AFTER ORLANDO is an international playwright-driven theatre action including over-seventy playwrights from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Africa and Australia. Plays have been specifically written and curated in response to this tragic event and will be read at over 40 venues across the country and in the UK throughout the fall.

PlayMakers Repertory Company will partner with Triangle theater companies Little Green Pig, Black Ops and the Kenan Theater Company to proudly present a staged reading of AFTER ORLANDO, an evening of short plays in response to the shooting at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida. The reading is presented in association with Missing Bolts Productions Inc. (Blair Baker & Zac Kline artistic directors) and NoPassport Theatre Alliance and Press (Caridad Svich, founder).

The reading will be free and open to the public and will feature short works by Jacqueline E. Lawton, Caridad Svich, Lindsey Ferrentino, Katie Pearl, Oliver Mayer, Jordan Tannahill, Korde Tuttle, Matthew Paul Olmos, Rohina Malik, Anders Lustgarten, Migdalia Cruz, Brian James Polak, Jennifer Maisel, Dipika Gua, Neil Labute, Ian Rowlands, Joan Lipkin, Amina Henry, Zac Kline and Sung Rno.

It was also a perfect way to engage with area theater companies, building partnerships with other artistic leaders in the Triangle as fitting of my (relatively new) post as Associate Artistic Director.
