Off-Broadway’s The New Group presents The Sensuality Party beginning April 25; Justin Kuritzkes' new play depicts college life and is being staged in campuses throughout New York City. Directed by Danya Taymor, the production is playing through May 13.
The Sensuality Party features Catherine Combs (Gloria), Jeff Cuttler (High), Katherine Folk-Sullivan (These Seven Sicknesses ), Jake Horowitz (King Lear, TFANA), Layla Khoshnoudi (Men on Boats) and Rowan Vickers (Bad Jews). The production has costume design by Beth Goldenberg.
Kuritzkes’ play follows six college students, three women and three men, who reflect on an incident of group sex they shared during their first semester. “What began as a rather casual experiment went suddenly and horribly wrong,” state press notes. “As they internalize and even fetishize this event, they battle their own disaffection and disconnection from the wider world.”
The Sensuality Party is being performed at Pace University NYC Campus, Pace University Westchester Campus, Brooklyn College, LaGuardia Community College, Gallatin School (New York University), Baruch College, Lehman College, College of Staten Island, Stella Adler Studio of Acting, LaGuardia Community College and Baruch College.
