By Arthur Kopit
Set in the women's ward of an insane asylum in 1938, the play depicts a board meeting convened by the resident women to plan a response to what they believe is an imminent attack by the men's ward. Each believes herself to be a fierce historical figure—Joan of Arc, Queen Isabel of Spain, Gertrude Stein, Amelia Earhart, and others. In a feminist twist, the women, who are overseen by a patriarchal and condescending doctor, begin to seem less insane and more like oppressed and strong-willed eccentrics.
