Tickets for the 2017 Festival will be available in April 2017.
These three plays for the 2017 Festival were selected from more than 140 scripts submitted to the Festival by invitation. The themes of these three plays serve as inspiration for the groupings of 10-Minute Plays and for the creation of our three Artistic Blind Dates.
2017 Festival Full Length Plays
By Topher Payne
Directed by Nick Martin
In a 1950’s Georgetown duplex, Bob and Millie live next door to Norma and Jim, in what appears to be a perfect arrangement. The twist is that all four are gay and have cultivated fake identities outside of their homes, in order to live truthfully inside. The cultural shift of the 1950s brings about a moment of change when their carefully crafted falsehood is thrown into chaos. Topher Payne’s play (based on the historical events of The Lavender Scare) explores this shifting landscape with humor, energy, farce and surprising honesty.
