Can a science control who you might fall in love with?  Brilliant biochemist, Marissa, has had a nasty break-up and decides that in order to prevent it from happening again, she’ll have to take matters into her own hands.  So, she develops a serum to block the oxytosin hormone in women (the hormone that supposedly causes the ‘love’ emotion) and she and her two roommates, go-go dancer, Lucas, and sex how-to writer, Robyn, test out the effects of the oxytosin-blocker.  Told through the structure of the scientific method, what follows is a struggle between heart and head, science and intuition, gender roles, and relationship rules.  Can Marissa find love on her own terms?


"Everyone falls in love and no one had much say in the matter, which is why it's such a delicious idea to think, hmm...what if I could control that?, stated playwright Merridith Allen.  “In Sex Curve, a multi-ethnic cast with varying sexual preferences deals with this question, which I believe evidences one of life's Universal, ironic and funny mysteries."
