Intimacy Tickets

Thomas Bradshaw returns to the live stage in yet another Off-Broadway production which is going to define sensuality and “intimacy”. The story of Intimacy revolves around three families belonging to the same neighborhood of a respectable American town. This dark comedy play deals with the everyday issues of sex and race, and how they entwine and cause conflicts behind the walls and between the sheets – and even in front of the camera. A revealing and boisterous play of colliding intimacy and race, this new Bradshaw production is something that you shouldn’t miss if you enjoyed his previous writings, “Burning” and “Purity”. Intimacy tickets are now on sale.

Thomas Bradshaw

Earning the Title of Intimacy

Intimacy, the new explicitly funny play by Thomas Bradshaw has received mixed reviews – for some it is a comedy mixed with sensuality: a perfect treat, while for others it is something that makes them evacuate their seats midway. Labeled as “audacious sexy comedy” which has no boundaries, Intimacy tells the story of three families living in the suburban area of America. There is the widower, James, who is still grieving, and his son Matthew, a teenager who is an aspiring filmmaker. Right next door lives a contractor named Fred, whose complicated sexual history follows him everywhere. He is living with his daughter named Sarah, who is a straight-A high school student. She is teaching Matthew, the horny teenage neighbor the art of frottage. Next door to them lives the couple, Jerry and Pat, who are both Ph.D.s. Both are racists and have a daughter, who is barely of the legal age; however they find out later that she is a budding porn star. Matthew, the aspiring filmmaker decides to make a neighborhood porno and without giving much away, he puts each and every character in his movie, even his very own father. Like he tries to communicate with his viewers in every play he writes, Thomas Bradshaw has done it again. In intimacy, he tries to tell the public how life is strangely messed up and hypocritically sad yet happy, and how intimacy is to be expected from a place you never searched at.

Thomas Bradshaw – The Playwright

Eliciting disgust from some viewers and belly laughs from the others, Thomas Bradshaw’s plays have always been in the limelight. Bradshaw doesn’t cease to shock his audiences with his extremely simple yet shocking thoughts about everyday life scenarios. His dialogues are a curious combination of poetic honesty and unfiltered reality. However, his plays despite being messy, have a neatly played out plot and structure. Although Intimacy has this unavoidable omnipresence of explicitly, which can be called porn, there is also a story line that can give a nudge to your thoughts. Explore this whole new dimension of X-rated entertainment with Intimacy this February at Acorn Theatre.
