THE SESSIONS arouses the question: What’s going on in your bedroom?! Four couples expose themselves, body and soul, in this voyeuristic look at relationships. Watch what happens when the sex ends and the conversation begins.

This is a serio-comedic play about sex and relationships with adult content and language. All actors MUST be comfortable performing in very little clothing and simulating sex on stage.

Rehearsals will begin the week of Sunday, July 18th. Weeknight rehearsals will be scheduled between 7 & 11pm (3 hours), and weekend rehearsals will be scheduled between 12 & 4pm (3 hours). Each act (4 in total) will be rehearsed once each week, and then the entire play will be rehearsed once each week. Actors will only need to be available for two rehearsals each week, with the exception of one male actor who will appear in two acts, and MUST be available for three rehearsals each week. All actors MUST be available for all rehearsals the week before the show, the tech and dress rehearsals, and all performances.
