Whining and Dining
written by Robin Epstein and Sarah Schulman
Whining and Dining, directed and produced by Robin Epstein, was a lesbian comedy retelling of the Job story.
"There's no doing justice to the loopiness of an Epstein and Schulman plot. I can't think of any other playwrights who'd stage the trial of their heroine's immortal soul in Grossinger's Dining Room."
– Leslie Gevirtz, Gay Community News
Robin Epstein is "the lesbian equivalent of Woody Allen. And like Allen, the butt of her jokes are things and people she knows intimately: New York City, Jews and lesbians. . . . She pokes fun at the Borscht Belt, Brooklyn and the Brahmins of the arts-funding world."
– Jolanta Benal, New York Native
