The Victory Theatre Center is proud to present the world premiere of The End of Sex (Or What’s Wrong With Mom) by Gay Walch, directed by Maria Gobetti. Opening April 26 in Burbank, this boundary-pushing new drama continues a streak of hard-hitting entertainment from the Victory Theatre.
It’s Nancy’s birthday. Her daughter and son-in-law come to take the parents out to celebrate. But when new desires and old frustrations collide over dinner, all four slide into a tense standoff as Nancy questions her own collusion with the sexual agreements and power dynamics within her own marriage.
Using cutting humor and venturing into tricky territory, The End of Sex (Or What’s Wrong With Mom) wrestles with how sexual behavior encourages and creates power arrangements – even in consensual relations.
Sara Botsford heads the cast with Tom Ormeny, Austin Highsmith (returning to the Victory after Resolving Hedda), Chad Coe (returning to the Victory after Resolving Hedda) and Lianna Liew.
