The Duchess & the Stripper

ensemble theatre · david bosley · Ages 18+ · United States of America

includes nudity world premiere

It’s 1961 and the Duchess of Windsor, Wallis Simpson, (you know, the one blamed for nearly bringing down the British monarchy,) has returned to her hometown of Baltimore for reasons unknown. Tired of the A-list party she’s attending, she decides to visit Baltimore’s Adult entertainment district, The Block, with the intention of meeting the leading burlesque performer of her time, Blaze Starr.

Blaze is infamous in her own right, having had quite the torrid affair with the Governor of Louisiana, Earl Long.

With seemingly little in common beyond home wrecking, at the end of this night, these ladies with the help of one another, will choose their forward paths, as their stars begin their inevitable fade.
