Genre: Drama, Lesbian+Gay
JMPII, Patricia R. Floyd

This is my first time doing this...........
I've NEVER paid anyone for sex before.........

WHORING IS HARD WORK. And now the competition is about to get stiffer with the influx of the newly jobless. Whore Works takes a sharp, witty, balls-out look at a black male hooker’s day-to-night struggle with hating and sometimes loving men who are paying him to, well.........you know.

A young hooker (Juan Michael Porter II) services
several different tricks (Bryan Webster) in this
provocative new play in which two black actors
wrestle with the question: Isn't Money Love?
