Doug Nevin and Michael Urie
In partnership with Rattlestick Theater Present


June 20 - 24
At Rattlestick Playwrights Theater

PRIDE PLAYS is an upcoming festival of play readings at Rattlestick Playwrights Theater to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising. We will be presenting a series of play readings from June 20-24 that capture the prideful spirit of the LGBTQ community, celebrating 50 years of theatrical voices since that turning point. 

You can also expect symposiums of leading lights, emerging voices, and a variety of reflections on what pride means to you. Set against the backdrop of World Pride and the fiftieth anniversary of the Stonewall uprising, PRIDE PLAYS hopes to be a reflection of the queer experience the community has braved in the years since its heroes took their stand.
