Gotham Stage Company produces the sexually charged drama at The Players Theatre at 115 MacDougal at Minetta. Hayley Finn (Kate Crackernuts) directs.
In the drama, according to the not-for-profit troupe, "Lilah, desperate to reconnect with true love, believes she has found it in a chance sexual encounter with Brock, a man half her age. Brock's mother, Susan Thomas, a senator from New York, is determined not to let a family scandal derail her bid for president, but Lilah's seduction knows no bounds as the personal and political collide in this intense sexual drama."
Donna Mitchell, Elizabeth Norment and Jed Orlemann are featured as Senator, Seductress and Son, respectively. The official opening is May 31.
