Dress Suits to Hire
Dress Suits To Hire, which won OBIE Awards for both Shaw and Hughes, is a heady mixture of erotic fantasy and hard-boiled pulp drama. Two 'sisters' who live in a rental clothing shop use the merchandise to try on various facets of their personalities. Dress Suits To Hire is a haunting and hilarious look into a room where one woman embodies a dark and predatory sexuality while the other is struggling against lesbian desires and her autonomous and abusive right hand.
This fresh look at the show celebrates Split Britches’ 25th Anniversary and reunites Weaver and Shaw with the show's original creative team.
Presented by the Nuffield Theatre in collaboration with the Women’s Writing for Performance Symposium.
