THE UNEXPECTED PLAY FESTIVAL

FEBRUARY 2-5, 2020

LADY PARTS
February 2, 2020

Nella, a mid-level talent agent, spends her days talking actors into accepting stereotypical roles, and her nights talking her husband into looking up from his cellphone. When a medical diagnosis reveals that she might be dead inside, Nella begins to demand more out of life (with the help of Eleanor Roosevelt, of course). Lady Parts takes a funny and heartwarming look at what it means to finally cast yourself in the leading role.

BRANCHES ETCHED ACROSS THE SKY
February 3, 2020

The Woods siblings have had their share of grief and disappointment, but through it all, one thing remains true: nothing can break the bond they share. From first loves, to first jobs, to grappling with a mother who can only love from afar, these three siblings are forced to grow in ways they never expected. Branches Etched Across the Sky is an exploration of family, illness, loss, and the transformative power of the imagination.

JAMIE’S VISIT
February 4, 2020

When Jamie brings Mae to his childhood home to visit his parents, it becomes clear that his father, David, is ready to break the silence of a decades-old secret that has been ripping the family apart. The truth has repercussions for everyone, but only David knows the way to move forward from where they all stand. Jamie’s Visit takes us all on an absurd and shocking Edward Albee-esque thrill ride with no one spared.

WE THE VILLAGE
February 5, 2020

In late ’90s Atlanta, a popular drag queen named Frankie and his twelve-year-old, latchkey neighbor, Redd, form a special bond. When suspicions arise among Redd’s mother regarding the friendship, however, anonymous threats are made, and Frankie abruptly ends the friendship and moves away. Twenty years later when Redd finds Frankie, their reunion proves to be something they both needed. We the Village takes a warm and funny look at unconditional love and acceptance.
