Synopsis

Theresa Rebeck’s Spike Heels is a provocative, razor sharp, comedy drama that explores the power play between the sexes, the American class system, feminism, sex, and the possibility of a four sided love triangle.

A lusty, street-smart, secretary from the Bronx, A fastidious University Professor, A prudish, upper crust rich girl, and a sleazy, aggressive criminal defence lawyer battle their way through the unintended consequences of their morally ambiguous choices in this contemporary take on the Pygmalion classic.
