Quartet is a comedy set in the modern United Kingdom. Written by Ronald Harwood, the plot revolves around four opera singers making a fuss in a retirement home. Set in the U.S., Sex with Strangers is a 21st century drama written by Laura Eason that tells a riveting tale about two writers coping with intellectual property rights in the era of internet and social media that intersect with their desire for one another.
