Description

  • Used Book in Good Condition
  • The Five Lesbian Brothers are not only gaspingly hilarious and blithely subversive, they are fully capable of creating
    characters named Dawn, Patty and Peaches. Their work travels from the Pygo Moon System to the elite Tilue-Pussenheimer
    Academy to my favorite town in all world literature-Big Bone, Oregon. Reading The Brothers' plays is addictive, although
    I am told that the group will come to your home and perform them. But be prepared: these women are sexy, silly and
    homicidal, and they chug-a-lug SlimFast. You need them. -Paul RudnickThe first collection of plays by The Five Lesbian
    Brothers includes:

    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

    The Five Lesbian Brothers are Maureen Angelos, Babs Davy, Dominique Dibbell, Peg Healey and Lisa Kron. They came
    together as an acting company in 1989 after performing together in various other com
