11/14: After Orlando: Plays about the Pulse Nightclub Shooting
Plays about the Pulse Nightclub Shooting
That Uppity Theatre Company and the St Lou Fringe, in association with Missing Bolts Productions Inc. and NoPassport Theatre Alliance, present excerpts from a collection of three minute plays specifically written and curated in response to the massacre at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida on June 12, 2016 that took the lives of 49 LBGTQ people.
This performance is free to attend, but we strongly suggest reservations as space is limited.
“After Orlando,” is an international playwright-driven theatre action including playwrights from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Africa. Throughout the fall, “After Orlando” is being read across the country and in the UK at over 75 venues. The St. Louis version will include an interactive panel discussion with community leaders. Participants include representatives from the Diversity Awareness Partnership, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, Metropolitan Community Church, Central Reform Congregation, St. Stanislaus, and well known drag personality Michael Shreves (Michelle McCausland).
A number of St. Louis area directors will be participating in this one night only event at the Kranzberg Arts Center (501 N. Grand Blvd, St. Louis, MO 63103), including Merlin Bell, Edward Coffield, Adam Flores, Matthew Kerns, Fanny Lebby, Joan Lipkin, Lee Anne Mathews, Jacqueline Thompson, and Jackie Chambers.
