The 2013 D.C. Queer Theatre Festival presents six short plays by award-winning playwrights beginning May 30, 31 and June 1 at Flashpoint Theatre (916 G St., NW).
The plays deal with challenges and joys that the LGBT community in D.C. experience. They range from campy comedies to deeper explorations of love and loss. The goal of the festival is to promote underrepresented voices as well as a diversity of artists. On the last day of the festival, a post-show panel will be held where leaders of area theaters and LGBT organizations discuss the plays and the challenges facing the LGBT community. The playwrights included the festival are David-Matthew Barnes, Marjorie Barnes, Marjorie Conn, Steven Korbar, Duncan Pflaster, Janis Holm, Mario Baldessari and Jon Jon Johnson.
Tickets are $16. Proceeds benefit the D.C. Center. For more information, visit dcqueertheatrefest.org.
