Please don't do Genet's 'The Maids' which Genet wanted to have performed
by three men, not three women (and it's much much better when performed
the way he wanted!).

Sarah,

What about Albee's "Three Tall Women?"

I don't know if you'd consider it "classical," but the play that leaps
to mind is Paula Vogel's *Desdemona.*

Would "Mrs. Klein" work?

Since all Greek plays were done by three actors you could do any Greek
play. In those days the roles were all acted by men, but by the goose
and gander rule there is no reason why three women actors couldn't act
male and female parts, just as the men did.

In reply to Sarah Boswell's enquiry, how "classical" is "classical"?
Would, for instance, Paula Vogel's "Desdemona: Story of a Handkerchief"
qualify, even though it is a contemporary feminist play-for three
women?  A more radical idea, if you are so inclined, is to adapt a
"standard" text to work for three:  I myself have adapted "Macbeth" to
be performed by three, sex/gender indeterminate and fluid.  But it may
also be possible for, say, The Tempest, or perhaps a Sophoclean
tragedy.  Of course, your "three" would have to be pretty stellar.

I will be interested to read other responses.

Nick Pullin.

How about _Lysistrata_?

Or _Hamlet_? (he's being played, schizoid fashion, by three women at the
Folger "as we speak."
