A play from an award-winning NYPD Blue writer comes to the Melville Theatre this September, evoking the themes of Pygmalion and My Fair Lady with a more intense approach for 2014. Spike Heels is written by Theresa Rebeck and directed by Trevor Dhu, and is a contemporary comedy of manners set in Boston that explores sexual harassment, misplaced amour and the possibility of a four-sided love triangle.

The play features a sexy, volatile young woman and her involvement with a university professor, lawyer and uppercrust rich girl in a battle of what the heart wants against physical attraction.

Rebeck has won the Writers Guild of America Award, Mystery Writers of America’s Edgar Award and Peabody Award for her work on the television show NYPD Blue, along with numerous theatre awards.

Please note: This play has sexual references and a strong language warning.
