FABUM will premiere five 10-minute plays in a one-night festival at the historic Arts Club of Washington on the evening of Friday, December 9th. Preview and open rehearsals to be announced soon. 

The festival explores the notion of 'a strong woman', and how that is interpreted by playwrights from all over the country, from every walk of life. Of the well-over 100 (123 to be exact - great number, yes?) plays received between July 15th and August 31st, these are the finalists that FABUM will premiere later this Fall:


The Kiss by George Sapio
On Victory in Japan Day, 1945, Glenn, a sailor returning from WWII, grabs Edith, a nurse, and kisses her. Edith protests then argues with Eisenstadt (the photographer who captured the image) and Glenn about the propriety of Glenn's action and about what makes art. Edith challenges Eisenstadt to take a second picture and reverses the positions of herself and Glenn.   



Stories of a Nuer Refugee, or Raven Hansen's Totally Epic Senior Project by Morgan Trant Kinnally

Raven, a senior in high school, interviews Mary, a Sudanese refugee. As Raven asks probing questions about her past and talks frivolously about her relationship with her mother, Mary hides the strife her mother Nyamal went through during the war. Ghost Nyamal encourages Mary to share what she overcame to be where she is today. 


Eat Your Candy by Patti Veconi
Three retirees, Janet, Nora, and Carol, test the freedom of being "innocent little old ladies" by stealing candy and encouraging each other to do what they want to do with their lives. 
 

The Nude by W.L. Newkirk
Lisa's nude portrait of her friend Claire goes on exhibition. Lisa's nervous about her career and Claire's having some serious body issues. Claire mistakes passerby Brian for an art critic and is pleased when he compliments her and the painting. The real critic Jeffrey shows up, pans the painting, and offers a better review in exchange for sex... 


W.A.S.P.s by Zanne Hall
Based on true historical events, Sunny, Frankie, Maggie and Ziggie are Women Airforce Service Pilots during WWII. They swap stories in the mess hall about the discrimination they've faced, how they've adapted and adjusted Army regulations to suit women, and how even in the shadows, their achievements as aviators overshadowed the men around them.
