ENSEMBLE THEATRE CINCINNATI PRESENTS SEX AND EDUCATION, OCTOBER 15-27, 2019
Sharpen your pencils! Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati takes lousy language to school with the regional premiere of Sex and Education by Lissa Levin. This limited 2-week event is a spirited (and not-so-family-friendly) comedy about a duel between an overworked educator and an underachieving high school athlete.
Meet Joe Marks, a graduating basketball star whose college scholarship is suddenly in jeopardy when his poorly-written, sexually explicit note to his girlfriend is confiscated during a final exam. Meet Miss Edwards, his jaded public high school English teacher on her last day of teaching. With nothing to lose and resentment from years of disinterested students, she assigns him the task of turning the purloined letter into a polished, persuasive essay. This scintillating romp is a hilarious lesson for all in life, sex, sports, and grammar.
Performances run Tuesday through Sunday. Ticket prices start at $35 for adults; student tickets are $28; and children are $24. For more information and tickets, visit www.ensemblecincinnati.org.
