New York's preeminent LGBTQ Arts Festival returns for another season of exciting work on stage - on film - and on the air. THE FRESH FRUIT FESTIVAL 2024 Main-Stage will premiere two dozen new works exploring the LGBTQ experience.

In Goddess of the Hunt, grieving Charlie Windsor meets gregarious Diana Black-White and they become instant friends. Did we mention Charlie is not a poor man? A detail his longtime friend, Ed thinks might be at the root of Charlie's friendship with media personality, Diana. Dark secrets, questionable loyalties, warped realities, dysfunctional family dynamics, and social media info overload are on display like fine artwork in this taught thriller that will leave you laughing … until you scream — or is it screaming until you laugh?

Appearing as Charlie is Broadway veteran, Kevin Ligon. Kevin appeared on Broadway in Hello, Dolly! starring Bette Midler and as Max Bialystock in The Producers as well as star turns in On the Twentieth Century; Bullets Over Broadway; The Phantom of the Opera; Sister Act; Finian's Rainbow; Young Frankenstein; Kiss Me, Kate; 1776; The Secret Garden and Nicely Johnson in the 1992 Broadway/National Tour of Guys & Dolls.

The cast includes Mary Powelson as Diana; with Benjamin I. Cardona, Robert-Louis Maisonett, and David L. Carson 

The production is directed by Rosie Corr, fresh from her position as assistant director for the recent Broadway musical, Harmony.
