The play opens with Other (Elizabeth McNelis) grilling He (Jeff Kreisler) in an aggressively flirtatious way about which famous male celebrities he would theoretically have sex with and in what positions. Maybe it's not the most typical first date conversation, but this is not a typical first date. It's revealed soon after that He is married to Other's friend, She (played with subtle acerbic wit by Anne Teutschel.) Nonetheless, Other soon seduces He, and the rest of the play's 85 minutes is spent dealing with the fallout from that night.
At first, it's kind of refreshing to see such a deconstructionist take on sexual nature that focuses on primal urges. But, surprisingly for a play that talks so much about sex, it comes across as very cold. McNelis exudes Other's hyper-sexuality being trapped inside a frustrated lawyer, but the dialogue she's forced to speak betrays the truth of her character. Towards the middle of the play, she has a lengthy monologue that details her past adventures and desires, but they never feel like anything other than words.
The strongest scene comes when She confronts He about his affair and makes her husband recall it in graphic detail, leaving them both uncomfortably and surprisingly raw. It's the only time in the show when there seems to be a real momentum driving the dialogue -- and it also proves that there's a good play waiting to get out about these characters if Papa is willing to dig deeper and find it.
