"pushes the boundaries in its interpretation… [is] consistently entertaining…significant…celebrates sexual freedom and expression" - Edge Chicago

An orgy of hilarious, powerful, and revealing explorations of gender roles, sexuality, kink, and relationships, all told through the bard's sexiest scenes… stripped down to 4 actors, 12 scenes and 23 roles. The only question is: How do you want it? Every night the audience picks which actor plays each role. The possibilities are endless, and every show is a salacious surprise. Grab your BFF, your F*ck Buddy, your Bae, your Swipe Right, and prepare to get your drink on!
