“A smart, adult, bittersweet look at three men who find themselves in an off-kilter love
triangle…a complex web of compromise, integrity and sex.” Martin Denton, NY Theater Now
Monty and Luis have had a happy romantic partnership for ten years. A chance encounter with Stefan, a sexy, mysterious waiter, disrupts their cozy lives: both Monty and Luis have a secret connection to him. Monty comes from a happy Italian family; Luis was raised over a bar by his shady Grandma. Stefan has trouble pinning down exactly where he came from though parts of his past are on display all over the internet. The three men’s lives intertwine in a number of surprising, romantic and potentially devastating ways. No Strings Attached stars Casey Burden as Monty, Afrim Gjonbalaj as Luis and Kevin Perez as Stefan and is directed by Robert Teague.
“There are so many hot men in New York and I want to f—k all of them. If I can’t I would at least like a representative sampling.”
No Strings Attached (originally titled NSA) premiered at the Stage Left’s Left Out Festival in April with two sold-out performances. NY Theater Now, said: “Three highly individual, richly fleshed-out characters. They behave like real people rather than constructs or archetypes. It’s a real privilege to spend time with them…indulging along with them in their fantasies and foibles. We care for them when our time with them is over.”
Igrejas’ previous plays include Shrinkage, Kitty and Lina, Miss Mary Dugan, Hassan and Sylvia (both won Fresh Fruit Festival Best Play Awards), Margarita and Max (winner Best Short Play, Midtown Festival).
