Queer Theatre Kalamazoo Presents
In collaboration with OutFront Kalamazoo

PlaywrightNow: A #StillProud Event


While QTK holds fast in the belief that our pride should be celebrated on a daily basis, when OutFront Kalamazoo announced their #StillProud series, we thought, why not host a virtual theatre festival that features 7 queer playwrights writing a play in just 24 hours, rehearsing them in only 4 hours, and then presenting them to a live audience ALL over digital mediums? So that’s what we did!


This event will be livestreamed via Facebook Live on this event page. If you’d like to receive a notification when the event starts, set your status for this event to “Interested” or “Going”.

This event is free, though we are accepting donations (links below).



Here’s how it will go:

⚪ June 19th, 8 AM – Playwrights receive videos of two assigned actors and start writing a brand new 10-minute play

🔴 June 20th, 8am – The new 10-minutes plays are due

🟡 June 20th, 10am – Directors and actors join the playwrights and rehearse over Zoom

🟢 June 20th, 2pm – WE ARE LIVE with 7 never before seen plays, all manufactured within 30 hours
