"Mary, always late and always married, meets a lady cowboy outside the city limits of Pittsburgh who teaches her how to ride a horse. Mary’s husband, Crick, buys a painting with the last of their savings. Mary and Crick have a baby, but they can’t decide on the baby’s name, or the baby’s gender. A story of one woman’s education and her search to find true love outside the box." – New Dramatists

Raising Awareness For:
AssistHers, which is dedicated to creating a community of caregivers who provide support for lesbians living with disabilities or chronic illness so that they may live as normally as possible. Their programs are focused on educating lesbian women and others about important health issues, with special emphasis on lesbian-related health concerns and eradicating discrimination or barriers lesbians often face when accessing health and social service systems. www.assisthers.com
