Let’s Have Sex
The play talks and thinks only about sex. But the title is misleading !
The play is structured as a rondo — a scene between the Husband and the Wife leads to a scene between the Wife and the Professor, etc., each one introduced by the recurring theme: “Let’s have sex!”
But while its characters are driven by the most basic of human emotions — loneliness, their yearning for love, their desire to escape their problems — they poignantly and hilariously never get past discussing, arguing about their favourite subject. “The only way to come together quickly is sex,” says the Girl. “People can sit in the same office for a hundred years, meet each other at parties, drink together and go to picnics every weekend, but that won’t make them as close as a single night spent together!” But consummation — however devoutly desired — remains distressingly elusive, for reasons perhaps only the Sister knows.
Let’s Have Sex! is a comic and philosophical tour-de-force from Valentin Krasnogorov, a master of the Russian stage, performed with elements of Absurd theatre and surrealism.
