An Off-Broadway hit, this two-character comedy takes place in the suburban New York kitchen of a model housewife, who is having a tough day: her husband is off on a weekend spree with his secretary and she can't get rid of her pesky new neighbor just arrived from Texas. Two housewives – one a picture-perfect model matron, the other a former cheerleader – learn lessons about life, love and their assumptions about each other when they form an unlikely alliance and improbable friendship. This long running play originally starred Susan Sarandon and Eileen Brennan in the 1980's in Greenwich Village.
"John Ford Noonan's play about two women trying to salvage lives for themselves out of their wrecked marriages offers a forward-looking insight into the shortcomings of sisterhood."
"As the current revival by New City Stage demonstrates, A Coupla White Chicks... does indeed possess some value— ... as a reminder of how our perceptions of these subjects have evolved in 30 years."
