Into a world of seemingly complacent conformity, Professor Alfred Kinsey’s “Report on Human Sexuality” exploded onto the scene and sparked the sexual revolution. And Professor K, or “Prok,” as he was known, had as many secrets as the subjects he interviewed for his ground-breaking studies… In this fascinating memory play, Kinsey’s wife Clara recalls scenes from their lives: their first meeting, their wedding night, lovers, conflicts, and children. Kinsey emerges as a complex individual–a renowned scientist and outwardly conventional family man who also indulges darker private compulsions.
