The Dorset Theatre Festival Presents: “Queen of the Night”
Running August 10-September 4, 2021 at 8:00pm
Queen of the Night by travis tate
Recently divorced Stephen and his millennial son, Ty, set out on a camping trip to their old stomping grounds in southeastern Texas. As an important family event approaches, father and son attempt to survive the woods, and one another, braving the bears and reckoning with the wilderness of their past. Despite low cell signal and high emotions, these two characters try their best to connect in this timely play that illuminates as it entertains. In this honest and poetic comedy about family, playwright travis tate explores masculinity and queerness through the lens of multi-generational Blackness.
Queen of the Night is produced by Dorset Theatre Festival. CLICK HERE to learn about the Festival’s 2021 Sponsors.
