Synopsis

The play tells the story of the underpaid, yet independent, Charlene. Her vivacious friend Judy persuades Charlene to join her in the dubious career of stripper and go-go dancer. Very soon Charlene is making lots of money, and has a strangely earnt self respect. This in turn will give her the strength to become reconciled with her family.
