Bedroom meets digital era in thoughtful comedy

Sex with Strangers at Burien Actors Theatre

Passion, ambition and the Internet become inextricably entangled in the thoughtful comedy Sex with Strangers at Burien Actors Theatre. Performances of this Washington State premiere, written by Laure Eason, run Feb. 10 through March 5.

The Burien Actors Theatre production features specialty drinks themed to the show and plenty of free on-site parking, plus an opening night party.


Olivia, an attractive and talented but underappreciated mid-career writer, is unexpectedly trapped in a secluded, snowed-in B&B with Ethan, an equally attractive and wildly successful young blogger. Her latest novel is an unsung masterpiece; his blog of his “sexcapades” is being made into a movie. She prefers books; he prefers eBooks. She is anonymous; he has half a million Twitter followers. Opposites soon attract – passionately – as each realizes they want more of what the other has. But the closer they get, the more they must confront the murky side of ambition, success and the digital era…
This show is suggested for ages 13-plus due to some adult content and language.
