“Powerfully smart... powerfully sexy.” - THE NEW YORK TIMES

In the fast-paced, cut-throat world of sports agents, Liz is not letting anyone discount her skill — and most certainly not because of her race or her sex. But when a volatile young client steps way out of line, “King Liz” may finally have met her match. Now through July 16th, The Playhouse presents the Chicago premiere of this wise-cracking portrait of a woman in a man’s world.

“Witty observations on the emotional damage inflicted by neurotic people in the name of love…” – VARIETY

When Suzanna sets up her best friend with her husband’s co-worker, she thinks she’s making a kind gesture. But when mixing a brutally honest businessman with an emotionally-fragile college dropout, the results can be explosive. Called “engrossing as it is ferociously funny” by the New York Times, this dark comedy explores what we really owe one another… from old friends to virtual strangers.
