Proud Mary Theatre Debuts with ‘Gay Marriage Plays’

The Proud Mary Theatre Company, South Carolina’s first and only theatre group devoted to LGBTQ+ Stories & Voices, is proud to announce its first two fundraisers, a presentation of STANDING ON CEREMONY: THE GAY MARRIAGE PLAYS.

An A-list lineup of playwrights (Mo Gaffney, Doug Wright, Paul Rudnick, Neil LaBute, Wendy MacLeod & more) offers unique takes on the moments before, during, and after “I do.” Witty, warm, and occasionally wacky, these short one-act plays about Gay Marriage are vows to the blessings of equality, the universal challenges of relationships, and the often hilarious power of love.

The Proud Mary Theatre Company will also announce its debut season of four Mainstage Shows Wednesday at the Coffee Underground, 1 East Coffee St. in Greenville.

The Greenville cast includes Dave LaPage, Kate Roark, Stephanie Ibbotson, Boyd Galloway, Andy Lecture and Anne Robards. Ms. Roark, recent director of Spartanburg Little Theatre’s “Spamalot.” will direct.

In Saturday, Sept. 30, the company will feature an all-female program of one-act plays as well as special preview of its lesbian-themed show that will open in late January.

Tickets to either event are only $10.

The mission of the Proud Mary Theatre Company, a non-profit and non-professional theatre, is to present LGBTQ+ voices and stories in Spartanburg and the entire Upstate region through theatrical plays: compelling dramas, rib-tickling comedies, campy musicals, and local original works and avant-garde pieces that celebrate diversity and tolerance.
