep end when a neighborhood pornography film turns relations sour. Centring on three families, the play explores what happens behind closed doors and between the sheets when issues of race, sex and what is acceptable collide.

The play is described offensive and outrageous by some and an intense examination of our era's obsession with sex and pornography by others. With scenes of masturbation, oral sex, and plenty of nudity it's certainly not for the fainthearted.

Intimacy is directed by Scott Elliott and written by Thomas Bradshaw.
