Sin Street Social Club
This flirty, fun, feminist comedy is a bold new take on Aphra Behn’s restoration classic The Rover. Join Helen, a novice nun, and Florie Mae, her nightclub singing sister, as they take to the streets of 1916 New Orleans in a last-ditch effort to save their departed daddy’s dance club. The going may be rough, but the St. Claire sisters won’t let a host of dingy Storyville denizens—an overly-protective older brother, a rakish rover, and a disgruntled gangster’s moll—stand in their way as they discover their destinies and ultimately find love.
Premiered March 2019 at the Arvada Center as part of the Black Box Repertory Season.
