ALBEE FEST

Mon, Apr 3 - Sat, Apr 15 (full schedule below)

Tickets - $15 per night or  $30 FEST pass

Firehouse Theatre presents ALBEE FEST as a tribute to one of America's greatest playwrights, Edward Albee. ALBEE FEST takes us from the sunny side of drama with THE SANDBOX and FINDING THE SUN, to disgruntled family struggles in MARRIAGE PLAY and COUNTING THE WAYS, to the indignant rantings of THE MAN WHO HAD THREE ARMS, and coming back to the beginning with THE PLAY ABOUT THE BABY. These six little known works by the master dramatist will be performed in script-in-hand readings with a company of some of Richmond's most talented actors within a festival environment designed by Tennessee Dixon and Bill Miller and directed by Jon Kretzu, Deejay Gray, and Zack Owen. Two companion events will round out the festival -- a special Edward Albee cabaret with Starlet Knight and Anthony Dowd, and Strange Bedfellows: Albee Edition. Additional festival events include Albee's performance installation KNOCK! KNOCK! WHO’S THERE?! and cocktail parties after each performance.
