About the author (1983)

Born in Seattle, Washington, Terry received her B. Ed. degree from the University of Washington in 1956. In the 1960s she became internationally prominent as a playwright with the Open Theatre and as the author of the first rock musical, Viet Rock (1966). In 1974 she joined the Omaha Magic Theatre as literary manager and playwright-in-residence. Many of her plays, which are experimental and avant-garde, criticize stereotyped gender roles while creatively affirming the strength of women. Over the years, Terry has created approximately 70 plays that have changed the course of contemporary drama and established her as a key figure in America's alternative theatre.
