“Don’t hate the game, don’t hate yourself.”

Keith Much is an ethical, savvy man who teaches a pragmatic dating and pick-up seminar. He coaches men through problems with body language, social cues, erotic performance, and communication in their relationships with women. Sudden online popularity floods his class with challenging students from the darker corners of the internet, leading him to do the ill-advised: Keith Much reads the comments. Safe and Sorry is the latest work from the creators of the Dora award winning Mr. Truth.

“a defiantly progressive work…As heartbreaking as it is sweet, sexy, and downright uncomfortable” – Mooney on Theatre (on Mr. Truth)
