Director's Statement

This project was inspired by the play “Anything For You” by award-winning playwright Cate Allen. In the original play, the two lead characters are women. With Cate’s blessing, I adapted the piece and changed the gender. The idea of two, “straight” men in seemingly happy marriages discussing the possibility of having an affair with each other gave the piece a heightened sense of danger that I wanted to explore. But I also saw this as a story about the emotional intimacy of male friendship. And this made the piece feel fresh and timely.

There are many stereotypes, valid or not, about how men and women approach intimacy and infidelity. When women cheat, there is an element of connection or love. Men are more likely to cheat to satisfy sexual urges, sex is sex. But in this story those lines are blurred and these conventions are pitted against each other.

The themes in Anything For You felt current. Sexuality has never been more fluid and this project was a way to explore those themes by confronting the alpha male mentality in a fun and compelling way. What starts out as an innocent lunch date becomes a meal of desires and secrets. But at its core, this is a piece focused on the complexities of male friendship and the limits and boundaries that test it.

Will their lust and love for each other win out or will they blow it all up? And once Pandora’s box is opened, can that box be closed? Anything For You is a story about the complexities of friendship and the limits and boundaries that test it.
