What It's About

Bondage is a one-act play that questions racial and sexual stereotypes. In an LA sex parlor, a dominatrix and her client wear masks and fetish-wear which hide their ethnicities and allows them to play out fantasies based on racial stereotypes and sexual mythologies.

“Exchanging biting social observations with stinging humor, they progress through their power games to expose the arbitrariness of racially minded thinking. All the while, however, they are haunted by an awareness that in spite of their efforts, they may be moving towards the most terrifying reality of all – a true intimacy which transcends the bounds of race.”
