Description

A satirical and controversial examination of the timeless quest for beauty – and its costs. An 18th century Chinese woman, a tightly-corseted Victorian lady, and a much-augmented Jersey gal meet in a modern day doctor’s office, each confronting the forces that led them there. This always-lively dark comedy is a wild ride through medical and sexual politics with a good dose of resilience and humor.

Written by Lisa Loomer

Directed by Kit Wilder and Lisa Mallette

Featuring Nichole Hamilton, Heidi Kobara, Lauri Smith, and D. Renee Willis with Larry Barrott, Dirk Leatherman, Wayne Lee, Derek McCaw and Ron Talbot.
