This year we are thrilled to see two plays in development. Toilet Talks, a semi-autobiographical play by Liz Thomsen about a mother and daughter, has had a table read, and is now reading for a staged reading. Audiences will get to experience the journey not only of the characters but also of the plays themselves as they move through the development process. Each play considers the life experience and showcase voices not often heard.
The York Theatre production of YANK! received 7 Drama Desk nominations (including Best Musical as well as best music, book and lyrics) as well as nominations for Best Musical from the Outer Critics' Circle, and Lucille Lortel Foundation.
Queen Day, presented by the Indianapolis Men’s Chorus, is returning to the Indy Fringe stage for a limited run from January 25–27. Back by popular demand, the show blends the hard edge of rock and roll and punk with the drama of musical theater and features the music of Queen and Green Day. The show received rave reviews across sold-out performances during IndyFringe this past summer, so make a New Year's resolution to be part of the excitement!
SATURDAY 7:30PM SOLD OUT
"and Tell Sad Stories of the Death of Queens..." written by Tennessee Williams in 1955, was ahead of its time.
Transgender, Aging, Homophobia, and Survival are all themes in this poetic, at times, brutal play.
The script was not produced in Williams' lifetime, due to his blatant treatment of a subject matter that was not spoken of in the decades before now.
The result is a powerful punch of a play, performed and directed by four of Indy's finest talents.

In 1991, David Boyle took over his ailing father's job as church organist and choir director. This solo show is a workplace confessional that explores 25-plus years of sometimes hilarious, sometimes poignant interactions with the congregation.
Rock musicals hold a special place on the American stage. The Indianapolis Men’s Chorus presents selections of some of our favorites, including Queen’s “We Will Rock You” and Green Day’s “American Idiot.” Join us for an evening that blends the hard edge of rock and roll and punk with the drama of musical theatre.
