5m / Dark Comedy / Unit set After young couple Kevin and Blake engage in an adventurous and hastily planned night of group sex with the older, more "experienced" Max and Andy, they are left trying to salvage their relationship from a pummeling mix of jealousy, betrayal, telegrams from a soaking wet delivery boy and a ravenous sea monster from the ocean floor. This universal love story rendered through a post-modern gay lens slips from domestic comedy into a darkly fantastic fable examining the role and depth of commitment in relationships and what it really means to say the words "I love you." "A fiercely imaginative and finely tuned new voice...Smartly observed and blissfully performed...[Octopus'] tentacles tickle the funny bone, awake the mind and tug on the heart." - San Francisco Chronicle "An evening full of arresting images...classic tragedy seen through a very contemporary ironic lens" - Marin Independent Journal "This tale of two gay couples' group sex fling and its serious consequences arrives at a powerful statement about illness and love." -Variety
