Set in the late 1970s, this hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought provoking and even a little romantic.

Pushed to boiling point, three female co-workers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. In an hilarious turn of events Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy – giving their boss the boot!

Music and lyrics by Dolly Parton book by Patricia Resnick
Originally produced on Broadway by Robert Greenblatt in April 2009
