View Full Version : Looking for F/F Duo Interp piece -- prefer serious ...
10-24-2004, 11:32 PM
We have more than one set of F/F partners, low on guys this year.
We are in need of 1 or 2 F/F Duos. They would prefer serious but are
willing to look at Humorous? Any ideas? Not looking to do Ruthless or A..My Name is Alice, or Final Placement.....

Boo f/f partners! We have tons too, don't worry. I guess my suggestions are:
Dancing with a Devil by Brooke Berman
Misreadings (overdone, but still decent) by Neena Beeber
Finding a Chord by Catherine Keyser
and that's all I got. None of them are incredible, but it's so hard to find quality girl/girl duets.

One of the best plays that has two major female characters is "A Perfect Ganesh" by Terrence McNally. There are some very powerful scenes in that play. I would check it out.

Whats wrong with Final Placement?

Final Placement is terrible. It's the only girl/girl duet that's done more than Misreadings in Illinois. And I like Misreadings, even though it's also overdone. I can't stand Final Placement. It's done so much in Illinois it's insane.

except that it is done to death. I probably saw at least 6-8 of them last season alone. What I was saying is that I was looking for a newer F/F DUO. I appreciate the responses I have received thusfar. Thanks

In regards to "A Perfect Ganesh," The two scenes that I find the most powerful are the one where the one lady talks about her child getting run over by a car. In that scene, the African American woman who ran her child over comes to the funeral and sings "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" It's so moving. Then there is the scene where the other talks about her gay son being bashed by some African American men. The most powerful part is when she shouts "******!" Very moving. It is intense stuff and it is material that I wouldn't give to novices. Much better if used by some of your more mature speakers who can handle the material. Those are the two best scenes, but the whole play is so powerful.

In regards to "A Perfect Ganesh,"...The most powerful part is when she shouts "******!" Very moving.
Now, I admit, I have not heard of nor seen this piece to the best of my knowledge, but...
When Someone shouting "******!" is the most powerful part of a piece, doesn't that seem sort of like, I don't know...coping out? Like making something more funny instantly by adding "ninjas" or "pirates" or "Rosie O'Donnell"?
Meh, maybe I'm just jaded. :p
