The Mystery of Love & Sex 2017

Bathsheba Doran

Charlotte loves Jonny, but lately she’s been loving Claire. Jonny loves Charlotte, but lately he’s been having casual sex with men. Charlotte’s parents Lucinda and Howard try not to judge, but they just can’t help themselves.

From the writer of HBO's Boardwalk Empire and Showtime's Masters of Sex comes a tender and funny story about love in all its forms, and that blurry space between friendship, romance and erotic desire. The Mystery of Love and Sex is also about families; the family we are born into and the family we create.

It’s about our ability to keep secrets from family and even ourselves, and the challenges and rewards of finding your own path.

Darlinghurst Theatre Company produces and presents the Australian premiere of The Mystery of Love & Sex. With Deborah Galanos, Thuso Lekwape, Nicholas Papademetriou and Contessa Treffone.

Supported by Ian Barnett

"The Mystery of Love & Sex is something special; a tough but tender look at identity, love and family, so full of acceptance. The direction and acting in The Mystery of Love & Sex is as special as the play itself. Recommended." Jo Litson
