Dress Suits to Hire Returns

LaMaMa ETC presents a limited 3-Week Run
in Celebration of the 25th Anniversary of Split Britches:


In DRESS SUITS TO HIRE, 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. Created by Holly Hughes, Peggy Shaw and Lois Weaver, 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 one struggling against lesbian desires and her autonomous and abusive right hand. DRESS SUITS TO HIRE, which won OBIE Awards for both Shaw and Hughes (Shaw for her performance in the original 1987 production and a special citation for Hughes for the 1993 revival), is a mellifluous ode to lesbian eros and a joyful, literate send-up of all romantic fantasy.
