LSU Theatre will presents its annual OUTWORKS Festival, an evening of six new, previously unproduced one-act plays with gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer themes from Wednesday through Sunday, April 28 through May 3, in the Studio Theatre in the LSU Music and Dramatic Arts Building, Dalrymple Drive, Baton Rouge.
Daily performances will begin at 7:30 p.m. with an extra matinee at 2 p.m. on Sunday, May 3.
This festival, originally created by Chris Krejci and now in its 10th year, takes more than 100 submissions annually.
OUTWORKS 2015 is directed, designed, performed and produced entirely by LSU students.
Productions in this year’s festival are “Perfect 10” by Kent Forsberg, “Ten Exposures” by David Lewison, “Faking Glory” by Allie Costa, “Trick” by Rich Espey, “Wake-Up Call: The X Commandments” by Deborah Ann Percy and Arnold Johnston, and “Hoover in Love” by Steve Gold.
“Every year we try to challenge the expectations of audiences while expanding the boundaries of LGBTQ theater as a genre,” OUTWORKS 2015 coordinator, Alexis M. Skinner said.
OUTWORKS contains language and mature situations that are not appropriate for young viewers. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased only at the door. For more information, call (225) 578-4174 or visit theatre.lsu.edu.
