Seventy-Nine playwrights from across the world wrote several short plays in response to the traumatic events in Orlando on June 12, 2016. For two nights only, four directors and 12 performers from the local Hampton Roads Area will stand together to remember the lives of those that were lost, and raise money for the forces that seek to educate, remember, and celebrate our vibrant and diverse community. Proceeeds from this production will be donated to The LGBT Center of Hampton Roads & The Orange Ave Project. The latter of which will use the funds to travel, record, and collect the stories of those affected by the events at Pulse, and use that material to create a performance art production that will celebrate the lives of those that were lost by rememebring the days they were given to us rather than the day they were lost.
