Brought to life in common rooms and student unions at college campuses across all five boroughs of New York City, 'The Sensuality Party' depicts six college students–three women and three men–who reflect on an afternoon of group sex they shared during their first semester, and how what began as a rather casual experiment went suddenly and horribly wrong. As they internalize and even fetishize this event, they battle their own disaffection and disconnection from the wider world. Playwright Justin Kuritzkes offers an incisive look at his own post-9/11 generation’s consciousness.
