Full Length
Dramatic Comedy

2m, 4f

Ty Greene is a normal guy with three very big
problems. In an unprecedented (for him) run of promiscuity, Ty has
managed to impregnate three women in the span of one week: His
ex-girlfriend, his 40-something married next-door neighbor, and his 18
year-old student. In this edgy comedy by playwright Rajiv Joseph, Ty's
problems illuminate every triumph and failure of his life, and as the
women in his world converge and figure out what's happened, Ty realizes
that his life is adrift, and that he only has a limited time to try to
piece it back together. All This Intimacy, which according to The New York Times has "a certain can't-look-away pull," is a comedy about friendship and lust and how the two don't mix.
