Love and Sex in The Digital Age: A Play About Modern Intimacy

April 25 – 28
Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center

 

Love and Sex in The Digital Age, a powerful examination of relationships in the modern era, written by JayC Stoddard and Natalia Noble, and directed by Josh Patterson, will be playing a limited run at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center Studio Theater.

Love and Sex is an exploration of how instant connection has changed the way we communicate, and how much things have remained the same. First seen at the 2016, and 2017 GSL Fringe festivals respectively, Love and Sex combines two different plays, edited and rewritten to fit together into one night of tantalizing theater.

                “This has been a multi-year process. It wasn’t until after we had finished the second piece EXPOSURE, that I realized how thematically similar the two separate shows were,” said co-author JayC Stoddard.

Part 1, Round² examines the relationships of 4 different people, and the tragedy of their miscommunication. Part 2, Exposure – winner of the Audience Choice Award at the 2017 Great Salt Lake Fringe Festival- is a representational look at the various identities we assume when we have the safety of online anonymity.

“Natalia was instrumental in finding the voice that satisfies that theme. When constructing these two scripts it was her voice that filled my head, and her words that satisfied the poetry,” Stoddard continued.

Love and Sex in The Digital Age plays Thursday, April 25 through Sunday, April 28 at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center Studio Theater. Starring JayC Stoddard, Natalia Noble, Jillian Joy, and A.J. Neuschwander, and directed by Josh Patterson. Tickets are available through ArtTix at http://bit.ly/LoveAndSexPlay.
