"Bradshaw has proved in play after play that he has a confident
vision of the theater that is his own. The politically incorrect
plots jump merrily from one outrage to another, never pausing to
explain motivation or linger on subtext. His dramas ask: What would
happen if every dark urge, lingering resentment and unedited ugly
insult that popped into your head came spilling out of your mouth?

Interracial couple Jerry and Pat borrow tools from their
recently widowed, white evangelical neighbor James, and they even
share the same Latino contractor, the mysterious Fred. Everything's
suburban bliss until James, after discovering his neighbors'
daughter Janet is a budding porn star, shuns the family. But what
James doesn't know is that his aspiring-filmmaker son Matthew has
other ideas. . . . An outrageous and revealing comedy about race,
sex, and familiarity, "Intimacy" is the newest work by playwright
Thomas Bradshaw and will premiere Off-Broadway with The New Group
