Love Potions
Three couples negotiate their way into intimacy, aided by tea, wine and chocolate. Love Potions has a pre-coital first half and a post-coital second, intercut with some naughty and very sexy verbatim revelations. More than a celebration of the nexus between sex and food, these clever, short plays are tender and passionate glimpses of human nature at its most vulnerable. Why do some people develop a sensuous relationship with their world and others remain indifferent to the subtleties of flavour, texture and taste?

Savage Grace
During his residency at an Australian hospital, Dr Tex Cladakis, an American HIV specialist, meets bioethics professor Robert Bavaro. They clash over ethical issues, but despite or perhaps because of this, a passionate sexual affair develops between them. As Cladakis considers assisting the suicide of one of his terminally ill patients, the moral ground shifts and the stakes escalate, threatening their personal beliefs and the trust and love that is growing between them.
