STORY

A comedy about sex, drugs, violence, revenge and true love. When Rosie (a student), Tracey (a mother) and Penelope (a credit card maxed-out socialite) secretly sign on for telephone sex training, they don't expect to see their partners turn up at ‘Fifi's', also a massage parlour.

While Simon is innocently delivering extra hot Thai takeaways, Duane has left the missus and wants a spot of "hot stuff". Henry (an undercover detective) is staking out Rick, Fifi's accountant, who is at the centre of an unravelling drug deal, code name Hot Stuff.

 

First produced in Christchurch by the Riccarton Players in 2000, after it won the Aoraki Festival Play Writing Award in 1996, this is a fast-moving comedy with many disguises and surprises.
