Greenway Court Theatre & Greenway Arts Alliance presents Herland, a queer coming-of-age comedy about women growing up, growing old and rocking out to the beat of their own drums.

After graduating from high school, Natalie gets a summer internship working for Jean, her elderly neighbor, on a special project: creating a DIY retirement home for Jean and her two best friends.

Herland is a queer coming-of-age story about women growing up, growing old, and growing into themselves.

"...The melding of the generations with Jean's desire to be 'cool' and her tutelage of Natalie .. who in turn tutors these Golden Girls to find themselves, is expectedly 'cute.' Not to use the term as a negative, these older women will not go gently anywhere.. and that is .. at least.. endearing if not.. well... cute."

"...Although a dramedy about intergenerational bonding is a good idea, itís hard to see how Natalie would find an internship (duties mostly unspecified) in Jeanís garage thatís worth her time. And a breakout dream sequence where all five characters take part in emulating a performance of ďBorn to RunĒ makes for a change of pace but itís a little spurious as a bridge between the senior citizen scenario and the one that takes place between the two younger women."
