Touchstone's annual showcase performance of exceptional, original plays written by Lehigh Valley students during the theatre's Young Playwrights' Lab. At the Festival, celebrate the creative spark that burns within these students, as you witness their words brought to life in truly Touchstone style, with a slew of professional and community artists. Then, help us foster that spark at the Gala, where monies raised support the Young Playwrights' Lab in the following school year. Festivities are held at Zoellner Arts Center.
Join us before the show for a family friendly preshow party with snacks, basket raffle, and a chance to meet the playwrights!
The war in Troy is over – and the Poet saw it all. Back from the frontlines, he shares with us his enduring tale of unquenchable rage, gods and goddesses, bereaved wives and parents. Telling the story of the war, like the war itself, both seduces and ravages the Poet; it emboldens, weighs on, and threatens to overwhelm him. Featuring Lantern favorite Peter DeLaurier and virtuoso musician Liz Filios, An Iliad weaves humanity's unshakable attraction to warfare with the music of the muses, capturing the contradictory conditions of glory and violence with explosive and spellbinding modernity.
The Vagina Monologues is made up of a varying number of monologues read by a varying number of women. Each of the monologues deals with an aspect of the feminine experience, touching on matters such as sex, love, rape, menstruation, female genital mutilation, masturbation, birth, orgasm, the various common names for the vagina, or simply as a physical aspect of the body. A recurring theme throughout the piece is the vagina as a tool of female empowerment, and the ultimate embodiment of individuality.
