The one-act play Bar Dykes was written by queer playwright Merril Mushroom in the early 1980’s as a means to archive and preserve the cultural legacy of gay bars in the 1950’s. In the foreword to a recently published edition of the play, Faythe Levine and Caroline Paquita note: “In an era where dating apps have seemingly replaced ‘cruising,’ the much needed archiving of the dyke bar culture of the twentieth century has become imperative, in order to record this rapidly disappearing underground herstory.” The play will feature a queer cast and crew.
