Passion, ambition and the Internet become inextricably entangled in the thoughtful comedy ‘Sex with Strangers,’ opening at Burien Actors Theatre this Friday, Feb. 10, and continuing through March 5. Written by Laura Eason, this is the comedy’s Washington State premiere. Here’s the synopsis:

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.
The Burien Actors Theatre production also features specialty drinks themed to the show and plenty of free on-site parking, plus an opening night party. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. at Burien Actors Theatre, 14501 4th Ave SW in Burien. Ticket prices range from $7 to $20. Student tickets are just $10.

  1. BAT has a new sponsor, Pickled and Preserved, who, among other things ,will be supplying coffee for concessions.
    Burien Press is providing gift cards for a nightly drawing!
    And as a very special treat at the free opening night party, Medzo Gelato Bar & Travel Cafe will be sharing some of their very wonderful gelato with those who stay for the party!
    See you at the show!

  2. Saw the show opening night. It’s a two person performance that keeps your attention all the way. The male lead is good. The female is fantastic. Together they make for an excellent evening of theater. The language can be frank, at times, but it’s in character and appropriate to the dialogue.
