    Dear All,
    There is a play title that is escaping me and I am hoping one of you can help me with it.
    I thought it was called Shakespeare’s Leading Ladies, or The Women of Shakespeare, or The Leading Ladies of Shakespeare but I am not finding any of these names with Samuel French or the Dramatist.
    It’s a one-act play, females only, and the leading ladies of Shakespeare give Juliet advice on how to deal with (a) Romeo, but she turns the tables on her counterparts (all failed loves/marriages) and schools them on the topic of love.
    Does this sound familiar to anyone out there? I had two copies but as happens with teenagers, scripts sometimes do go unreturned…
    Regards,
    Joe

    Is it IN JULIET'S GARDEN?

    IN JULIET'S GARDEN by Judith Elliot McDonald | 7f
    Juliet Capulet invites four other heroines of Shakespeare's classics (Katharina, Portia, Ophelia and Desdemona) to lunch in her favorite garden in Verona to discuss 'issues' they all have with their plots. All the ladies have suggestions how these issues might be remedied. Shakespeare has also been invited, but instead sends an envoy, his literary agent and Editor Jacqueline de Boys, who attempts to save the day with the help of Juliet's Nurse. This lively fifty-minute one-act comedy sparkles with wit and an in-depth understanding of the characters of these indelible ladies, and their effects on playgoers over the centuries. (Optional ending has a cameo appearance by Shakespeare in the last scene).

    Not sure, but this sounds very similar and may work equally as well; I was looking for a second Dinner Theater piece with 4-6 female roles.
    Thank you and regards,
