Comedy / 5m, 9f / The comic sensation of the 1991 Humana Festival at the Actors Theatre of Louisville, this play by the author of Talking With and numerous hits is a brilliant portrayal of America's fascination with fantasy entertainment. In a locker room in a seedy arena in Tennessee, the scurvy bunch of professional lady wrestlers includes Tiger who has a drinking problem and a small dog; Dani who displays a chip on her shoulder against the promoter who owes the girls several weeks' pay; Lessa, an Olympic shot putter with delusions of being a pro athlete and Netty, an overweight older woman who appears in the ring as "Pajama Mama." The eager beaver go fer Nola and the Knockout Sisters, refugees from the Big Time banned for drug and other abuses, complete the roster for tonight's main attraction. Sparks fly when the other women find out about them.
