Finding love is an often daunting task that can leave any romantic bewildered and perplexed. And if you don’t believe me, check out the cast of Brad Fraser’s latest play, as they try to learn the meaning of love amid a world of sexual frustration, overwhelming fear of the unknown, and a rash of murders caused by a serial killer. Alright, maybe finding love isn’t that difficult for all of us, but it sure is for Fraser’s characters. Difficult, and with the addition of a serial killer, certainly interesting to say the least.
Fraser, a former writer/producer of Showtime’s Queer as Folk, takes a look at the lives of several sexually frustrated individuals in, Unidentified Human Remains and the True Nature of Love. This dark comedy is wrought with humor and suspense, and is told through the eyes of Benita â€“ a mysterious woman of the night with the ability to see the future. Pitfalls, heartbreak, and fear consume her friends who continue to ask: Does love exist? Who is the murderer? Will I be next?
The play is slated to open September 26 and run through October 18 at the Adrienne Theater in Center City. Adult ticket prices cost $20.00 Thursday evenings Saturday and Sunday matinees and $22.00 Friday and Saturday evenings. Tickets for students and senior citizens cost $18.00 for all performances.
