Spike Heels

“ A very talented quartet breathes compellingly organic life into a script which sometimes paints nuanced details with very broad strokes.”

“The production offers a realistic take on ego, infidelity and the roles of sex and power in and out of the workplace. It is complicated, and it gets intense.”

“It is a powerful play about men and women and how they wield their power over each other, forever an interesting and often contentious issue.”

Directed by JJ Gatesman

Pygmalion goes awry in this contemporary comedy of manners, which explores sexual harassment, misplaced amour, and the possibility of a four-sided love triangle. The combatants are a sexy, volatile young woman and three Back Bay types: a writer, a lawyer, and a fiancée in sensible shoes. The setting is Boston, the ending is happy, and laughter abounds.

“Stinging one liners.” N.Y. Daily News.

“Places a superior wryly pleasing … fashionable feminist spin on sexual shenanigans. Neatly written with smart funny lines.” N.Y. Post.

“Full of tart wit, feminist insight and quirky detours of plot.” Time.
