Renowned Malibu restaurateur Max Madison finds himself entangled in a haunting love triangle with his devoted wife and the diabolical mistress. The betrayal and suspense will have you on the edge of your seat when Climax, Lisa Phillips Visca's chilling portrait of love and twisted passion, returns to the Santa Monica Playhouse. After years of unsuccessful attempts and countless fertility treatments, his wife's ever-growing compulsion for motherhood throws Max into the arms of another woman, a modern-day femme fatale who seeks revenge on the baby and their 21-year-old son. A black widow relentlessly weaving her web, she traps whomever she wants with sensuality, manipulation, a needle pressed to a vein, or a gun flush against a forehead. This "emotionally raunchy romp has no boundaries," according to The Tolucan Times, and now you can see what the fuss is all about.
