Girl Talk
Co-Authored with Carolyn Myers
Girl Talk, a 2-act play filled with gossip, crises, intimate revelations and friendship. Available from Samuel French, Inc.

Gossip, crises, intimate revelations - and above all, friendship between women throughout their lives. These seven funny, sometimes poignant episodes begin with two twelve year old girls confronting puberty and end with the adventures of a pair of feisty socialist octogenarians. In other scenes, women listen to the ominous ticking of their biological clocks, a jilted wife discovers that she misses her husband less than the best friend he left her for, and Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas invite the audience to a private tete a tete in their salon.

2 Act Comedy Flexible casting: 2 to 12 F single flexible set/ about 105 minutes Extremely flexible casting - 2 to 12 actresses play a dozen fascinating characters. Filled with strong, lively monologue and scene material. Simple staging and costuming. Tremendous audience appeal.
