About the play
August 22 - 30th
A fun, “free-loving” comedy exploring dreams, love, sex and our desperate search for connection in the midst of a pandemic. Dr. Stephanie Elba’s patients surprise her with a “group therapy” Zoom session. Will Else’s dreams of a polygamous cohabitation become a reality? Will Joe ever find love again? Will Stewart’s flock of church mice receive the spiritual nourishment they desire? Will Martan discover the deep, sacred connection he craves? And when exactly was the last time Dr. Elba got laid...
Dreaming of Sexual Healing Sort Of... is a virtual theatre experience produced, recorded and performed live from within the world of Zoom. A fun, quirky, voyeuristic, socially distancing adventure to enjoy from the comfort of your living room!
