American Theatre Critics Association Award Winner
!“A bold, risky melange … terrifically moving!” —New York Times


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
