"Girl Stories & Game Plays" presents 30 years of silly, serious, strange, transcendent, and laugh-out-loud funny stories of girls and girl-women, including 'Ice Cream" and a new, updated version of Darleen Dances, as part of a trilogy of one-act plays. from Darleen Dances: 'I read this book by a movie star which said that the key to peace of mind is standing on your head. The theory is when you get all the blood in your head, it gives you this whoosh, and then all the bad thoughts and stuff fall outa your head and down on down to hell where they belong. Personally I'da preferred floating, but at least with this method gravity's on your side." from Watching the Human Race: 'The crowd freezes, and for one heavenly long moment, everything seems to go into slow motion. Marla looks at the hundreds of men, women, children, and wheelchair racers and sees a procession of bodies in meditation. Thousands of people in motion, yet nobody stepping on anyone else. Yes, there are a few who are sizing up the competition, but mostly they are deep within themselves, running the best they can. They run like a heartbeat. Hearts with legs."
