"waiting for aaa" 

Delaney's play Waiting For AAA - an all-female, comedic adaptation of Waiting for Godot in two acts - went to the NYC Fringe Festival in the summer of 2015. Before it's run at FringeNYC, it was a part of the Manhattan Repertory Theater's fall festival (November 2013). It's very first run was at Pace University's Studio 501. 

reviews: 

"A must-see comedy that is smart, earnest, and compelling." - Aubrey Moyce, Theasy.com (Read full review)
"If you've read Beckett's Waiting for Godot, you will have a wonderful time seeing how Yeager has adapted the story. Even if you haven't, you'll laugh at all the antics of three lively, strong women as they drive each other to the brink and back." - Josephine Cashman, NYTheaterNow.com (Read full review)
