Welcome to Philadelphia, the city that gave us the Declaration of Independence, the Liberty Bell, Grace Kelly, and the Philly cheesesteak sandwich.
Gus Clover is your tour guide on an open-top sightseeing bus driving through the streets of the City of Brotherly Love. He’s keen to show you the city he loves from Betsy Ross’s house to the ‘Rocky Steps’ but the sights keep triggering off memories from his past.
Hear how his personal hero Benjamin Franklin inspired Gus to become an inventor. Laugh as he reminisces at how he met and married his wife Lynda, a librarian. Discover how it all went wrong when he brought Popeye the puppy into the family home just as Lynda was about to give birth.
This is the Philadelphia story that has nothing to do with the Main Line!
Topless in Philadelphia is a monologue ideal for solo performance or as an unusual audition piece.
