Sexploits Scandals Secrets & Shams. High society never stooped so low!
Don’t miss Scena’s witty take on the battle of the sexes in this brazen, classic play with all-female cast. The timeless power struggle between guys and gals is set against the backdrop of 1930s Hollywood—when Tinsel Town was both American and British. See cads, scoundrels and vixens battle over who’s “in” and who’s “out”. Hilarity abounds in this “He said / She said” feminist take on Wilde’s dark comedy of manners. If you loved Scena’s hit, gender-bender, The Importance of Being Earnest, you’ll relish this play! This show is intended for a mature audience.
