Fresh off the plane from Australia – get ready to meet Cora. She's 23, self-obsessed and has no idea what she's doing with her life. She's also a stripper. After running into her estranged BFF-turned-GF-turned-ex, Cora embarks on a quest to prove that she doesn't push people away – she attracts them. Poles is a bitingly witty dark comedy about strip clubs and their customers, loneliness and the stigma of monetising your body. 'Tour-de-force' (WeekendNotes.com). 'Mesmerising' ***** (Advertiser).
