"After Eternity" in the unFringed Festival at the Secret Theatre
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 and directed by Harry Poster, 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.
Carabatsos’ work has been produced across the United States and internationally. Her award winning play, "Pine" will have its world premiere at the Trustus Theatre in August 2013. Her work has won the Trustus Theatre Festival, the Mountain Playhouse Comedy Contest, the Venus Theatre Festival, and the Edward Hopper House Two-on-the-Aisle Competition. Her plays have been produced by the Trustus Theatre, Alumnae Theatre, the Mirror Theatre, the Silver Spring Stage, The Complete Theatre, the Venus Theatre, Playwrights’ Round Table, the Pan Theater, Manhattan Repertory Theatre, the Secret Theatre, the Edward Hopper House, the Midwinter Madness Festival, Love Creek Productions, and the Short + Sweet Festival.
