Selected Projects - Theatre
Developed by Laura Anthony and L.A. Mars, Effigy is a play that examines three periods of unrest in the United States through the lenses of race, revolution, and queerness: the American Revolution, the Civil War, and the ongoing civil rights movement of today. Effigy was accepted into NY Summerfest 2021 and FringeArts'Philadelphia Fringe Festival 2022. The world debut took place at Theater for the New City.
A Very Great Mischief
A queer spin on Cyrano Bergerac and Twelfth Night in the farcical style of Oscar Wilde. Written by emerging playwright Laura Anthony (they/them), this play tells the story of two British families turned upside down by the discovery that homoerotic tendencies are not exclusively male, no matter what the laws of Great Britain might declare. A Very Great Mischief premiered at Theatre for the New City and showed internationally at NZ Fringe Festival and Brighton Fringe Festival.
Black Sheep is a play inspired by the story "Black Sheep" by Italo Calvino. It tells the story of a modern-day graduate class as they grapple with the life story of Georg Salzmann, a German book collector who rescued the works of ostracized writers such as Heinrich Mann, Erich Kästner, and Stefan Zweig.
