Who needs a Sassy?

If you are not familiar with the Sassy Gay Friend series on the Second City Network Channel on YouTube, you need to be. The Shakespeares are the best (Ophelia, Desdemona, Juliet), and then they took a wrong turn somewhere around the Giving Tree. I have been working on a list of characters who need a SGF more than the Giving Tree ever since. Here it is:
  • Hedda Gabler, Hedda Gabler
  • Blanche DuBois, Streetcar Named Desire
  • Laura, the Glass Menagerie
  • Hermione, The Winter's Tale
  • Wendy, Peter Pan
  • the Young Woman, Machinal
  • Lady Anne, Richard III
I know you guys have more. I'm trying to keep it to classical women with boy problems, such as characters from classical plays, books, historical figures, etc. Put your ideas in a comment or on my facebook!

UPDATE: Officially adding...
  • Madame Bovary, Madame Bovary
  • Jocasta, Oedipus Rex
  • Medea, Jason and Medea/Greek mythology
