BLURRING BOUNDARIES, A New Play Festival Amplifying Marginalized Voices, Set To Open This Month

2022 delves into the idiosyncrasies and intersectionality that make up the multifaceted community.

BLURRING BOUNDARIES, an annual play festival amplifying marginalized voices, runs August 10 - 21, in two programs performed in rep at Tada! Theater. Featuring new, original, and unconventionally- themed short plays, from the hilarious (the pros and cons of cinnamon lube) to the urgent (trying to fit "in" to coming "out"), BLURRING BOUNDARIES 2022 delves into the idiosyncrasies and intersectionality that make up the multifaceted community.

Program A A trans woman runs, heels in hand, to save a child. Two BFF's struggle to stay true to themselves in love and out of the binary. This time around Orlando has a gentleman suitor of his own, and Rosalind's gender reveal does not disappoint. How would you save democracy in a headline?

Week 1: Wed, August 10 & Fri, August 12 at 8 pm; Sat & Sun, August 13-14 at 4 pm.
Week 2: Thur, August 18, Sat, August 20 & Sun, August 21 at 8 pm. Run Time, 90 minutes

Program B A young girl stuck in a boy's life makes a desperate plea. Prometheus answers a crisis call, while a bride in a tux visits her younger self. To abort, or not to abort? A mother and daughter clash, in the words of the bard. White fragility shakes a teen romance to the brink. Ovid's gender tale Metamorphoses unfolds with long time loves on their big day.
