Tarts is a cabaret-style mini-musical by Kevin Feather.

The original text

The piece depicts one night in the life of three street hookers who share their dreams and realities, their trials and tribulations.

Original choreography by Claire Robins, additional choreography by Trish McKenna, musical arrangements by Kevin Feather. Lighting design by Skip Wright.
