This new work explores power dynamics through BDSM and food and reveals how the people closest to us often have the most to hide. More…
An unlikely meeting between New York City neighbors fosters a new friendship among two couples, laden with secrets. After an incident in which everything is revealed, they must all come to grips with the pieces of themselves they keep most hidden.
See it if U want to see a play based on unique subject (BDSM) revelation of secrets with unexpected turn of events with a married couple &gay couple
Don't see it if Sexual content, lgbt, strong language, graphic & visual scenes are not your thing
Also What an incredible play. The opening scene not to be missed.
See it if Fast paced drama about a guy who keeps his BDSM desires secret from his wife; what happens when things blow up? Laughs, intense, superb.
Don't see it if If you'll be disappointed there's no full nudity as in the author's last show. Show runs 100 minutes no intermission.
See it if you are curious w/ lgbt vs straight relationship dynamics coupled w/ bdsm themes. The 2 couples & the lighting/flashback FX are impressive!
Don't see it if you are not interested or easily offended by above themes. It's tamer than "50 shades..." but wish there were more bdsm or sexy scenes, lol.
See it if You enjoy plays about tangled relationships and the way they play out. You are open to viewing some very graphic male bondage. Not for all !
Don't see it if It’s as I stated above very graphic. There is only one scene that it very hard to watch but the plot itself portrays some unusual situations
See it if you like to see dramas about non-traditional lifestyles. You are in the kink scene or want to learn more about it.
Don't see it if you are prude, ignorant, repressed, or don't want to see images of people getting whipped and flogged for fun.
See it if monogamy confuses you. Shows you communication makes a relationship works, even if you sleep around
Don't see it if you want to cling to 50 Shades of Grey type kink relationship.... aka abuse with a sprinkle of other.
See it if you're interested in a smart, respectful take on BDSM, queerness, & sexuality -- & the ways those can, but also sometimes don't, intersect.
Don't see it if you would be uncomfortable with frank discussions of sexual dynamics and with acted-out depictions even of non-sexualized BDSM.
See it if "Afterglow" writer-director uses money from that play to present a highly produced drama with less titillation. Nice set, effective music.
Don't see it if S&M is just one aspect of the relationships explored. Maybe Burke is so interesting as the effeminate nurse, partner of the pro dominator
See it if you liked AFTERGLOW, intrigued by mechanics of direction & staging, solid casting, great design, story not seen B4 = reasons 2 buy tickets
Don't see it if put off by BDSM or gay story element, need broad comedy, can't empathize with characters with issues, wonder why we just all cant get along
See it if you're interested in alternative characters and plot. No white picket fences here. The initial curiosity of BDSM fades to a good story.
Don't see it if BDSM/gay/trans characters and storylines are not your cup of tea.
See it if If you want to learn a bit about a subject rarely brought to the the theater. Intelligent and respectful of the subject matter.
Don't see it if Not interested in bondage themes. If you are looking for lurid depictions , its not here.
See it if you want to see two couples deal with friendship, secrets, relationships, sexual and non-sexual needs. BDSM exists and exposure multiplies!
Don't see it if you do not want exposure to BDSM practices or refrain from acting that portrays human humiliation.
See it if You're interested in the world of BDSM and not opposed to interracial, homosexual, or alternative relationships. I expected it to be racier,
Don't see it if But, it was pretty tame. There were some blocking issues, script a little unexpected, the interludes and its music felt awkward, even though
See it if Fantastic set design & entryways with an intriguing BDSM premise to hook you in. Rather mature and insightful approach on taboo topic
Don't see it if Not as raunchy as you’d might expect. 4 actors work really well together but feels like they’re not hitting their full potential.
