ABOUT THE SHOW:
The morning after an exotic dancer and local Scrabble champion goes missing, Graceland Ducharme heads off to work at the Tumbler Ridge Dump and leaves her agoraphobic twin, Sugar, at home alone. Sugar finds herself in a desperate position when she receives a surprise visit from a fishy stranger named Trout Stanley. Exquisite Corps Theatre presents the Boston premiere of Claudia Dey’s Dora award-nominated dramedy this September at the Factory Theatre.
Find out what happens when Trout Stanley jimmies the lock on Boston.
