Clayton State University Assistant Professor of Theater Patricia Henritze’s 10-minute play Destiny
, which premiered at the EstroGenius Festival in New York last November, has been chosen to be part of the Georgia State University LGBTQ Short Play festival this coming July.
The GSU Players and University Theatre at Georgia State will be presenting three nights of short LGBTQ plays, from July 25 to July 28, specifically plays not previously produced in Georgia. The plays will be given a minimal production, using mostly student actors at the Alumni Hall Theatre in Dahlberg Hall on the GSU Campus.
, written by Henritze, takes place on a stoop outside a wedding reception in a time of change, of hope and confusion, and features
a disheveled young bride and her reluctant maid of honor pondering the questions of life: Why wear panty hose? Is there more beer? Is our life a series of random events? Or is it destiny?
The EstroGenius Festival (www.estrogenius.org
) is Manhattan Theatre Source’s annual celebration of female voices, and one of New York City’s largest women’s arts festivals. Described by the EstroGenius website as anchoring the EstroGenius Festival, the Short Plays Series presents the New York premieres of a series of thought-provoking short plays.
