Summer Shorts by {Your Name Here} A Queer Theater


As part of The Tank's PRIDE FEST, {Your Name Here} (David Macke, Artistic Director) offers a fun evening of four short plays by queer playwrights that range from a chance encounter in a hotel room to finding love within the arms of a puma to finding something remarkably common with one's own bully.

Summer Shorts features the following four plays; “Edgar and Patrick” by Ken Urban (The Correspondent), “Pocket Universe” by Duncan Pflaster (The Tragedy of Dandelion), “Big Al” by Juan C. Sanchez and “Singer Clashes with Cougar” by Sandra de Helen (Blue Roses). The shows will be performed on Saturday, July 12 and Sunday, July 13 at 5 pm

The Equity Approved Showcase will be directed by Christian Coulson (Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Gayby, Love Is Strange) and will feature Pun Bandhu, Ryan Barry, Blake Daniel, Bianca Leigh, Sarah Lord, Eva Ludwig, Jake Mosser, Kieran Mulcare, Andrew Rincon, Sheilagh Weymouth and Dathan B. Williams*.

The creative team includes Suzan Rogers (Scenic Consultant), David Suarez (Sound Design) and Mike Burke (Lighting Design). Casting is by Judy Bowman, C.S.A.
