Artistic director Genie Croft and cast members Pilar Uribe, Wendy Michaels, Jackie Rivera, Marjorie O'Neill-Butler and Carol Sussman explore the play at the GLCC Pride Center's Equality Park, 2040 N. Dixie Hwy., Wilton Manors.  Admission is $10.  For tickets, call 1-866-811-4111 or visit the Women's Theatre Project web site.
