The Beebo Brinker Chronicles

The Beebo Brinker ChroniclesBy Moira Ryan and Linda S. Chapman
Adapted from the pulp fiction "Beebo Brinker" novels by Ann Bannon

“There’s gold in that dime-store pulp…far from being a simple sepia-toned snapshot of the past, this colorful portrait of gay life in the Village startles with the truths it flashes amid the one-liners and melodramatic confrontations.” —New York Magazine

Directed by Judith Chapman

Set in pre-Stonewall Greenwich Village, the play follows the lives and loves of Laura, Beth and Beebo as they navigate uncharted territories of desire. Beth and Laura, secret lovers in college, went separate ways after graduation: Beth married and had children Laura moved to New York. Both pine for each other, but before they can reunite, they find themselves entangled in the web of Beebo Brinker, a butch denizen of the bars with a soft spot for young lesbians fresh off the bus. The play celebrates the era when “the love that dares not speak its name” began breaking the old rules.
