Description: A Five Lesbian Brothers play written by Maureen Angelos, Babs Davy, Dominique Dibbell, Peg Healey, Lisa KronComedic TragedyCharacters: 5 femalesIrreverent theater group the Five Lesbian Brothers get their greasy prints on a classic. Oedipus at Palm Springs follows the dark adventure of two couples on a retreat to the desert resort town. While new parents Fran and Con try desperately to jump-start their sex life, May-December love bunnies Prin and Terri can't keep their hands off each other. What begins as a hilarious, boozey weekend takes a horrific turn after a secret is revealed. Two parts comedy with a shot of tragedy shaken over ice, Oedipus at Palm Springs is a brave examination of the messy guts of relationships."Along the way to the inevitable dark twist is much lightness and enlightenment to revel in--not just a lot of zingy one-liners about commitment, gay life in America, parenthood, and growing older, but also a real sense of these four women as women, friends, and lovers.... It may be the saddest comedy you'll ever see." -The Boston Globe"Richly funny as it is, Oedipus at Palm Springs is also a serious inquiry into the unforeseen extremities of despair that can attend the search for a pure and lasting love." -Charles Isherwood, New York Times"Sensitive storytelling." -New York Magazine
