Peaches Parton

Most of us have fantasized about sticking it to the boss, but the ladies in 9 to 5 actually went and did it. The 1980 comedy follows three secretaries at a large corporation who are fed up with their sexist, lying, idea-thieving boss. They fantasize about poisoning his coffee, threaten to turn him from "a rooster to a hen with one shot," and eventually kidnap him to run the office themselves. It's intentionally campy, hysterical, and regarded by many as a classic. It made the American Film Institute's list of the 100 funniest movies, and helped launch Dolly Parton to mainstream appeal. 9 to 5 is presented tonight by San Francisco's favorite drag star, Peaches Christ. Also on the program is a pre-show presentation of Work!, which features Christ with fellow drag performers Heklina and Pandora Boxx in a live parody of the film. Warning: Don't try this at work.
