Their plan of creating a custom underwear business becomes the foundation of the town’s survival in this comedy that celebrates determination, entrepreneurial spirit, and the willingness to bare it all.

“In brief, Knickers bares small town ‘chutzpah’”
— Densire Lemire, Curtain Calls
“The two acts seemed to fly by in an instant as the audience jumped to its feet in a thunderous standing ovation to justly reward the actors at the final curtain call. Knickers is a “must see” for anyone wanting to put a glow of merriment on their summer.”
- Francie Dennison
“The show has had great success wherever it’s played, especially in small towns where people can relate to the challenges the ladies face”
— Donnie Bowes, Artistic Director, Upper Canada Playhouse
