Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting by in America
by Barbara Ehrenreich

“Compelling and insightful.”
Hollywood Reporter

Tennessee Women9s Theater Project, in partnership with Nashville Metro Parks, presents its third production, the Nashville premiere of "Nickel and Dimed."

What’s it like to make ends meet in a low-wage job? Investigative journalist Barbara Ehrenreich worked “undercover,” taking jobs as a waitress, a maid, and a Wal-Mart sales clerk to learn the answer. Her best-selling book, Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By in America earned widespread acclaim as one of the most important works of social criticism of our time.

Now Joan Holden has captured Ehrenreich9s experiences for the stage. Fast-paced and funny, compassionate and thought-provoking, “Nickel and Dimed” introduces a parade of memorable characters who endure back-breaking work with unbroken spirit.

Note: The performance contains mature language
