Set in pre-Stonewall Greenwich Village, THE BEEBO BRINKER CHRONICLES follows the lives and loves of Laura, Beth and Beebo as they navigate uncharted territories of desire. Beth and Laura, secret lovers in college, went separate ways after graduation: Beth married and had children; Laura moved to New York. Both pine for each other, but before they can reunite, they find themselves entangled in the web of Beebo Brinker, a butch denizen of the bars with a soft spot for young lesbians fresh off the bus. Adapted from the 1950's and 1960's lesbian pulp novels by Ann Bannon, the play celebrates the era when "the love that dares not speak its name" began breaking the old rules.

"there's gold in that dime-store pulp... this colorful portrait of gay life in the Village startles with the truths it flashes amid the one-liners and melodramatic confrontations." --NY Magazine --New York Magazine
