The two-female play is the most difficult of all forms to find.” Dr. Daniel Cronn-Mills, Prof. and Chair, Speech Communication Dept., Minnesota State University “What sets this book apart is that the scripts were written for forensics performance. Each script is a ready-made cutting with a beginning and ending point and linear progression of events in between. There are so many scripts contained in this book, the authors were able to encapsulate a complete array of emotions felt in various types of female relationships. The pieces are of strong social and emotional significance; this empowers young women to assert interpretations and performances reflective of their own beliefs and core values.” Mark Rittenour, J.D., Director of Forensics, University of Akron “The women in these scenes are both passionate and vulnerable; their emotional journeys and complex circumstances will give the interpreter plenty to explore. The authors clearly care for the women they’ve created in these pages, and you will too.” Steven Spraragen, Associate Director, Playwrights Horizons Theater School, Affiliate of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, Department of Drama, New York, NYAbout the Author:
BARBARA LHOTA is an award-winning playwright as well as a screenwriter. The Studio's production of her play Third Person was selected by the Boston Herald as one of the top ten plays of the 1993-94 season.
