The ladies will present a specific site SCREWED on the construction site of a bar in October

Physical comedians THE LADIES have teamed up with immersive bar designer/architect WESLEY JAMES (Century Grand-UnderTow, Platform 18 & The Gray Hen) for a new site-specific production. SCREWED, the new show from the wild and crazy universe of THE LADIES, will be held on the construction site of the new James-designed cocktail bar concept that will open in Tempe later this fall.

Performances of SCREWED are October 21 and 22 at 7 and 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $45 and are on sale at


The Ladies and their closest friends (you!) reunite at a bar on Mill Ave but shockingly arrive at a construction site inside the latest creation from Wesley James (the designer behind Century Grand). Part satire, part reality, all ridiculous, audiences are in for an unexpected and memorable evening with The Ladies and a cast of unusual characters.

The location (somewhere on Mill Ave) will be revealed to ticket holders 24 hours in advance. A post-show discussion allows visitors to learn more about the space and James’ latest innovative design.

This event is for ages 21 and up only.


THE LADIES are a pair of goofy and goofy characters, clinging to the past to get through today. With a newfound ability to laugh at life’s most routine moments, they bring their wacky, goofy style of movement and live theater to the most surprising and unexpected places.

Sporting their classic Reeboks and fanny packs, The Ladies’ previous productions include “Ladies Gone Mild” (The Graduate Hotel in Tempe), “Room for Two” and “Ladies in the Headlights” (in Valley parking lots), as well than “Let Your Lady Out” (First Draft Book Bar/Changing Hands in downtown Phoenix).

They have been performed at the Chandler Center for the Arts, Scottsdale Center for the Arts, Players Theater NYC, Center for Visual Arts in Denver, Regional Alternative Dance Festival in Kalamazoo, and Dance’s 50th Anniversary at ASU.

This project is partially funded by the City of Tempe – Community Arts Grant.
