THE STORY: Sex on Sunday explores how we deal with our desires, fetishes, taboos, and the world around us that may not understand. When Laila moves into a new place uptown, she has to work a little harder than most to fit in. Surrounded by conservative neighbors, Laila is trying her best to make new connections while keeping her business private – which becomes increasingly difficult when she starts dating a submissive, and the girls start nosing up in her business. Laila’s life becomes even more difficult when the husband of one of those neighbors becomes obsessed with Laila and blackmails her into offering him her service. Sex on Sunday masterfully challenges taboos on sex, race, relationships, and gender bias leaving everyone involved begging for more.
NOTE: Please be aware that this show is for mature audiences and has sexual themes and onstage sexuality.
