It's the most natural thing in the world. So why not talk about it? How much is hidden behind the curtains of modern society?
In this updated adaptation of Arthur Schnitzler's La Ronde, sex, relationships and love in today's society are looked at under a microscope. Honestly and openly, State of Affairs challenges the notion that we in the twenty-first century are any more comfortable with discussing our bedroom escapades than ever before.
In the late nineteenth-century, Schnitzler’s ground-breaking revelation into the sexual activities of Viennese society was deemed too outrageous for public performance. Outbreak Theatre present a radical, new adaptation that takes Schnitzler’s original and thrusts the play into modern day. Using a cast of four actors, this energetic production explores the humanity, diversity and deception of sexual relationships. Like the original, this new production adopts the play’s infamous daisy chain structure of sexual liaisons that encompasses the nation in its entirety, from the bottom to the top rung of the social ladder. Face your shame, embarrassment and desire head on with this exhilarating new production.
