A new lesbian-themed play “Olizzia” by John Bavoso is set to premiere this week at Capital Fringe.
When Olivia and Lizzie, two best friends since college, take a vacation together to Rio de Janeiro, they are shocked to find a potential soul mate in each other. After a life-altering night at a rundown hotel, they must confront questions of romance, lust, friendship and identity.
The play stars Alex Johnson, Stacy Mathison, Charles Lee and Michael Schwartz. It will be performed at Fort Fringe — the Shop (607 New York Ave., N.W.) on Sunday at 8 p.m., Wednesday at 9:45 p.m., July 19 at 12:30 p.m. and July 26 at 3 p.m.
