ACT RETURNS TO KENNEDY CENTER’S PAGE-TO-STAGE FESTIVAL SATURDAY SEPT 1ST. African-American Collective Theater Helps Close Out Festival’s Opening Night at 7:30 pm LGBTQ lives and concerns once again take center stage on Saturday, September 1, 2018, when African-American Collective Theater (ACT) returns to the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts for the 2018 “Page-to-Stage Festival.” All events are FREE and open to the public. No tickets or reservations are required. Doors open to the public at 7:00 pm in the Center’s Terrace Gallery - where at 7:30 pm, ACT presents “UNPROTECTED Sex” -- continuing its ongoing exploration of the richness, realities, repercussions and rewards of contemporary LGBTQ life . The evening’s program consists of readings of short plays and “sneak peeks” at longer works – all reflecting trials and triumphs along the path to authenticity and affirmation. ACT joins more than 60 D.C.- area theater companies (including Brave Soul Collective @ 5pm) at the Kennedy Center on the opening day of this annual 3-day series of free readings and open rehearsals of plays and musicals in development by local, regional, and national playwrights, librettists, and composers—some with scripts in hand, others almost fully staged. The free performances reflect the dynamic make-up of all corners of the city, whether you are a newcomer or a veteran to theater. This year, Page-to-Stage embraces the Center’s season-long exploration of The Human Journey by tackling subjects such as migration, identity, and discovery.” General admission seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis and opens approximately 30 minutes prior to each event. Please Note: There is no free parking when attending free events. More detailed information can be found on the festival website: http://www.kennedy-center.org/calendar/event/XSPPS#tickets
