    Theatre TCU will feature the play “Spike Heels” this week, a show about a young woman trying to find her place in a world dominated by men, production director Claire Parker said.

    “[Spike Heels] is about the struggle that young women have to find a way to be powerful and assert themselves, without it being about wearing short dresses and spike heels,” Parker said.

    Parker said “Spike Heels” is the most contemporary piece the theatre department is producing this year. She said the play is risque, but realistic.

    “It really talks about the issues and the lifestyle of our generation,” Parker said. “I love this play because I feel like I actually know all these characters.”

    The play is rated R for language, according to the TCU events website.

    Parker said the play will be empowering and funny to the audience, but with some sad parts.

    Four Theatre TCU students would make up cast, Parker said. Cast members are Brice Barnard, Katie Caruso, Collin Duwe, and Dani Martin.
