Stanford campus
 
Sick and tired of watching their clients screw the economy over (and over), the working-girls of Wall Street have hatched a cunning plan -- to infiltrate the power patriarchy of Oldman Sachs Inc., and teach its bumbling One-Percenters how to spread the wealth.  Armed with song, dance, and some very comic phalluses, Fellatia and her chorus-line of call girls are ready to do some serious occupying. But will the suits see through their disguises? And is America really ready for their radical reforms?
 
In this original adaptation of Aristophanes’ Assembly Women, we're bringing ancient comedy back to life with a modernized twist on an age-old story of sex, money, and power. Come join the movement!
