Veronica sits with Ben in her recently deceased father’s house, surrounded by sexualised paintings, statues and ornaments. As far as Ben’s aware, he’s there to meet her brother, Gustav. Is now a good time to break up with her? If not now, when?
As the night progresses, Gustav turns up with his new fiancé and a plan. As the siblings unravel secrets of a dark past, their partners reveal secrets of their own.
Sex Object is a new Australian play about beauty and sex in an age of phones, porn and pretense.
