The Lesbian Play (5).png

On the night of the 2016 presidential election, Boston University's Women Loving Women Club gathers at their president's Back Bay apartment to celebrate the birthday of one of their own. With tensions already bubbling and cracking under the surface and their inner relationships with one another on the brink of extinction, the Women Loving Women Club is thrust into political turmoil as they wage war on each other over their political identities, the definition of lesbianism, and who can even consider themselves "LGBTQ".

The Lesbian Play is a one-act full length play with a runtime of approximately 90-100 minutes. There is no intermission.

The Lesbian Play is currently available for licensing on my New Play Exchange.
