Running Time: In the Valley of the Shadow runs approximately 65 minutes with no intermission.

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.
