Allan Baker's Work to be Staged in Guam and in California, 2013 - 2014
Austin gay playwright Allan Baker's ten minute play, ...last and always, will soon be performed in Guam and in Santa Cruz, CA.
The University of Guam will produce the play from Nov. 14th to 23rd at the Fine Arts Theater as part of their One Act Festival of student-directed short plays.
Throughout the month of January, 2014, the Actor's Theatre of Santa Cruz, CA will produce ...last and always as part of their 19th annual "8 Tens @ 8" ten minute play festival. Based on the last scene of Allan's powerful one act 9/11 play, Five Minutes, this play tells the story of a gay couple...one in the World Trade Center and one at their home in the city...as they say goodbye.
These will be the fifth and sixth productions of this play. In June, 2009 it was produced by NativeAliens Theatre Collective as part of New York City's Pride Festival. In February, 2011 it was produced by Turtle Shell Productions in New York City as part of their "Eight Minute Madness Playwright's Festival". In May, 2012 it was produced by Blue Slipper Theatre of Livingston, Montana as part of their first ten minute play festival. And, in June, 2012 ...last and always was produced by Buffalo United Artists Theatre of Buffalo, NY as part of their "Takes Ten: GLBT Short Play Festival".
