“That’s what you were going to do, isn’t it? Paddy was gonna murder Bobby, then you and him were gonna stage a coup and take over the family. Kill me and Bill, and take over the whole family!”–The Godmother, by Sandra deHelen.
Whoa. This staged reading of Sandra deHelen’s THE GODMOTHER at the Fertile Ground theater festival looks like it might be the best lesbian crime story since BOUND. In this new play, Tomboy McCorkle is a young Butch lesbian assuming the responsibility for her crime family after the murder of her brother. Sexual politics, family rivalries, longing for love and a family torn apart. Tomboy has to take control and fast.
