Deb Margolin's Lesbians Who Kill will receive its Washington, D.C., premiere on Sept. 3 at the Moonlight Theatre. Thomas King and Jeremy Beck will co-direct the production, which runs through Sept. 27.
Margolin is best known as a monologuist; her solo shows have been seen at such Off-Off-Broadway spaces as P.S. 122. She collaborating on Lesbians with Peggy Shaw and Lois Weaver, who originated the play's two roles. Moonlight's staging marks the first time the play has been produced without the involvement of its three creators.
The play takes place inside May and June's parked car during a thunderstorm. The story examines the couple's relationship, while the car radio reports on a crime spree by a pair of lesbian serial killers.
Jane Rupp and Krissy Hathaway star. Opening night for Lesbians Who Kill is Sept. 8.
