ADD ON A MAINSTAGE SHOW
Catch the fully produced Theatre Company world premieres of Rattlesnake Kate and In the Upper Room, both of which were featured readings at the 2019 Summit.
Rattlesnake Kate by Neyla Pekarek and Karen Hartman
7:30pm – Wolf Theatre
100 years ago, frontierswoman Kate Slaughterback fought tooth, nail and rifle to save her son, killing 140 rattlesnakes in one courageous battle and becoming a global sensation. Discover her story that is larger than life and stranger than fiction in this badass new musical by Neyla Pekarek (former member of the Grammy-nominated folk-rock band The Lumineers) and playwright Karen Hartman.
In the Upper Room by Beaufield Berry
7pm – Kilstrom Theatre
Meet the Berrys, a multi-generational Black family in the 1970s. Their lives orbit around Rose, a strong-willed matriarch whose superstitions and secrets drive her relatives nuts. Fed up, they each make plans to break away. But by standing their ground, they may lose what has held them together all along.
Loyalty, spirituality and colorism are all at play in this dramatic dark comedy, based on the real family history of playwright and novelist Beaufield Berry.
What are the Orange and Blue Tracks?
Festival Weekend offers two tracks — orange and blue — which are simply the order in which you’ll see the readings. Both tracks include all readings and events, but due to the sizes of our theatres, we have to split the size of our audience into two groups that see different plays concurrently. If you’re attending the Summit with a group, make sure you buy tickets to the same track.
