“Sexually and intellectually provocative … A HELL OF A LOT OF FUN!” —The Hollywood Reporter
This smart and sexy play encapsulates the divide between Gen-X and Gen-Y, two demographics separated by only a few short years, and an expansive gulf of technical predilections. When twenty-something sex blogger Ethan tracks down his idol, the gifted but obscure forty-ish novelist Olivia, he finds they each crave what the other possesses. As attraction turns to intimacy they inch closer to getting what they want, while also confronting the dark side of ambition and the trouble of reinventing oneself when the past is only a click away.
Has technology brought us closer together or made us virtual strangers?
