FronteraFest Short Fringe 2019
Cap Stargazer and the Amazon Women of Mars, by Stephen Bittrich. A parody of old time radio theatre—in this case, the genre is the space adventure series like Flash Gordon.
Please Stay, by Gloria C. Adams, Max Perry, and Teresa Johnson. Please Stay. Normal culture dictates that even on your worst day, when your brain has fallen out and you’re at the end of your hope, when someone asks, “How are you?” you must say, “Fine.” But through honesty, authenticity, and connection, three poets survive themselves by talking it out—if you can say it, you can survive it. We’re glad you’re here; Please Stay. Content Warning:: this show discusses experiences of self-harm, suicidal ideation, and the struggle for survival. Directed by Gloria C. Adams, produced by Teresa Johnson.
The Gods of Disdainful Judgment, by Sandy Maranto. A monologue delivered from the perspective of a woman who's at odds with her daughter over what is and what isn't sexual assault but who also falls into an unexpected epiphany. Performed by Austin actress Cathie Sheridan; directed by Karina Dominguez.
Clap Cabaret: The Improvised Cabaret!, by Zach Muhn and Cami Alys. This fully made-up cabaret performance features singing, dancing, puppets, proclamations, pageantry, and a magical performance from our mysterious diva! We promise that laughter will issue forth from your chuckle-hole in mind-shattering waves, and cause you to, you know, clap!
