With the success of Big Love and documentaries like True Life and TLCs newest project, Sister Wives, polyamorous and polygamous relationships are a sure way to get ratings all aflutter. Call it a persons natural curiosity, call it that ever-prevalent strive for shock valuebut playwright Jesse Glick calls it the premise of his first full theatrical production. In Twisted Wine, characters Robert and Sherry are enjoying a happy, successful, carefree life togetheruntil their love-starved friend, Lisa, desperate for a union to call her own, expresses a desire to, well, make it a party of three. Boundaries are pushed and broken, social norms are obliteratedGlick definitely knows how to wrangle an audiences attention, or at least raise a few eyebrows.
