The author of Talking With and other hits has never been funnier or more compelling than in this suite of theatrical miniatures over thirty two minute monologues. The two men in the cast are optional foils for the six compelling women who perform a collage about contemporary woman in all her warmth and majesty, her fear and frustration, her joy and sadness. Vital Signs wowed audiences at the Humana Festival at Actors Theatre of Louisville, where it was directed of Jon Jory whose notes are published with the play.
"Vital and original." - The New York Times "Offers wonderful opportunities for actresses to show off their versatility." - Washington Times "Martin's eye and ear for the texture of everyday life in this culture is as playfully accurate as Lily Tomlin and Jane Wagner's. She's a fine quipster; but she manages, too, to open little windows of sadness into women's souls." - Detroit News
