"All relationships begin in passion and end at the breakfast table," said Dorothy Parker. And here we have the surreal illustration of that dictum.
The Sadness of Sex is a truly extraordinary postmodern work of theatre, performance art, film, and stream-of-conscious monologue that traverses the hilarious and outrageous journey of a hopeless romantic (Barry Yourgrau, who also wrote it) riding the cycle of passion, romance, laughter and the seemingly inevitable, heart wrenching breakup. Interweaving dream logic with satire, melodrama, surrealism, and everyday reality, it dives headfirst into the craziness and contradictions of sexual relations between men and women, and the soulful search for understanding and love.
