Overview

The maiden effort from legendary theater troupe the Five Lesbian Brothers, Voyage to Lesbos takes a darkly humorous look at the warping effects of internalized homophobia and phallo-centrism on the lesbian psyche. The action takes place in Lesbos, Illinois, in a vaguely defined pre-Stonewall, post-Freudian period of American culture. The occasion is Bonnie's wedding day. Five inextricably intertwined women ostensibly prepare for the happy event, while their every action serves to sabotage it. Highlights include several rousing musical numbers and a jerk-off session between the cousins, Bonnie and Connie, involving banal heterosexual fantasy and a vacuum cleaner. Ever treading on thin ice, Voyage to Lesbos laughs so that it does not cry.
