Long Island City, NY, August 2013: After winning Best Play in the Venus Theatre Festival, “After Eternity” will be produced as part of the Secret Theatre’s unFringed Festival. Performances are Friday, August 16th at 9PM; Saturday, August 17th at 8:00PM; Sunday, August 18th at 3:00PM; Wednesday, August 21st at 8:00PM; and Friday, August 23rd at 9:00PM. Written by Eugenie Carabatsos, directed by Harry Poster, and starring Suzanna Bornn and Ryan Pater, this play takes place somewhere in eternity where a woman has willed her very own palace into existence. Her world is turned upside down when a guest suddenly appears and they are forced to live together as the world around them disappears.
Playwright Eugenie Carabatsos explains that the play is about, “the stripping down of souls. What happens when everything around you starts to disappear? What are you left with? What do you try to hold on to?” “After Eternity” was previously produced by the True False Theatre as part of the Venus Theatre Festival in Washington Heights, NY. This production was lauded for its Absurdist qualities and was named Best Play for the festival. The lead actress, Suzanna Bornn, who will be reprising her role in the unFringed Festival, was also nominated for Best Actress.
