Patience and Sarah by Isabel Miller( Book )

21 editions published between 1969 and 2008 in English and German and held by 956 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in the nineteenth century, Isabel Miller's classic lesbian novel traces the relationship between Patience White, an educated painter, and Sarah Dowling, a cross-dressing farmer, whose romantic bond does not sit well with the puritanical New England farming community in which they live. They choose to live together and love each other freely, even though they know of no precedents for their relationship; they must trust their own instincts and see beyond the disdain of their neighbors. Ultimately, they are forced to make life-changing decisions that depend on their courage and their commitment to one another

"It is the latter years of World War II. Gertrude is convinced that she should be grateful to the superior, belittling Earl for marrying her; for her children, whose respect and allegiance belong to Earl; for the demeaning circumstances of her life, which she believes would be even harsher except for Earl. Milly is the independent, sometimes willful wife of Earl's successful brother. Milly is also a self-acknowledged lesbian. Apprehensively, Gertrude takes a wartime factory job. And soon she is compelled to confront the bondage of her life. Milly's life becomes ever more entwinded with Gertrude's, and she too discovers bonds in her life: those she must break, and those she must hold dear... Two singular women during the war years, when thousands discovered the missing dimension in their lives, and a few took the first steps to escape from their domestic prisons."--Publisher's description

"The time is 1816. The place is the Housatonic Valley, Connecticut. The people are Patience White and Sarah Dowling, young women who must contend not only with their narrow society but also with their own cowardice and doubt, in order to do something unheard of -- live together and love each other; and those who help or hinder them: Edward White, brother and legal guardian of Patience; Martha, his wife, whose correct female life frightens Patience and helps her choose Sarah; Ira Dowling, Sarah's father, who must be more sternly moral than anyone else because he refuses to attend church; Rachel, sister and not entirely innocent betrayer of Sarah; Daniel Peel, unfrocked parson and itinerant bookseller; and many others"--Back cover

Since 1981, the Split Britches Company (founded by Lois Weaver, Peggy Shaw, and Deb Margolin, www.splitbritches.com) has written and performed in trio, duet, and solo, as well as collaborated and performed with other artists. They describe their work in this way: 'Our work is rooted in popular culture, but positioned against it. It relies on moments rather than plot, relationships rather than story. It depends on the surprise of transformation rather than the logic of psychological narrative. It straddles the line between performance and theater, exploiting theatricality while exposing the pretense. It is about a community of outsiders, queers, eccentrics. It is feminist because it encourages the imaginative potential in everyone and lesbian because it takes the presence of lesbian on stage as a given.' Their vaudevillian satirical gender-bending performances have received numerous awards, including a Jane Chamber award and four Village Voice OBIE awards. Their collection of scripts, Split Britches Feminist Performance/Lesbian Practice, edited by Sue Ellen Case, won the 1997 Lambda Literary Award for Drama. This video documents their show Patience and Sarah, an adaptation of the eponymous novel by Isabel Miller. The piece was adapted by Joyce Halliday and produced in the style of the Split Britches Company
