Based on the hit play “Orgasmo e Pregiudizio” (Orgasms and Prejudice) by Fiona Bettanini and Diego Ruiz), celebrating in 2020 its 20th anniversary on stage, the show is a poignant, bittersweet comedy on relationships, loneliness and ageing. A pair of highly incompatible work colleagues are forced by circumstances to share a bed for a night at in sleazy motel, while sounds of love-making in the adjacent rooms makes conversation a challenge.
