Then you're on your own. Because me? I work in Christmastown. And this story starts just like they all do… with an elf.
The master storytellers behind 2011's hit The K of D, an urban legend return with this world premiere play about women behaving badly. In this pitch black comedy commissioned by Seattle Rep, Bette, Monica and Iris are high-end real estate agents whose sales pitches are as hard and polished as their nails. When Bette's reputation takes a hit, they are faced with a choice—band together to save the agency or fend for themselves. Playwright Schellhardt has crafted a neo-feminist satire that begs the question: is there more than one way for women to do business?
Sarah Ruhl, one of the most celebrated playwrights of her generation, paints a portrait of the remarkable 30-year friendship between two of the most honored American poets of the 20th century: Elizabeth Bishop and Robert Lowell.

Directed by Allison Narver (The Hound of the Baskervilles), this artfully woven story captures the beauty and power of language as two poets navigate the terrain of an ever-shifting world.

Together, they overcome many a rat, making their way through foreign lands, past pirates and back home to a good fortune and a better life.
