OutWrite, Theatre Prometheus & DC Queer Theatre Fest will present the fruits of the 2017 A Queer One Page Play Competition for one night only upstairs at Ten Tigers Lounge on Wednesday, February 7th, 2018.  The six winning plays will be put on alongside a performance by Regie Cabico of his solo show Faith, Hope & Regie.

Tickets can be bought through the venue here.  Please note that this is an intimate venue.

The six plays are:

  • Slur by Kate Bishop
  • Message from ‘The Legba’ by Rashid Darden
  • Reaction by Sophie Herreid (the 2017 OutWrite LGBTQ Literary Festival Crowd Selection)
  • Hispanos, Latinxs, Indígenas, y Culeros by Xemiyulu Manibusan
  • I Am Proud by Zachary Rosen
  • Goodnight Kiss by Kiera Whalen

“We’re so proud to present the work of these talented playwrights to the public,” said OutWrite Community Chair Dave Ring, who organized the competition in conjunction with support from Theatre Prometheus.  “We’ve never done anything like this before but the energy around the both competition and the upcoming performance has really been something special.  I’m so grateful to everyone who’s been a part of it.”

The plays will be directed by four DC-based directors, selected by Theatre Prometheus and DC Queer Theatre Fest:

  • Lauren Patton
  • Caitlin Partridge
  • Jon Jon Johnson
  • Aiyi’nah “SimplyNay” Ford

The winning plays were selected by a panel of local judges on the basis of “originality, representation, and relevance to the competition’s LGBTQ focus.”

The judging panel consisted of:

  • Tracey Erbacher, Artistic Director of Theater Prometheus
  • Lauren Patton, Associate Artistic Director of Theatre Prometheus
  • Matt Torney, Associate Artistic Director at Studio Theater
  • Kirsten Bower, Literary Director at Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company
  • Lonnell Butler, Programming Coordinator at the Emerging Arts Leaders Symposium
