FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CONTACT: GADFLYTHEATRE [at] GMAIL.COM Gadfly Theatre Productions Presents I’m Never Going to Earth Again: 60 Queer Plays in 90 Queer Minutes By: A big old queer collective February 8, 2019 (Minneapolis/St. Paul) -- What can you experience 60 of for $20 in 90 minutes? Plays! At least you can with “I’m Never Going to Earth Again: 60 Queer Plays in 90 Queer Minutes”. You won’t believe your eyes as you become immersed in this fast-paced amalgamation of one-act plays, monologues, chants, improv, song, and dance. Tantalizing and vulnerable works of sci-fi, magical realism and fantasy allow us to tell you what is important to us. Walk a mile alongside us with the realism and absurdism of family, mental illness, queer community, grief, love, and zombies. Whether you are an alien, a euphemism, a healer or the God of Death, you will find something titillating to stimulate your senses. I’m Never Going to Earth Again: 60 Queer Plays in 90 Queer Minutes allows for several Minneapolis’s marginalized voices taking center stage. Cassandra Snow directs and writes for this eclectic anthology with the acting talents of Jada Pulley, Joey Ripley, Jex Arzayus, Zealot Hamm, Lyssa Sparrow, Ming Hsu and Gadfly Co-Artistic Director Immanuel Elliott. Most of the cast served as writers for the 60 Queer Plays along with Eli Effinger-Weintraub, Gabriela Santiago, and Kassha Lisinski. Lisinski serves as sound designer as well, with Jada Beulah stage managing this rich piece of theatre. This show is urgent and exciting and this writing team and cast have brought their best and wickedest work yet. This wickedly inclusive journey features a cast of queer, non-binary, and transgender people who are… out of this world. Let us help you transcend the limits of your mortal coil. The play will be at Strike Theatre on March 15th-17th and 21st-24th. All shows are at 7:30 PM except Sunday matinees, which are at 3:00 PM.
