Women of Manhattan
Women of Manhattan is a play written by John Patrick Shanley and originally performed in 1986. It revolves around the lives of three women who are living in Manhattan: one has recently split up with her boyfriend, one is married, and one is considered a "fag hag" by the other two as she often unknowingly dates men who turn out to be homosexual. Robert Coe wrote "this play, while beautifully written and complete, feels a little weightless", while a critic reviewing a 1999 production of the play for SF Weekly called it "an ordinary play, universal without being timeless".
The American Academy of Dramatic Arts recommends it for female monologues.
