Before Lesbian TikTok, before The L Word, before Ellen, there was Dykes To Watch Out For, Alison Bechdel’s seminal comic-strip sensation about the lives and loves of one tight-knit dyke community that was a fixture in gay papers across America for 25 years.
Follow the trials and tribulations of Mo, Lois, Toni, Clarice, and the rest of their friends as they surf the waves of dyke drama from the softball field to the women’s bookstore, from the brunch rush at the vegan Café Topaz all the way to the steps of the Supreme Court, in a very special episode set at the landmark 1987 March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights.
From the fevered mind of Alison Bechdel, MacArthur Genius Award-winning author of Fun Home and Are You My Mother?, Alison Bechdel’s Dykes To Watch Out For is an American classic, brought hilariously to life in this new comedy by a star-studded crew, including Carrie Brownstein (Portlandia), Roberta Colindrez (A League of Their Own), Roxane Gay (New York Times-bestselling author of Bad Feminist) Jenn Colella (Broadway’s Come from Away), and thecelesbian icon herself, Jane Lynch (Glee).
Adapted by playwright and Pulitzer Prize finalist Madeleine George (Only Murders in the Building), directed by Tony nominee Leigh Silverman (Violet), with original music by Alana Davis, Faith Soloway, and Bitch, and a soundtrack featuring hits by Ferron, Holly Near, Sweet Honey in the Rock, Cris Williamson, and Joan Jett.
