Overview

Utilizing a fast-moving revue format, this immensely inventive theatre piece provides a truly distinctive and delightful experience for performers and audiences alike. The material, all set to original music by Miss Swados, is drawn from the works of such writers as Sylvia Plath, Muriel Rukeyser, Carson McCullers and Miss Swados herself, and runs the gamut from hilarious farce to the sadness of lovers' parting. The result, in the words of Clive Barnes, "is an all-singing, all-dancing, all-acting show a show that is clearly a life view about people, animals and the things we do to one another."
