As with many anthologies, a bit of a mixed bag. The works here don't have a common theme, other than perhaps the rejection of standard linear story-telling and the Aristotelian three-part structure. The women are strong, but the author does have an unfortunate tendency to resort to the stereotypical strong, bitchy woman that mows others over in her path. There is definitely a streak of feminism, but at times a sense that the author is lashing out against feminism in favor of a version of femininity. Still, the plays are interesting and quirky, and definitely well worth a look. ( )
