About the Play:

Finalist for the 2011 Governor General's Literary Award for Drama

Gigi and Lola live by one motto: love for gas, gas for cash, cash for living, living for love. Living in Zimbabwe's depressed economy, both women live day-by-day, plying their trade with the truck drivers that stop at the border.

Gigi knows the limitations of her trade, while her young protege, Lola, looks for love in every man that comes her way. Lola's brother, Chickn, ekes out his own living while keeping an ever-watchful eye for Gigi's affections and Lola's safety. But love is not a luxury these girls can afford. Through story, song, and play, Gigi and Lola inspire each other to find joy on the edges of survival.

Cast: 2 women, 2 men

What people say:

"A strong production that's both brash and sensitive." - Jon Kaplan, NOW Magazine

"...the considerable strength in the play lies in the gut-punch of its central premise and the humanizing of its inhuman implications...." - Jim Burke, Roverarts
