Event Description

Written by and starring Rosie Bitts
Directed and Dramaturge by Suzanne Bachner
Musical Accompaniment by Andrew Slade

Enjoy the Show and then stay for a talk back afterwards with Miss Rosie Bitts and representatives from PEERS

The Fabulous Miss Rosie Bitts mixes jazz and burlesque with raw seduction in these heart-breaking, hilarious and taboo tales of sex work, unplanned pregnancy, loss of virginity and more. With live accompaniment Rosie creates a night of entertainment that is a luscious pleasure to the senses while also being subtly subversive, perfectly frank and completely titillating.

Part of the mandate of this show is to raise awareness for sex workers' rights and to connect with local organizations that support sex workers.
We are so lucky to have PEERS here in Victoria. PEERS is an organization that provides outreach and care and wellness programs for local sex workers. Rosie spent the fall touring this show across the United States, in all her travels she couldn't find another organization like it.

Join us for a night of entertainment and learn more about what PEERS provides for our community with all profits going to PEERS.

Sponsored by Intrepid Theatre, Metropol, Les Ames

PEERS Victoria is an innovative, multi-service grassroots agency that was established by, with, and for sex workers in 1995. Through direct service delivery and community partnerships, PEERS provides an array of outreach and drop in harm reduction and support services alongside education and employment training for current and former sex workers. http://www.safersexwork.ca/
