Bankrupt by Stephanie Turple
A dirty, sexy new musical comedy about the high price of low finance. Anna, deep in debt, decides that bankruptcy is her only option. She meets with bankruptcy trustee James Larson, whose dry, uncaring information about the bankruptcy process hits poor Anna like a cold shower after a hot day of shopping. In order to avoid a life without Louis Vuitton, Anna takes up an ancient profession that promises a lot of income in a short amount of time. This intertwines her fate with that of James, his ex-wife and their son, in a series of hilarious and unexpectedly sexy ways.
