Description

Gigi knows the limitations of her trade, while her young protege, Lola, looks for love in every man that comes her way. Lola's brother, Chickn, ekes out his own living while keeping an ever-watchful eye for Gigi's affections and Lola's safety. But love is not a luxury these girls can afford. Through story, song, and play, Gigi and Lola inspire each other to find joy on the edges of survival.

Editorial Reviews

"A strong production that's both brash and sensitive." —Jon Kaplan, NOW Magazine


"Dark, ponderous, and stirring, it's an impressionable storytelling vehicle that gets surprising mileage from a cast that holds on tight and simply doesn't let go." —Steve Berketo, TorontoStage.com


"...the considerable strength in the play lies in the gut-punch of its central premise and the humanizing of its inhuman implications...." —Jim Burke, Roverarts
