The Oldest Profession is a rib-tickling comedy that examines a group of proud and feisty gals who, though over the hill, refuse to accept blue hair and handouts. While still practicing their trade (among customers themselves grown doddery) these characters deal with everything from shaky finances and shaky clients to old age, dignity, independence and death. Part of Carlton Trail Theatre Exchange.
