The Oldest Profession

Thomas Kugler
Performance Dates

In this bawdy comedy with musical interludes, five aging practitioners of the world's oldest profession are being forced out of the biz due to a diminishing clientele, increased competition for their niche market -- and aching joints. As yuppies and younger women threaten their tenuous hold on their turf, the close-knit madam and her employees reflect on their 50 years of friendship while trying to face an uncertain future with wit and compassion. This acclaimed comedy was written by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Paula Vogel (How I Learned to Drive) and appears at the Mead Theatre Lab/Flashpoint. Produced by the Rainbow Theatre Project. Directed by Elizabeth Pringle.
