WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
After three sold-out, award-winning runs in international Fringe Festivals (NYC, Edinburgh, and Chicago), a critically acclaimed off-Broadway run, and a featured performance at the Last Frontier Theatre Conference in Valdez, Alaska, Valerie Hager's autobiographical solo play about her years stripping in the Alaskan frontier will open at Bootleg Theater. This is the first time Valerie will perform her story in the very city where her life as a stripper violently collapsed.
Naked In Alaska follows Valerie, a latchkey teenager with a meth addiction as she fights to break through into her own coming-of-age story. When her new start spirals out of control shortly after becoming sober, she runs to her childhood best friend Raven for help. An evening that begins at a strip club to make some easy cash turns into a 10-year career that tests the limits of friendship and her will to survive. Told with a rockin' '90s playlist, live pole dancing, and over a dozen characters.
