Patricia Larson and Sandra Nisbet were The Co-Respondents, a theatrical troupe whose themes expressed the call for women’s equal rights, nourished late twentieth century women’s dreams and ambitions, and helped men to accept the changing roles of women which encourage the spontaneity, creativity, and intellectual promise of humanity’s other half. The duo toured their self created historical performances from 1972–1987. A small collection of audio/video recordings survives from their four hundred plus performance repertoire.
