Three delicate ballerinas are in the dressing room during an intermission for Swan Lake. Scheherazade smokes cigars to relax. Petroushka, who has a drinking problem, is worried about how many buttocks she has and would kill for a meat loaf. Both are worried about Giselle who is so convinced that she is a swan that she is laying eggs. The roof leaks, they have not been paid, and Giselle is molting. This funny take on the transformational magic of art is by the author of The Girlhood of Shakespeare's Heroines
