Tongue of a bird
nov.29th - dec. 2nd
An Equity-approved showcase about memory, loss and mothers and daughters.
Maxine, a search and rescue pilot, returns in midwinter to her childhood home in the Adirondacks. There, she conducts a search for a girl who while on a field trip in the mountains, was abducted by a stranger in a black pick-up truck. The search lasts for three days. Each night Maxine must face the girl's distraught mother, Dessa, and her own grandmother, Zofia, a reclusive Polish refugee. In sleep, Maxine is prey to nightmares and fragmented memories of a mother who abandoned her in childhood and was lost to insanity. A powerful consideration of the notions of loss, motherhood and the vexed yearning for release.
Queer Monologue Night
Monday, October 1, from 7pm - 10pm.
Networking to follow.
This will be a night of exploration of viable monologues for folks all along the queer spectrum and of all genders - from existing gender neutral or gender fluid monologues to new pieces written specifically for non-binary actors.
Medicine Show Theatre LAB will put on Queer Fest, a 10-day festival of plays and multi-media storytelling by queer authors exploring themes not often addressed by the mainstream community.
Queer Fest will celebrate the works of those who fit under the queer umbrella, especially aiming to include those generally left out in LGBT media—transgender and non-binary people, intersex people, and people whose sexualities fall outside of lesbian, gay, or bisexual. The festival will run 10 pieces over 40 performances.
The festival seeks to explore the experiences of queer, trans, gender nonconforming, and non-binary people.
