In creating this collage of the lives of real pioneer women, the authors discovered that what was expressing itself was a kind of courage, a power, a way of life. It became clear that what was being unveiled was their spirit—the kind of spirit that transcends a specific period of history and becomes a recognizable, universal symbol to all people facing new frontiers. Frontiers is a play with a pulse. The pulse of Frontiers is the heartbeat of the women who came, stayed, lived, and died on the American frontier.

“As a whole, Frontiers looks to be somewhat of a masterwork, as if the souls of the pioneers have taken control of the stage to tell a curious world just how it was they lived and dreamed … and it remains haunting long after the final curtain.” Variety Magazine, LA
