Lesbian Love Octagon
"THANK GODDESS THIS WONDERFUL SHOW HAS ARRIVED"
TIME OUT NY, CRITICS PICK
Lesbian Love Octagon is a musical written by Kimberlea Kressal and Will Larche.
Set in the late 90s on the Lower East Side of New York City, LESBIAN LOVE OCTAGON follows the journey of Sue, a less than butch dyke with a broken heart, as she tries to cope with losing her girlfriend to her ex-girlfriend. When Sue’s friends (a bevy of ex-girlfriends and ex-girlfriends' ex-girlfriends) come rushing to her aid, they incite a tempest of lust and betrayal as they try to convince Sue that the answer to happiness exists in polyamory, pomade, and online personals. A riotous look at a righteous time in lesbian history, LESBIAN LOVE OCTAGON is a musical for anyone who has ever loved wimmin's bookstores, tofu, or cats.
Lesbian Love Octagon has had several productions including the critically acclaimed 2014 run.
