Mary is hiding in the bathroom, but not from her blind date. Precocious teenager Lucy is pushing her best friend (and soon-to-be stepmother) Jane into the bathroom to have a heart-to-heart about Lucy's father. Lydia finds herself in the bathroom holding a drenched silk blouse, considering her options. 

Preferred by Discreet Women Everywhere is a series of three, one-act plays that invite us into the most public, yet intimate, of settings: a women’s restroom. Poignant and hilarious, these plays are set in the posh bathroom of an upscale Minneapolis bistro where people celebrate life’s big moments, and encounter various crossroads in their lives – moments of celebration, distress, and transition. Sometimes all three.
