Description

The time is 1981, shortly after the election of Ronald Reagan. The place is a sunny park bench at 72nd Street & Broadway, in New York City. The people are Mae (Ciel Bottomly), a madam, and her stable: Ursula (Pat Myers), Lillian (Ginny Spaven), Vera (Cynthia Robinson-Sherer) and Edna (Margie Ferguson). They are five “working girls” at the end of their very long and exhausting careers. The youngest is 72 years old. While waiting for appointments with their gentlemen, the women reminisce about their early days in New Orleans’ Storyville district — where, Mae says, “there was honor in the trade” — and argue about their options today. They are businesswomen whose clients are literally a dying breed. One of their customers has been kidnapped by his children. Another thinks it’s 1940 and has taken to paying with silk stockings. Others are in the hospital, and may not be coming out. For Mae’s stable, the financial situation is grave . . . and these girls aren’t getting any younger.
