About This Show

As Ronald Reagan enters the White House, five aging practitioners of The Oldest Profession are faced with a diminishing clientele, increased competition for their niche market, and aching joints. With wit, compassion, and humor, they struggle to fight to stay in ‘The Life’ as a new dawn begins in America. In six succinct scenes set over the next five years, Pulitzer Prize winner Paula Vogel perfectly captures the great dignity and small dramas of these women living on the fringe of a prosperous society.
