The gist, from the organizers:
What: Weldon Rising is an edgy and unpredictable play with apocalyptic themes, the tale of a circle of gay characters who grow estranged from each other after witnessing a hate crime.
There will be a speaker panel after the show Friday, April 10 to discuss hate crimes in our Asheville community, and talk-backs every night except the last show, April 18.
Who: Scapegoat Theatre Collective is a local, non-profit theatre committed to exciting, relevant theatre in a community based model.
When: Thursday nights through Saturday nights, April 9-11 and 16-18. Shows at 8 p.m., tickets are $15. Available at Malaprop’s.
Where: BeBe Theatre, 20 Commerce St.
Why: Proceeds benefit Youth OUTRight, a support and empowerment group for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered and questioning youth.
