  Mono/Poly at Odyssey Theatre Ensemble


Odyssey Theatre Ensemble
2055 S. Sepulveda Blvd Los Angeles

Two monogamous couples encounter a polyamorous triad at a costume party. The triad becomes entwined in the business and personal lives of the first two couples, forcing them to examine their long-held beliefs about love and marriage. Although sexually free, the members of the triad adhere to their own fairly rigid ethical code. Who’s moral now? Will the couples and the triad live happily ever after? Although the new sex comedy Mono/poly does not contain nudity, there are frank discussions of sexuality, straight and gay, with some suggestive depiction. This play is suggested for audiences 18 to Adult.

Broadway World - Recommended

"...Brian Reynolds' direction and the skill of his cast contributed greatly to the honesty of each actor's performance, which allowed each character to be presented and appreciated as a total package, not just a caricature of what you would expect them to be."

Hollywood Progressive - Somewhat Recommended

"...Surprisingly, despite its multi-culti cast, Mono/Poly never touches upon race. Rather than seeing the reason for this as being interracial sex is too sensitive a subject, I suspect it might be quite the opposite. That in 2019 urban USA, inter-ethnic mating and dating is common, if not passe. Indeed, all sorts of multi-cultural combinations are now regularly used to peddle products and services in TV commercials. That miscegenistic horse left the Guess Who's Coming to Dinner and Jungle Fever barn long ago."

NoHoArtsDistrict - Highly Recommended

"...I really had no idea what to expect from this play and was prepared to be a bit flushed at times, but the story is much more than the sex and the actors are really, truly excellent. They create a believable world for us to safely explore, one where no one gets hurt...unless they like a little pain that is."

Stage Raw - Highly Recommended

"...Those seeking an outlandish romp into sexual deviance should look elsewhere. This play serves best as an introduction to a conversation about what polyamory authentically looks like. On the night of the performance I attended, I heard audience exclamations ranging from, “That is CRAZY!” to “I don’t think I could ever do that,” and from “I think I would be this character” to actual conversations about how to approach challenging situations with a partner."

Accessibly Live Off-Line - Recommended

"...MONO/POLY is a very amusing and unique play that again, addresses a lifestyle that is practiced on a small scale. Having multiple partners between men, women, or a combination of both are not for all tastes. But for those that are curious, this play may show that one (wo)man's fantasy is another (wo)man's curse. After all, everybody loves a lover, no matter what equipment they may have on (and in) hand!"
