SPIKE HEELS is a two-act play about Andrew, struggling writer and college professor, who takes in working-class Georgie as his "student" of the proper ways of modern middle-class society while simultaneously falling in love with her. Andrew's friend Edward, a hot-shot lawyer who took Georgie on as a secretary as a favor to Andrew, falls for her as well but in a more aggressively sexual way, ensnaring himself and Georgie in an incident of harassment and power play in the workplace. This untraditional love triangle makes room for a fourth with the entrance of Lydia, Edward's ex and Andrew's fiancée, and thus Georgie's foe...or maybe her ally? Lines are blurred in this intense dark comedy full of fast-paced dialogue rife with "stinging one liners" (N.Y. Daily News) and "tart wit" (Time). In the playwright's words, this is a retelling of "the Pygmalion story with contemporary, comic and sinister spin," exploring the complicated confusion of modern-day relationships and challenging the American sexual status-quo.
