The Intimacy Effect
Title Point in conjunction with Propinquity presents The Intimacy Effect by Jeff Tabnick at Vital Joint, 109 Meserole Street, Brooklyn, NY, from September 28 through October 14, 2017 at 8pm. Performances: Thursday, Friday, Saturday at 8pm. Doors open at 7:30pm, and there is no late seating. Tickets are $20; RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In The Intimacy Effect, Matt Appel welcomes his brother and sister-in-law into his family’s small apartment. Over his wife’s objections, Matt tells them about the pregnant woman who showed up at their apartment the day before. This woman’s allegations have serious ramifications for them all. The play weaves in and out of thoughts and actions, the past, the present and the future to explore the porous border between one person and another.
