The world’s oldest vice

. June 29, 2012.

Sex workers are often looked down on by society, but, many times they have a story of hardship and manipulation that is overlooked. The New Theatre Project is presenting the original play The Dance of the Seven Veils, in which three actresses portray a sex worker through different stages of her life. Inspired by Charles L. Mee’s Salome, members of the Project group interviewed area sex workers and have incorporated their words directly into the play. $15. 8pm. Special pay-what-you-can previews Feb. 9 and 10. Play runs Friday through Monday from Feb. 11-28. Performances at Pot & Box, in the former Ann Arbor Art Center’s building at 220 Felch St.
734-368-2130. www.newtheatreproject.org.
