When a whip-smart, agoraphobic online music critic, an economist dabbling in social liberalisms, an auctioneer, and a pianist engaging in pharmaceutical testing are thrown in the grinder of illicit drugs, categorized records, pop lexicons, gender assumptions and handmade vodka, a happening of uncommon pretense emerges. The by-product? Questions. What does nerve repackaging entail? What is a sexuality chart? How effective are synthetic hormones? What does the inside feel like?
Sex Party is a tour-de-force of subtlety, a desolate blackness dancing off-beat on the carnal merriment of big city characters in their big city lives.
As the second offering of its 2013 season The Overtime is proud to present Noah Finn’s Sex Party. Directed by Edward Wise of Mise Media this show continues the Overtime’s mission of presenting locally written shows to San Antonio audiences. And this one….well, it promises to be quite a presentation indeed…

About the Overtime Theater
In business since 2007, the Overtime Theater is dedicated to providing innovative and accessible entertainment at an affordable price. The shows are all new, original works, or unconventional adaptations of old classics. The Overtime Theater specializes in world premieres of works never before seen on stage!
In just five years, the Overtime has produced over 50 new shows, including six original musicals: Sheer Bloody Lunacy!, Pirates Vs. Ninjas, The Brain That Wouldn’t Die: A New Musical, Dr. “S” Battles the Sex-Crazed Reefer Zombies: The Movie: The Musical, DOA: A Noir Musical and Open Sesame!. Other notable productions have included The Good Samaritan, Poet Faustus, Sob! Choke…LOVE!, Action Philosophers, and most recently, the world premieres in 2011-2012 of All Good Things, The Decorator, Ugly People, Frames, Life or A Reasonable Approximation Thereof, Sleepers Wake, A Hitman’s Guide to Surviving Life, and Gregg Barrios’ I-DJ. The Overtime Theater also collaborates with local visual artists, giving them a prominent local space in which to display their works in the lobby of their location near the Pearl Brewery complex.
The Overtime Theater is now a non-profit organization as determined by the IRS. This decision has been made to extend the Overtime’s mission of “art for the people” to the greater community, including through low-cost workshops in acting, playwriting, comedy improv skills, and art by working professionals.
The OT Board of Directors and Operational Directors offer their expertise and talents as volunteers, and actors and the production crew are paid stipends through audience donations and grant funds. Our ticket prices are among the most competitive in the city, as we try to keep the costs down and the entertainment as accessible as possible. We are committed to building an audience with an appreciation for new, outside-the-box productions — an audience that will also support other local theaters and arts organizations.
The Overtime Theater Board of Directors and Operational Directors for 2012 are listed above. All serve in these roles as volunteers.
