TICKETS: $30; $25 Seniors & Students


Island ETC (East-End Theatre Company) proudly rises from the flood waters of Harvey to present the national hit SEX WITH STRANGERS, the widely acclaimed comedy written by Laura Eason (“House of Cards”).  This provocative comedy opens on Friday, October 5th with performances continuing through Saturday, October 21st.  Original dates were pushed back due to damage incurred by Hurricane Harvey.  Apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused.

SEX WITH STRANGERS combines humor, insight and a modern version of the Faustian bargain – you can sell your soul but maintain the marketing rights!  Olivia (Laurel Powell) is an attractive and under-appreciated mid-career writer.  Ethan (Cameron Dunbar) is a hot young blogger whose online journals about his “sexcapades” with strangers have become the buzz of the blogosphere.  When these two become unexpectedly trapped in a secluded cabin during a winter storm, opposites attract.  The chemistry between the two is undeniable.  As their one-night stand turns into something more complicated and their literary futures become intimately intertwined, both writers confront who they are, what they really want, and how much they are willing to change to get it.

*Spoiler Alert – SEX WITH STRANGERS is not literally about sex with strangers.  However, due to subject matter and language, ETC does not recommend this production for children.

All performances will be at ETC, 2317 Mechanic in Galveston.  Performances are Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings at 8:00pm.  There will be one Sunday matinee at 2:30pm on OCT 15th.  Tickets are $30.00 for adults and $25.00 for students and senior citizens. 

All tickets may be purchased via our TICKETS page or by calling our box office at 409-762-3556.
