  • Voyage to Lesbos: "The action is in Lesbos, Illinois, and the occasion of Bonnie's wedding day, when five mysteriously intertwined women ostensibly prepare for the golden event, while their every action works to sabotage it."--Lisa Kron.
  • Brave Smiles ... another lesbian tragedy: "This play is a reflection of love. This one in particular manifests what we love about being Brothers and what we love about being lesbians: the tragedy of it all which can be so bitingly and relentlessly funny sometimes."--Maureen Angelos.
  • The Secretaries: "What happens when someone new comes into a tight group? This is how Patty Johnson was born. Susan Curtis was born when Dominique was being interrogated in an improv exercise. Ashley Elizabeth Fratangello was an homage to Elizabeth Ashley. We were obsessed with her SlimFast campaign at the time. Needless to say it permeates the script."--Peg Healey.
  • Brides of the Moon: "We had all reached a point where we could forgive our mothers for their fucked-up lives and accept them for themselves and for doing the best they could against insurmountable odds. We created a worldwide corporation to represent those odds and a woman who had at one time been a promising astronaut, but because of her integrity had ruined any chance she might have had to advance her career. The evil corporation has her "consciousness lowered" to get her out of the way."--Babs Davy.
