The Studio Theatre Tierra del Sol opens season five with Theresa Rebeck’s hilarious play, Spike Heels. Pygmalion goes awry in 1990s Boston in this contemporary comedy of manners which explores the absurdity of a four sided love triangle. The combatants are Georgie, a sexy, volatile young woman in heels and three country club types: a writer, a lawyer, and a fiancée in sensible shoes. Georgie proves that sometimes poorly educated, street-smart people know a lot more about life than well-read intellectuals. This scandalous comedy examines the power dynamic between men and women, and reveals issues that are as important today as they were in 1990.
