QCQ and Progressive Players combined to produce the acclaimed and highly successful “P.S., Your Cat Is Dead” last August, with almost every performance sold out. The setting for "Biuefish” is a quiet New England coastal resort. The occasion is another summer vacation by eight good lesbian friends, one of whom is dying. With warmth and good humor, poignancy and sadness, the other seven learn to deal with the pending death of their loved companion. Charlotte playwrite Margaret Kelso directs. “It’s a very good play that explores the lesbian world, both its strengths and problems,” Kelso said. “The thing I like most about it is the fact it’s about a group of women who love each other in many different ways.” Playing the parts of the eight main chairacters will be Syndy Brown, Diane Hood, Marsha Kirk, Catherine Smith, Gina Stewart, Cary Svich, Joan Tillotson and Joni Washam. Beverly Bertram serves as stage manager. Set design is by Bob Croghan. Jeff Campbell serves as producer on behalf of QCQ. Jane Chambers died last February at the age of 45 after battling a brain tumor for nearly IVz years. Her play, “A Late Snow,” in 1974 was the first “out” lesbian play that affirmed the lesbian lifestyle as a positive experience. She was a writer on the staff of “Search for Tomorrow,” the daytime television soap, at the time and received a Writer’s Guild award for the best soap script of the year. “Biuefish” was written in 1976.
