Roxanne is the manager of Tremendulo boutique, one of the most exclusive shoe shops in the world. Pippa aspires to be her protégé—helped only by her uncanny gift to intuit a customer’s shoe fantasies.
A dark, comic struggle for power, Quality: the Shoe Play explores wealth, the legacy women pass down to other women, and the relationship between commerce and art.
Bellingham TheatreWorks presents this taut black comedy by Vancouver playwright Elaine Avila, directed by Kayla Adams. Featuring actresses Brie Turoff Mueller and Jacki Campbell.
And what better place to produce a story about a shoe store than 12th Avenue Shoes in Fairhaven! Due to this intimate venue, seating is limited to twenty patrons, with the two actresses sometimes performing within inches of the audience.
Age recommendation: All ages.
“Elaine Avila’s subversive little black comedy (is) full of surprises…”
Edmonton Journal, Edmonton, Canada
“fashion, status, sex, even revenge…an art installation in itself.”
