Genre: Comedy
by Joan Holden, directed by David Dalton

The play features the character of Barbara Ehrenreich, a journalist who is given an assignment to try to live as a woman working minimum wage jobs for a month. Barbara tackles the job, traveling to three different cities to find housing and employment – as a nursing home worker, waitress, housecleaner, and store employee. NICKEL AND DIMED asks – can a middle-aged, middle-class white woman make it on minimum wage in middle America?
