Nudity is different on the stage. First of all, I must say there is no sex in this play. (Thank heaven). It’s talked about and joked about and anguished about…. but when so much flesh is seen – it would be too much to do it. The first act where most of the nudity is…. is very funny. The threesome does not happen… (thank heaven)  It works because most of the players are very uncomfortable, as is the audience. It really isn’t prurient.

This play is about the ravishing and raping of Arab women to a degree and I think the message could have been a little more convincing and maybe more strong. I don’t understand why she even ever thinks she wants a threesome. Maybe I missed some of the point.
