On the six month anniversary of the Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando, Chaskis Theatre presents After Orlando — a global theatre action in response to the Florida attack.

It’s a playwright-driven project comprising over seventy short pieces specifically written and curated by emerging and established international voices in theatre, including Neil Labute, Winter Miller and Anders Lustgarten.

Chaskis Theatre present an evening of a selection of these powerful plays and poems, plus live music and special guests, in memory of the lives lost and the lives still affected.

“Now, more than ever, we must come together and champion the values we hold, using the language we know best,” commented Chaskis Theatre.

“We stand up for equality without exception and empathy across all borders. Cultural, ethnic, and sexual diversity are the riches of our global community. When these values are threatened we fight back with Poetry and Action, Love and Community.”

After Orlando is a Chaskis Theatre production in conjunction with Missing Bolts Productions, NoPassport Theatre Alliance & Press and Park Theatre. The cast will include Madalena Alberto, Maddy Hill and Huw Parmenter.

All profits from the event will be donated to London LGBT charity Stonewall, who campaign for acceptance without exception.

After Orlando plays at Park Theatre on 12 December, 2016. 7:30pm.
