“Why does any guy have sex with strangers? Cause it feels fan-fuckin’-tastic. That’s it. End of story.”

The Australian premiere of a sharp, provocative and very funny play dealing with a chain of hook-ups amongst a group of gay men.

American writer Joe DiPietro has loosely adapted La Ronde, Arthur Schnitzler’s notorious 19th century satire about sexual adventuring, and turned it into a revealing panorama of contemporary gay life.

Take ten guys: The Escort, The Soldier, The Tutor, The Uni Student, The Married Guy (and his partner), The Porn Star, The Playwright, The Actor and The Journalist, put them into a series of one-on-one encounters, and the result is a very sexy, confronting and thought-provoking comedy of gay sexual manners.

Like good sex, each moment leaves you wanting more. But underneath the hot man-on-man action is an ironic and truthful look at the conflict many gay men experience between the desire for monogamous love and the thrill of sexual freedom.
