Retail Sluts

Clarence, Tony and Dommy work in a posh clothing store in New York's retail capital of SoHo. They're surrounded by fabulous people, drape themselves in the latest fashions, but they take home tiny pay checks and cannot numb themselves enough with drugs, alcohol, cheap sex and even cheaper fads. As 30 approaches fast, they must fact the dying dreams, face their greatest fears, and reckon with the various firebrands, zealots and sugar mommas who make up the women and men in their lives. All day long, they must ask customers, "Can I help you?" but these guys can barely help themselves. With the world collapsing around them, they must depend on each other to survive another weekend shift. It's the story of friendship, frocks and five dollars an hour self esteem.

"Marc Spitz is one of my favorite playwrights; I have been to at least half of his dozen plays, and I have never been disappointed. He knows how to shake people up; make them laugh, gasp and gag. Expect bad taste, bad language, snappy dialogue, theatrical surprises and maybe something that really grosses you out."
-Tom Murrin, Paper Magazine
