“. . . [T]wo old women . . . joined together on one side, [form] one large woman with ‘two heads’ [and] engage in absurdly logical dialogue. With silly verbal rivalries they attempt to disguise their isolation and loneliness.”—Brock, 91.

• “Born in Vancouver, Sally Clark is a critically acclaimed playwright who has been dazzling audiences with her penchant for dark humour, ironic wit and sharp character portrayals. Her plays, typically presented in a series of short, vivid and fast-paced scenes, seamlessly combine comedic and tragic motifs to tell the stories of strong and adventurous women. In Saint Frances of Hollywood and Life Without Instruction, she demonstrates her knack for dramatizing the lives of historical figures, providing a feminist re-visioning of what it means and what it costs to be a heroine. Clark has been playwright-in-residence at Theatre Passe Muraille, the Shaw Festival, Buddies in Bad Times Theatre, Nakai Theatre and Nightwood Theatre. She is also an accomplished painter, director and filmmaker. When she was a resident artist at the Canadian Film Centre, she wrote and directed her award-winning short film Ten Ways to Abuse an Old Woman. Clark moved to Toronto in 1974 but returned to Vancouver in 1994 and has been residing there since.”—Talonbooks.com :: Author Details, http://www.talonbooks.com/index.cfm?event=authorDetails&authorID=35, accessed November 22, 2006.
