Read Synopsis

In The Secretaries, a dark comedy with a deceptively simple title, the Five Lesbian Brothers manage to pay homage to influences as far flung as Hollywood T7A king Russ Meyer and Off Broadway’s late campmeister Chrales Ludlam, gross out their audience with some well-placed blood packets, and, within the first five minutes of the show, rhyme “secretarial” with “burial”.  If the troupe takes too much time getting where it’s going, or retreading where it’s been, it finds its own quirky place nonetheless.
