At least three actors won’t have to imagine their audience naked if they get stage fright this weekend.
On Sunday, December 3, the long-running off-Broadway play Afterglow will invite brave audience members to undress like the show’s actors, Time Out New York reports.
Playwright and director S. Asher Gelman explores gay polyamory in his sensual drama about a married couple in an open relationship who begin sleeping with a massage therapist.
“When a new intimate connection begins to form, all three men must come to terms with their individual definitions of love, loyalty, and trust as futures are questioned, relationships are shaken, and commitments are challenged,” reads an official synopsis.
In other words, things get messy, so it’s a good thing there’s a working shower onstage.
Hosted by Go Naked, “an events and travel network for male-identifying adventurers looking to undress in social environments,” the 6pm special presentation features free clothes check, a private lobby space for nude mingling, and a nude post-show Q&A with the cast.
NewNowNext calls the show “stimulating” and its three stars “ballsy.”
Afterglow runs through January 14 at the Davenport Theatre in New York.
