Gadfly Theatre Productions Presents
The Final Frontier Festival
A One-Act Geek Fest Fitting Our Queer and Feminist Mission

May 12th, 2014 (Minneapolis/St. Paul) -- Join us as SIX Sci-Fi and Fantasy
one-act plays that fit Gadfly Theatre Productions’ queer and feminist
mission take over Nimbus Theatre this June!  Going where few LGBQTIA* and
feminist artists have gone before, The Final Frontier Festival takes recent
conversations about the way marginalized people are treated in geek culture
and puts a progressive but still wildly entertaining response on stage. The
six shows featured are:


   Who Killed Captain Kirk? by Paco Madden; a murder mystery set at a Star
   Trek convention.

   A play about a nearly perfectly designed fembot becoming self aware
   entitled The Wolves Above by Alyssa Zaczek.

   Love Bot by local playwright Matthew A. Everett, in which a gay and a
   lesbian astronaut are charged with repopulating the world.

   A one-woman show about returning home chock full of magical realism and
   steeped in Christian mythology called Honest to God by J.C. Pankratz.

   Falling Awake by Alexis Scheer, where the characters are grappling with
   grief in a way that transcends space and time.

   A hilarious and spot-on takedown of platonic ideals and various geek
   mythologies--the show is Gargle McFury Slays Gender Essentialism by Alex

The Final Frontier Festival is broken into two sets that run in repertory
June 13th-22nd at Nimbus Theatre in Northeast Minneapolis.

Featuring the work of over 30 queer, feminist, and allied directors,
playwrights, actors, and technicians, Gadfly’s dedication to inclusive and
relatable--or “uniquely universal” work continues with this festival. While
set in other worlds, laced with magic, or taking place far, far in the
future, these six shows still contain characters and materials our regular
audience will love--namely likeable queer and feminist characters and
messaging that is progressive, PLUS a fun exploration of the growing
crossover between geek, queer, and feminist cultures.

Gadfly Theatre Productions hosts a FREE salon for the public for each of
it’s productions. This one will be held at Boneshaker Books on Wednesday,
June 4th at 6:00 P.M. This event is free, features complimentary
refreshments from local vendors, guest speakers,, and face time with Gadfly
artists and company members themselves.

This show is brought to you by all of our donors and sponsors, but
especially the Minnesota Jaycees of Shakopee.
