Entering their 11th Season, the critically acclaimed Rising Sun Performance Company is thrilled to return to FRIGID for the third time, presenting the world premiere of "Stripper Lesbians". Stripper Lesbians, was developed within Rising Sun's new Resident Playwright and Laboratory Programs, and written specifically for and developed by RSP Ensemble Members.
The play features the talent of Joe Beaudin who received praise for his performances in RSP's hit productions of "The Last Supper" and 2011 FRIGID's Festival Hangover "Goodnight Lovin' Trail", along with Rising Sun new comers Amanda Berry & Samantha Cooper, whose electric onstage chemistry brings alive this funny and touching romp thru the down and dirty of Strip Clubs and the sometimes dirtier world of Grad school ambition.
Evan, a woman's studies major, is writing a killer senior thesis-- by becoming a stripper at her favorite strip club. In between her current girlfriend, a stripper-lesbian, and her ex boyfriend, an unemployed Tisch graduate, Evan dances the line between love and betrayal. A comedy about what it really means to be 'in love with a stripper' (cue R&B) and what it means to become one.
