On Gay Marriage, Bluefish Cove Was Ahead Of It’s Time
One of the first things that surprised me about Last Summer at Bluefish Cove is the way “marriage’ amongst these lesbian couples is talked about quite casually. My expectation from a 1970’s play was that marriage would not even be mentioned. This was 30 years before the LGBTQ community even considered legal marriage a possibility. Yet the women of this play frequently refer to themselves as married and consider their committed relationships as marriages. I think the world is ready to catch up with the women of Bluefish Cove.
