BestiesBesties by Andrea Dunne

Besties Amy and Ruth are giving their farewell performance as a Burlesque duo before Ruth goes away to grad school in Onterrible and Amy stays put and “becomes a teacher or something.” It’s a night where it feels like anything is possible – whether that be teasing your relationship to the next level or letting loose the inner sex goddess you always knew (hoped) you could be. One way or another, by the end of the after-party everything is coming to a climax.

Produced by And/Or Productions
Featuring Susan Kelsey, Elizabeth Hicks, Darren Ivany, Brandon Hillier
Written and Directed by Andrea Dunne

Produced by Caveman Lovechild

Featuring Steve Maloney, Stu Simpson, Ray Critch and Cole Williams
Directed by Russell Cochrane
