List of plays reviewed

I love theatre. I write and perform theatrical monologues. But I don't go to the theatre much. I almost prefer reading plays to seeing them. And the theatre has long been a privileged place where LGBTQ (especially "G") issues have been thrashed out.


Here's the LGBT-themed plays that I've reviewed so far. It's worth mentioning that I'm reviewing the play scripts, not productions of them, so my comments are skewed towards literary value rather than theatrical effect.


Please note, the attribution of stars is based on the Michelin guide system. So:


No star doesn't mean it's awful, but it's definitely missable. Read the review.

1 star: Definitely worth your time.

2 stars: An important work.

3 stars: A classic.
