Healthy Acting

Bluefish Cove contracts a fatal dramatic illness.

The play does make some good observations about the difficulties of being gay in a homophobic society, as the other women explain to Eva just what she'll be giving up if she stays with Lil -- including, possibly, her relationship with her parents. And there was one moment when I fully believed in the reality of Lil's cancer -- when Denise Perry-Olson wept alone after the others had gone.
