Permanence (Libby Brodie Productions) – 2017

Permanence (Libby Brodie Productions)
by Cyd Casados
directed by Hannah Price
July 20, 2017 – August 06, 2017
Produced and presented by Libby Brodie Productions
“The texture will always be there, underneath, no matter how many coats you put over it, but I like it that way.”
Rebecca loves sex – as does Steve. Inside Steve’s intimate, turpentine-scented studio their affair blossoms and implodes in a sensual, paint-laden battle of the sexes but at what point does self-expression become self-harm?
Sex, art and addiction clash in Permanence, a raw and provocative new play asking us if one can ever truly love if one is lying to oneself?
Recommended for ages 15+. Show contains strong language, full-frontal nudity, and adult themes.
