An international playwright-driven theater action that includes more than 70 playwrights, After Orlando is an evening of readings of short plays, live music and other performances in response to the June 12 Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando, and takes place here at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 21, at Raisbeck Performance Hall at Cornish College of the Arts.
The event is free to attend, but donations to nonprofit Pulse of Orlando are strongly encouraged. Reserve tickets here.
Forward Flux Productions, in association with Missing Bolts Productions Inc. and NoPassport Theatre Alliance and Press, are producing the Seattle performance.
“As theatremakers, we have the ability to bring together many singular unique voices toward a common goal,” say Missing Bolts artistic directors Blair Baker and Zac Kline in a news release. “We have invited some of the most admired theatre artists worldwide to participate; to share our grief, our anger, our hope and our desire to combat the violence we are now living with on a daily basis.”
After Orlando includes performances and/or direction from local artists: Matt Aguayo, Jose Amador, Laura Aschoff, Charhys Bailey, Kyle Biaz, Andy Buffelen, Rachel Delmar, Wesley Frugé, Hisam Goueli, Alex Guy and Diverse Harmony Men's Choru. There will be original plays by Antonio Arauz, Jeremy O. Harris, Anders Lustgarten, Zoe Laufer, Jennifer Maisel, Rohina Malik, Emilio Rodriguez, Ian Rowlands and Korde Tuttle.
