Incredible Sex

three comic tales of love and lust
by Rich Orloff

Cast: 3+ W, 3+ M – all in their twenties

INCREDIBLE SEX is lively, touching and sensitive, a humorous trio of one-act comedies that focus on far more than what the title implies. You may never  think of sex the same way again.”
      – Show Business Weekly

“Incredibly funny. Many one-liners and wacky, unpredictable plots. All three one-acts proved to be amusing and enjoyable, causing the audience to laugh out loud fairly frequently. A good time for all.”
      – Off-Off-Broadway Review

“wonderfully funny”
      – River Cities Reader (Clinton, Iowa)
