About this show

The Brothers are back. After six years, The Five Lesbian Brothers (comprised of writers/performers Maureen Angelos, Babs Davy, Dominique Dibbell, Peg Healey, and Lisa Kron) return with Oedipus at Palm Springs and take twistedly funny aim at Greek tragedy. During a sunny vacation for two committed lesbian couples, the fun-loving surface of tanning, mixed drinks, golf, and sport utility vehicles meets the messy infrastructure of long-term relationships, maternal love, and gay marriage. Sloppy boundaries, plus a sidecar of hidden identity make this the feelweird lesbian tragicomedy of the year. Leigh Silverman directs.
