LEZPLAY WEEKEND



EVENT DATE
Friday, September 11, 2015
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

LOCATION
Hoover-Leppen Theatre, Center on Halsted


DESCRIPTION

LezPlay Weekend features five outstanding new works* - the finalists of this year's Pride Films and Plays' LezPlay contest!

LezPlay enhances the visibility and advances the viability of women who write plays, screenplays, and teleplays. The program not only advocates for more dyke drama; it honors excellence in scripts written by women in which lesbian characters and themes - past, present, and future - play a pivotal role.

The finalists’ scripts showcase Sapphic-centric narratives with a positive outlook. These are stories that elevate and celebrate us, refine and redefine us. Regardless of how you identify (or ident-defy) and even if your identity is not queer-cut, you’ll have a gay old time at LezPlay Weekend, where we’ll introduce you to women whose writing reflects, resonates with, and is relevant to your lives.

*The scripts will be presented as enhanced staged readings.

Black-Hearted Bitch, a teleplay by Lynn Kear
