Going it alone is a fact of life for many women. Expressing different points of view and walks of life, this collection of plays for one voice explores the joys and sorrows, loves and losses in the lives of women. The wide-ranging subject matter is as various as the challenge of growing up and away, of confronting difficult career and family paths, of trying to hold on to love or integrity--and all of the other big questions that make up what life is like at the beginning of the 21st century.About the Author:
