The Girls are Amy Ray, 22, and
Fmily Saliers. 23. In a recent
telephone interview. Ray des
cribed their sound as a
progressive-folk creation. All the
songs they perform come from
original material written by both
Ray and Saliers.
"We sing a lot of angry love
songs," Ray said. "We want
people to feel like they can express
Ray expressed the duo's con
cern about being typecast as a
Joan Bae spin-off. "We're not
sappy, corny, hippy musicians,"
Ray said. "We just have a lot of
things to say, and we say them."
According to Ray, English
acoustic groups have influenced
the Girls' musical style. She said
Saliers looks to Joni Mitchell
while Ray looks to artists like
Lloyd Cole and the Commotions
and Aztec Camera.
Ray said stage presence proves
to be the Indigo Girls' attracting
feature, according to reviews. She
described their show as very high

As for future aspirations, Ray
stated that they are currently
searching for a record deal with

The Indigo Girls began singing
together in high school, entering
talent shows and playing in local
bars on the weekends.
A standard dictionary pro
vided the name for the band.
Indigo is associated with old
Indian lore in the form of dye and
crops. This Indian mystique
accounts for their choice of
"Indigo Girls" as the band name.

show at the Cradle. To her
prospective audience Ray said,

The show, which previews tonight

Cocteau's "The H uman Voice" in the
series. The theme for this year's
Playfest is the changing role of
women in society.
"Lu Ann." written by New Mex
ican playwright Preston Jones,
opens in 1953 in a small fictional
town in west Texas. The play traces
the progress of Lu Ann Hampton,
first seen as a 17-year-old cheer

two husbands and enough stressful
situations to daunt even the most
self-reliant modern woman.
"Lu Ann learns to take respon
sibility for her life and make cho
ices." director Craig Turner said.
"She learns to make her own way
without having to rely on men. The
self-sufficiency she gains is not just
economic but also spiritual."
An important aspect of Lu Ann's
character is that although circum
stances force her to make her way
alone, she does not view herself as
a persecuted woman. She does not
bemoan her fate or wallow in self
pity. Instead, "she accepts the
responsibility willingly, and with
great pride and spirit." Turner said.
"If there's a problem, she tackles it."
Written in 1974. "Lu Ann" is the
most modern of the three repertory
plays. According to Turner, it is also
the most American and the most
comic. "This show has the west
Texas sense of language and cul
ture." he said. "It has a very Amer
ican spirit. 'Lu Ann' offers the story
of a woman who is growing up as
America grows up."
In each of the three shows in this
year's Playfest. the main character
is a female who. due to various
circumstances, is forced to examine
her life and ask herself if she should
become more actively involved in
order to control her own future.
The major players in "Lu Ann"
will include Melissa Proctor as Lu
Ann Hampton, Brian Hotaling as
her brother Skip, and Dede Corvinus
as her mother Claudine Hampton.
Demetrios Pappageorge will play Lu
Ann's first husband. Dale Laverty.
