About PolySHAMory

A new solo play about his and hers. And hers. And his. And sex. And love. And therapy. Kate has everything she’s ever dreamed of. So does Kate’s husband’s girlfriend. With a poly-therapist and the sex-positive ethos of The Ethical Slut, she embarks on a riveting and wickedly funny sexcapade of exploration, self-discovery, and true love through a polyamorous relationship.
