If there’s a theatrical award for cultural zeitgeist, Sex With Strangers has it clinched. It functions not only as a rousing commentary on the state of modern literature, but also on the digital personas that make navigating relationships and our perceptions of our identities so challenging. The play finds two writers snowbound at a rural retreat. One, Olivia, is a teacher steeped in literary tradition. She’s been published, but the experience was not what she had hoped. The other, Ethan, is a younger blogger who’s become famous for a collection of tawdry essays about his sexual exploits. The two hook up repeatedly, boosting Olivia’s personal and professional outlook. But she’s forced to examine the chasm between Ethan’s sensitive and sweet pillow talk and the outwardly misogynistic character he plays in his work. Stage West, 821/823 W. Vickery Blvd. in Fort Worth, heats up the stage with this steamy and thought-provoking production. Shows are at 7:30 p.m. Thursdays, 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 3 p.m. Sundays through July 23. Tickets are $17 at stagewest.org.
