Jan. 18, 19, 23, 24, 25, 26, 2019 ~ Durham Shoestring Performers

Durham Shoestring“The official charge is: Being … Consciously … Evil.”
As a corporate lawyer, Peter Maxwell helped rich, greedy and often corrupt men maintain their privileged status, but he’s had enough of enabling the 1%. Now as ‘Petie’, Maxwell reorients his life and career to attack the power and gender disparities that ruin life for many of his fellow citizens. Welcome once again to Walker’s dynamic political comedy of the east end, where marginalized women rally for renewal and challenge the insanity of the status quo with riotously funny, logically absurd tactics that always hit home.
2018-2019 the 45th Season performances at 8 pm
