According to Steppenwolf notes, "Ethan is a hot young writer whose online journals of 'sexcapades' are the buzz of the blogosphere. Olivia is an attractive 30-something whose own writing career is fizzling. They hook up, sex turns into dating and dating into something more complicated. Sex with Strangers explores how we invent our identity — online and off — and what happens when our private lives become public domain."
Here is a first look at the show, staged by Jessica Thebus:
