As we commemorate the three-year anniversary of the Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando, the largest episode of civilian gun violence in the history of the US, The Association for Theatre in Higher Education appropriately turns to theatre to help us commemorate the occasion through After Orlando.
On Friday, August 9, 2019, at 8 pm at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress, That Uppity Theatre Company and Mad Cow Theatre, in association with the Association for Theatre In Higher Education, Missing Bolts Productions Inc., and NoPassport Theatre Alliance, will present several excerpts from After Orlando, a collection of short plays. These plays were 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 LGBTQ+ and allied people, and injured 53 more. The plays are roughly three to eight minutes in length.
The readings will feature a professional cast of ten, directed by Monica Tamborello, Tara Kromer, Kenny Howard and Joan Lipkin. Admission is free to the public. A post show discussion will follow the readings.
