Five Times in One Night by Chiara Atik

THE STORY: In this comedic quintet, five couples explore the delights and disappointments of their sex lives. Whether they are the first two people on Earth or the last two, modern partners with shifting needs, exes on the eve of a life-altering event, or twelfth-century pen pals, following those most natural desires uncovers truths about their humanity. Altogether, FIVE TIMES IN ONE NIGHT is a hilarious examination of intimacy through the ages.

“…a lewd title and a tender heart…specific and universal, mirthful and agonizing.” —NY Times. “[FIVE TIMES IN ONE NIGHT] is one of the most highbrow sex comedies I’ve seen. It’s smartly and tightly written…While FIVE TIMES IN ONE NIGHT covers a broad swath of history, it’s a strikingly contemporary play.” —CurtainUp.com. “…Atik’s five self-contained shorts add up to a heartfelt, whimsical look at the reasons we pursue sex and the means we employ in order to have it…this delightful night of one-acts explores the motives and consequences behind the world’s simultaneously most revered and most stigmatized pastime.” —TheaterScene.net.
