Sex With Strangers at the Hampstead Theatre
Emilia Fox stars in a new play at the Hampstead Theatre
Directed by Peter DuBois, this smart comedy is described as a "multifaceted love story packed with hidden ambitions, soaring desires and secret agendas."
"Olivia, an attractive and talented but underappreciated mid-career writer, is unexpectedly trapped overnight in a secluded, snowed-in B&B with Ethan, an equally attractive and wildly successful young blogger. Her latest novel is an unsung masterpiece; his blog is being made into a movie. She prefers books; he prefers eBooks. She is anonymous; he has half a million Twitter followers. But opposites soon attract – passionately – as each realise they want more of what the other has. But the closer they get, the more they must confront the murky side of ambition, success and Wi-Fi…"
