Awkward, Unique, Slow, Dated

See it if you're curious about a rarely produced and moderately charming lesbian one-act that is a unique product of its time

Don't see it if you want prize-worthy dialogue, a fast-paced drama, or convincing acting/costumes/wigs (all of which were very uneven in this production) Read more

Great staging, Entertaining, Great writing, Clever, Great acting

See it if Did you hear the one about 11 lesbians walk into a 50’s bar? Find out what happens, when lesbian stop being polite, and start getting real.
