SHOW DETAILS

Lavender Life will be performed in the 2019 Philly Fringe Festival

“Lavender Life” is a musical cabaret centered around the struggles of the LGBTQ+ community in the 1930’s directed by Molly Jo Gifford and music directed by Kylie Westerbeck. Through the parallel of history and the rise of fascism/divided government with the growing safety concerns for those who identity as a minority, Lavender Life will explore what it means to find strength in community in the face of a weakened nation. We will also be exploring themes like:

  • What does it mean to truly support other people?

  • What does it mean to be an ally?

  • What does it mean to come together in times of confusion and difference? And, how do we generate awareness and conversation?
