Girl PlayRobin Greenspan and Lacie Harmon (playing themselves) are cast in a play in which they are lovers. Robin is in a long term relationship with Audrey (Katherine Randolph), while Lacie seems commitment phobic.

As part of the preparation for the production, the director (Dom DeLuise) works with them to get to know one another better, to make believable lovers. Lacie has no problem spilling out the details of her past loves, but Robin is more uptight. She’s in therapy with her partner, but hates it, and her life seems to revolve around creating domestic bliss. Lacie loves picking up women in bars, since she doesn’t have to worry about living up to someone else’s expectations.

Two very different women. As rehearsals progress with kissing and making out, the lines between fiction and reality begin to blur. Both the characters and the actresses begin to feel love and lust for one another, causing confusion for both of them.

Will they break the barrier and go for it? Much of the film involves monologues, a creative way of presenting their stories. Both are very interesting, fleshed out characters with real relationship issues, played by two great actresses. Surprisingly, Dom DeLuise is also a bright spot as the gay director of the play, and not too far over the top. A very original production in the world of lesbian films! (AB)
