Book by Marian Partee, Music by Patrick Burns & Lyrics by Patricia Zehentmayr
Bipolar songwriter Hannah Johnson lands in a psychiatric hospital due to her little habit of attempting suicide. She meets the other residents who claim to be the very “madwomen” she learned about in her women’s studies class: Vivien Leigh, Zelda Fitzgerald, Mary Todd Lincoln, Camille Claudel, and Queen Juana “La Loca” of Castile. The ladies are determined to break out of the hospital where the enigmatic Doctor Ward has confined them, but are they ready to face the men and the messes they left behind?
