It kicks off tonight for a weekend of short plays celebrating all things femme within the LGBTQ community! It’s Seattle’s lgbtq theater company FANTASTIC.Z THEATRE and it’s their annual short works festival which gives voice to the female experiences for this year’s offering with plays by, for, about and featuring the talents of female artists…thus, this year’s festival theme is also the name of the fest: FEMME!
The festival is being produced at 18th and Union Art Space, 1406 18th Ave, which is shockingly right off of 18th Avenue and Union right at the top of Capitol Hill near the big TV antennas!
There is also a “B-Sides” reading on Saturday afternoon that features four great works that didn’t move on to a full production.
We encourage local theater fans (especially LGBTQ ones) to check it out and support local queer theater.
Some more info!
