SONG OF BERNADETTE JONES By Maura Campbell Comes to The Fresh Fruit Festival

The 2018 Fresh Fruit Festival 16th Season at The Wild Project, 195 East 3rd Street presents The Song of Bernadette Jones by Maura Campbell performing July 10 @ 6 pm; July 14 @ 4:30 pm; July 15 @ 5 pm and is a New York Premiere.

Award-winning playwright Maura Campbell's lyrical tale of genderfluid teen Carolyn, whose beloved sister Mary is obsessed with the martyred Saint Bernadette (possibly living in their Ouija board). Their supernatural experiments yield lessons on love-but is love more powerful than death? Burgeoning queer identity, memories of dazzling Alaskan snowscapes, and a healthy dose of magical realism, loom large in this tale of salvation and forgiveness.

Fresh Fruit Festival was the creation of two long established LGBT community arts groups:

New Village Productions, established in 1989, had produced ten LGBT short play Festivals including an international short play Festival in conjunction with the Vineyard Theater and Gay Games 1994. New Village Productions was committed to diversity and the celebration of difference, both in selection of material and by inclusion of disabled and minority artists.

All Out Arts' mission fulfillment is constantly evolving. To this end we produce All Out Music (which initiated the Out Music collective of LGBT musicians and Composers) and All Out Youth - our fledgling performance-art program for at-risk LGBT youth. Our OutWords series of events for LGBT writers includes panels, a regular Slam LGBT Poetry contests and Out-Wright, our Developmental Reading Series for playwrights. We maintain a drop-in, stress-free environment for creative people to test new ideas titled Creative Industries Network. Throughout, our motto remains Fighting Prejudice Through The Arts.
