The Francis Marion University Theatre’s winter production will be Paula Vogel’s The Oldest Profession.
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 find and learn new tricks as they fight to stay in the Life.
“Captures Ms. Vogel’s most essential gift as a playwright: an ability to find transfixing warmth and vitality in subjects often employed to titillate or repel…this venturesome dramatist provides a transforming theatrical wit, compassion and tolerance that keeps…theatregoers hooked.” —NY Times.
