My overall impression

“Sleeping Around” features some excellent performances, clever writing, and endearing characters. Its structure not only illuminates the play’s title, but mirrors the experience of life that is at the heart of the drama of the final scene. While the inherent conceit of the script’s structure (which I won’t reveal, because you should just go see it) breaks some traditional “rules,” the result is a satisfying slice of life which puts on display the interweaving of lives and the impact of those interactions — in addition to a character-driven deconstruction of (several of the) ways that sex and love interact for different types, different mindsets.

The play allows Theatre Unleashed to play to a couple of its incredible strengths, namely its variety of on-stage talent, and their propensity for short form theatre. This isn’t to say that TU can’t pull off a standard full-length play, because they have many times over, but Sleeping Around provides the best of both worlds by interconnecting its vignettes beautifully into an evocative whole.

Also, it’s really sexy.
