Hot 'n' Throbbing is a bold, unflinching examination of domestic violence, sexual politics and parenting. Written by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Paula Vogel (How I Learned to Drive), Hot 'n' Throbbing follows Charlene, a suburban single mother who writes pornographic feminist screenplays to support her hormonally charged teenagers. When her alcoholic ex-husband returns, the family's day takes a dark turn that will change them all forever. This savagely funny and potent exploration of adult themes will challenge you with tough questions about society's continued role in raising victims, bullies and abusers.
