This startingly contemporary play, filled with purposeful anachronisms & inspired by the real love letters between Mary Woolley and Jeannette Marks, spans through 40 years in 90 minutes and asks: What is revolution? What does it mean to be at odds with the world? How do we fulfill our potential? And how the hell do we grow old together? This beautiful excavation of queer history explores a story that has been buried and hidden away & explores it through a fast-paced & honest modern lens.
Aging. Betrayal. Feminism. Friendship. Love. Education. LGBTQ+ Interest. Women’s Interest.
