Her tortured older sister, Diana, always occupied that space – even after taking her own lifeMoreTHOUGHTS WHILE HAVING SEX is the touching and funny story of Jennifer Ward, a 25-year-old aspiring playwright afraid to take center stage in her own life. Her tortured older sister, Diana, always occupied that space – even after taking her own life by suicide. Jennifer’s plays spring from a battle taking place in her mind as she struggles to come out from under Diana’s shadow. Her thoughts can be heartbreakingly sad or ridiculously comical as she tries to allow herself pleasure, whether this involves enjoying a dessert, trying to have an orgasm, or watching an actress speak lines that express forbidden feelings.Jennifer’s newest play tackles the love/hate relationship with her sister. When director Peter Heller offers to mount a small Off-Off production, she is both thrilled and terrified by the opportunity, not to mention their mutual attraction. While holding auditions, they agree on casting the dynamic and beautiful Kelly Cavanna as the older sister. Kelly is everything Jennifer saw in Diana but does not see in herself. Life imitates art as tangled emotions grow between writer, director and actress. The huge and sometimes hilarious challenges involved in a low-budget, off-off Broadway production lead to a surprising turn of events. Finally, Jennifer has to choose between the safety of watching from the wings and the danger of putting herself out there to get what she wants.
