In Adventures for (Big) Girls, Canada's finest women playwrights take on their heroes of choice and write their own adventures. The result: steamy, desert sex; trick-shooting and buffalo hunting; muck-raking journalism; disguise; bravery and rebellion!

Here are the newly dramatized lives of Isabelle Eberhardt, the desert adventurer; Anna Swan, a giant in P.T. Barnum's gallery; Karen Ridd, a Canadian peace-worker in El Salvador; Calamity Jane of the Wild West; Nellie Bly, reporter for the New York World; Wallis Simpson, mistress and wife to an ex-King; and the German terrorist Ulrike Meinhof.
