About Two Intimate - Off Broadway

Show Info


EDEN, by Eugene O'Brien and THE LOVER by Harold Pinter. A reflection of love, sex, and intimacy. Two Couples, Too Close, Too Far...Two Intimate, a reflection of love, sex, and intimacy.

Men will sit on one side of the house and women will sit on the other for Two Intimate, an evening of Eden by Eugene O'Brien and The Lover by Harold Pinter. The psychology of married couples toward infidelity will be on display and the seating plan will accentuate the differing perceptions. The plays will be acted by Dan Patrick Brady and Anna Emily Wood. Kathy Gail MacGowan directs.

Each play explores the psychological dance of marriage and intimacy. In Eden, Breda is wounded by Billy's neglect and any woman will identify with it, just as any man will identify with the temptation that Billy seeks as a means of escape from her. (So maybe it's a good thing that they won't be sitting together.) The Lover presents the more complex problem of a couple who cannot communicate, emotionally or sexually, outside their ritual game. The lasting impact of the twin plays will be to exhort couples to be honest with themselves.
