The Sporting Life

  • Written by Nick Jones and Rachel Shukert
  • Directed by Stephen Brackett
  • Produced by Studio 42 at the Vineyard Theater in 2010

The Year is 1910: the height of Luxurious Depravity in turn-of-the-century Chicago, and The Everleigh Club disappoints no man seeking a Mistress, with its buffet of Salaciously Offensive role-playing Sluts, unparalleled Circus of Glamour, trivia-spouting Magical Faggots, and all-you-can-eat Ice Cream. But the Club and its marvelous Madame are marked for Destruction by its historic Rival, the infamously feculent Vic Shaw, and her Socialist monkey boy, Clarence. A wickedly entertaining Courtesan-Room Drama, first presented by Studio 42 at the Vineyard Theater. Perverted Anarchists! Snivelling Prussians!! Educated Prostitutes!!! And a Good-Ol’-Fashioned Whodunnit?!!
