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
“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.

award for the best soap script of the
