Situating Lesbian Desire: Staged Readings of The Climb by C.A. Johnson & The Gulf Audrey Cefaly

Situating Lesbian Desire is a live staged reading of C.A. Johnson’s The Climb and Audrey Cefaly’s The Gulf, two plays that investigate gender, sexuality, and place.   

The Climb synopsis:  
Marge is a photographer, and her wife, Tiffany, has been her sole photographic subject for seven years. When Tiffany goes on a month-long hiking trip to get away from it all, both women are forced to question everything from their professional and personal past to the true meaning of a moment captured in time. 

The Gulf  synopsis:  
The divide between Kendra and Betty mimics the very world that devours them: a vast and polarizing abyss. On a quiet summer evening, somewhere down in the Alabama Delta, Kendra and Betty troll the flats looking for redfish. After Betty begins diagnosing Kendra’s dead-end life with career picks from What Color is Your Parachute, their routine fishing excursion takes a violent turn. The Gulf contains strong language, sexual content, and domestic violence. 

“The Gulf (Full-Length)” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc. 

April 23, 12 p.m. - 2 p.m. The Climb 
April 23, 3 p.m. - 5 p.m. The Gulf 

While the two plays are in conversation with one another, audience members do not need to attend both plays.
