Dictionary Definition : Laura: Also known as "Solveig", her internet pseudonym, this female specimen of Homo Sapiens founded the Literary Cabinet world. One can spot "Laura," by the fun she has grading papers and drinking coffee, with triple coffee consumption ever since she quit smoking. Like another species, Homo Sapiens Zarasahanous, she enjoys picking at the extreme Twilight fans. This specimen is particularly fond of procrastinating, as most of the other species of the Literary Cabinet Universe are.

Hi all,

In our theatre group there are mostly women, and we are always short of men. Therefore, I am looking for plays whose characters are largely female. So far I've read "Top Girls" and "The Waiting Room", and I wondered if you knew any others? Any ideas will be appreciated!

If history is doomed to repeat itself, bring on the beheadings.

Dictionary Definition : Dictionary Definition: Paul-One of the few male LC creatures known to exist, this specimen is one of the eldest in the LC universe. This specimen is known to work long hours but still makes time to commingle with fellow LC denizens. This being has a peculiar sense of humor and has been observed to shun smilies, although this aversion has been lessening as of late.

Well, plays are not my strong suit, but one interesting play that may interest your group (although I am not sure what the ratio of female characters to male ones are) is Lysistrata by Aristophanes. The story, basically (if you are not familiar with it), is about a bunch of wives who, fed up with the constant warfare that makes up their husbands' lives, withhold sex from them until peace is established. It is a comedy, of course, but it has a serious, universal message.

So many things I would have done, but clouds got in my way.--Joni Mitchell
