There’s a reason it was called the Wild West. At least, that’s the basic premise of “Jenny’s House of Joy,” a play by Canadian writer Norm Foster — except instead of outlaws and the wilderness, it’s … well, it’s folks engaging in another form of crime. The “house of joy” in question is a parlor of iniquity — brothel, if we must be blunt — inhabited by some very sassy ladies. Winterport Open Stage and director Dominick Varney took on the hilarious story of a few women in the American West, in the world’s oldest profession, and will open the show at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 16, at Wagner Middle School in Winterport. This comedy, starring Emily Gammon, Jenny Hart, Brianne Beck and Christie Robinson, pits the established women of the night against a newcomer. Laughs ensue. Shows continue at 7:30 p.m. April 17, 23 and 24, and at 3 p.m. April 18 and 25. Tickets are $8, $5 for students and seniors, and the show is recommended for mature audiences.
