About the play: Indulge your inner voyeur and witness three short bedroom stories: a secret affair between the most unlikely people, two shattered lovers yearning to be whole, and a booty call that turns into so much more. Heat between the sheets turns into a psychological and emotional exploration of what happens when dreamers stop dreaming and start chasing. Arouse your mind and join us for an intimate look into relationships hidden from your eyes by bedroom walls.

Each piece is separate and runs around 20 minutes and will features two actors. This play contains adult content and offensive language. No nudity or sexual acts are involved. As an actor in this production, you’ll be part of a tight Fringe Festival team. Actors will receive a share of any profits made and there will be a few team dinners.
