SEASON 14: REVELRY
Marie Antoinette and the Magical Negroes
by Terry Guest
Liberté, égalité, fraternité, ou la mort! (Liberty, equality, fraternity, or death!), echoes the rallying cry of activists fighting through militant resistance, peaceful protest, and collaborative action to overthrow oppressive governments and corrupt, inequitable systems. Set against the opulent background of 16th century Versaille and the French revolution, Marie Antoinette and the Magical Negroes delves deep into the history of race and revolution in America. This high-fashion, club-swirling, time-jumping theatre extravaganza asks what is needed to keep the revolution alive for centuries to come.
Unmarked: Stories Told
Coming July 2022!
Unmarked: Stories Told is a collaborative project between Single Carrot Theatre, St. John’s Church, and residents of Waverly and the surrounding communities. Unmarked will commemorate 41 unmarked gravesites of African Americans from the latter half of the 19th century in the cemetery of St. John’s Church in Waverly. Unmarked is working with historian and local resident, Jessica Douglas, to uncover as much historical information as possible about the individuals interred and life for Black Americans during the Reconstruction Era. St. John’s Church will build a commemorative garden to honor the space. Single Carrot Theatre will work with 3 local playwrights to create theatrical texts based on this research to be performed at the unveiling of the commemorative garden. Unmarked will commemorate the lives of those interred in the cemetery, acknowledge wrongdoings of the past and present with the goal of healing and strengthening community ties today.

Audiences are invited to help tell the humorous and moving story of a seven-year-old’s experience holding onto hope while grappling with a suicidal mother
Is Edward Snowden Single?
by Kate Cortesi
February 18- March 5, 2022
Mimi and April are best friends. And actresses. And totally hot. And talented and smart and so brave, duh. When self-absorbed Mimi is faced with a choice to live with integrity, what decision will she make? Edward Snowden tells her “it takes a lot of courage to be selfish,” or maybe she imagined that. Frolic in the reckless joy, drunken nights, and rites of passage of millennial youth. How long can it last, and at what point do we have to let go?
Also in the works:
A new play about climate change
More Drunk Classics
A cabaret or two
