“Damn I want you.”
Sam and Ash have never met, but they’ve been having sex every night. Kinky sex. The sort of sex that you pretend you’ve never heard of. Text messages that reveal dangerous fantasies. Selfies that crop out any distinguishing features.But one of them is a liar.
Birthed from real confessions of online deception, sex, and loneliness, talk dirty to me is an interrogation of the online people we pretend we could be, the pressures that leads us to create them, and what happens when we fall in love with a fantasy that isn’t real.
talk dirty to me is a new play created by Chris Brain and Casey Elder about the people we create online, and what happens when we can’t live up to them.
Inspired by their blog of anonymous online confessions (talkdirtytome2016.tumblr.com) as well as their own experiences with catfishing, Brain and Elder believe that the lies we tell online reveal more about our own desires and loneliness than we think.
