A One-Woman Show

Crossing the Rapelands premiered at PortFringe 2013. This is a travelogue along the lines of the work of Spalding Gray, about the playwright’s experiences of hitchhiking through America in the early 1970's—specifically about hitchhiking from Boulder to Los Angeles, to San Francisco and back with another woman in the summer of 1973. In this tale of lost lesbian love, Gage incorporates the tales of other women crossing the "Rapelands" of the West: Sacajawea, Janis Joplin, Thelma and Louise, and the women of the Oregon Trail.
