VIOLET SURPRISE: LEZ BEAUS SHORT PLAY FESTIVAL

Facebook page

You can take the "gal" out of Galentine's Day, but wouldn't you rather take the gal out ON Galentine's Day?

VIOLET SURPRISE: LEZ BEAUS is a short play festival that celebrates lesbian love through the ages.

Whether it's a time-honored tale of girl meets boi, or a pulpy piece about women in the shadows who whisper their love, we're seeking character-driven romances that explore connection and affection, emotion and devotion.

For the purposes of this play festival, Sapphrodite is the goddess of love.

Other than that, we're open to anything: firsts, lasts, in-betweens; fix-ups, mix-ups, break-ups, make-ups; gal pals, lady friends, lover girls; historical romance, contemporary romance, romantic comedy.

So put your heart in the "write" place and submit to VIOLET SURPRISE: LEZ BEAUS, curated and produced by Iris Sowlat and Allison Fradkin and presented February 14-16, 2020, at The Martin in Chicago.
