Just plain fun with a sliver of serious undertones; the ridiculous extent to which a woman would go to accentuate her figure a hundred years ago, is still ridiculous practice a hundred years later.
Skits & Giggles Theatre Co. in association with the all new Kalamazoo Craft Theatre Project, are pleased to present ‘Gay Deceivers’. Don’t miss this chance to explore the “history” of breast augmentation in a story where the deception is gay and gay deceivers abound. Set in the autumn of 1909, Tolly devises a plan to “supplement” her modest figure. When her first attempt proves a dismal failure, she continues, undaunted, to develop a practical system for bosom enhancement which she proudly describes as ‘Gay Deceivers’. This quaint little comedy is chock-full of tricks and traps and the mischief which results from good intentions.
Written by local playwright PS Lorio, Co-produced with Renae C. Feldpausch
