|Love by the Hour|
Ashish has just found out that his long-term friend Eve is a sex worker. When he impulsively books them for sex, the pair are thrown into close quarters and forced to confront their shared past, while questioning the boundaries of friendship, the limits of intimacy, and the cost of transgression.
Their conversation strips them to their most vulnerable, examining their fears and fantasies with dramatic insight and sharp humour. This modern and queer telling of the courtesan love story will make you hold your breath, laugh out loud, and question your sexual ethics.
From the writer of 2019 Midsumma Festival hit 'The Rest Is Drag' and 2016's 'The Adulteresses' (★★★★ - The Age) comes this new tale of sex and friendship, inspired by Colette, Noel Coward, and Oscar Wilde.
