Off-Broadway’s The New Group has announced that it will present The Sensuality Party, a new play depicting college life by Justin Kuritzkes, on campuses throughout New York City. Directed by Danya Taymor, the production will play 18 performances only.
Kuritzkes’ play depicts 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 will be performed at Brooklyn College, LaGuardia Community College, Gallatin School (New York University), Baruch College, Lehman College, Pace University NYC Campus, Pace University Westchester Campus and the College of Staten Island. Performances will run April 25-May 13; casting will be announced at a later date.
