HOLLYWOOD FRINGE

World Premiere
IN THE VALLEY OF THE SHADOW
Written by Katherine Cortez | Directed by Elina de Santos

NOW EXTENDED FOR ONE MORE PERFORMANCE ON
JULY 9th at 7:30PM

An apocalyptic event in an LGBT nightclub changes everything; love becomes hate, hate becomes love.

A world premiere play by Katherine Cortez, inspired by a collision of events: growing up in an Orlando with no openly gay nightclubs; witnessing family friends hiding in shadows and losing lives to AIDS before it had a name; completing the AIDS LifeCycle ride; and The Pulse night club shooting on the eve of LA PRIDE.
The play reflects on how fundamentalist belief systems can give a perverse inspiration to the execution of hate in the name of "love." Exploring our duality as human beings – a paradoxical species capable of both violence and its opposite – the play challenges audiences to examine our darker parts in order to integrate the shadow and move towards the light, transforming hate into love.

Special performance and reception on the one-year marker of the tragedy, June 11th, the day of the PRIDE celebration and #ResistMarch.

Written by Sheila Callaghan | Directed by Larry Biederman

We Are Not These Hands follows the chaotic journey of two fifteen year old girls, Moth and Belly. They reside in a dystopian society where filth is abundant, the addiction to consumerism and porn is incessant, and violence is normal. But, they have each other— a relationship bound by struggle, love, and a slew of inside jokes. Their dream is to get “cross the river” to the capitalist society where Belly’s family lives and where an ostensible future exists, but this proves more difficult with every effort. Then, they meet their key to the golden city—Leather, an outcast that has just moved from the capitalist society. As the girls pursue Leather, he takes a liking to them, and the journey veers in unconceivable directions.
