Fountain Kicks Off 2019 With FEMFEST Reading Series

The Fountain Theatre kicks off 2019 with its Fem Fest reading series. First up: Lauren Gundersons provocative Natural Shocks gets four weeks of staged readings at the Fountain, eachweekend spearheaded by a different theater company. In addition to the Fountain, Rogue Machine,  Echo Theater Company and Lower Depth Theatre Ensemble will cast performances of this darkly hilarious tour-de-force by the most-produced playwright in America.

Based on Hamlet's "To be or not to be" soliloquy, Natural Shocks bursts to life when we meet a woman waiting out an imminent tornado in her basement. She overflows with quirks, stories, and a final secret that puts the reality of guns in America in your very lap. All of the readings will be directed by Ebony Repertory Theatre associate artistic director Andi Chapman.

Jan. 12 Feb. 3:
Saturdays at 8 p.m.: Jan. 12 (Fountain), Jan. 19 (Rogue Machine), Jan. 26 (Echo), Feb. 2 (Lower Depth)
Sundays at 2 p.m.: Jan. 13 (Fountain), Jan. 20 (Rogue Machine), Jan. 27 (Echo), Feb. 3 (Lower Depth)
