Current Show: Last Summer at Bluefish Cove

by Jane Chambers

“Funny” “Groundbreaking” “Honest and Moving” 

Last Summer at Bluefish Cove is the story of a young dissatisfied straight woman who leaves her husband to spend some quiet time by herself, and who unwittingly and naively wanders into the midst of a group of seven lesbians at the beginning of their annual beachside vacation. The friendships, the laughter, the love, the fears of being outed, the difficulties of being gay and how it affects relationships with family, children, parents and careers, the demonstrations of what the painful price could be for a gay life in 1980s America, had never before been told with such respect.

Chambers' comedic dialogue, sensitivity to human nature and tender treatment of her characters help the play transcend preconceptions and show the universality of these women's journeys. (Goodreads)

This landmark play is an emotional, funny, feel-good, and heart-wrenching story that speaks universally to audiences of all genders, identities, and lifestyles in a wonderful, entertaining, and insightful fashion.

Last Summer at Bluefish Cove is broadly considered to be one of the greatest scripts of its genre. With a cast of eight magnificently talented actors from throughout the Twin Cities theatre community, Century Playhouse is thrilled to be producing this important, all-female cast play staged in an intimate setting with the audience physically close to the action of the play. Seating is limited.
