'All The Lonely Women' Selected for Global Forms Theater Festival 2022
BY William Hutton, May 9, 2022
A new play co-written by alumna Inés Braun ’17 has been selected for the 2022 edition of the Global Forms Theater Festival at Manhattan’s Rattlestick Theater.
All the Lonely Women is a queer fairytale about the strangeness of dating during a pandemic. Lola, a photographer from Argentina, decides to immerse herself in New York City’s dating scene. It’s been a long time since she’s been in love: work and her temporary visa have kept her from seeking new relationships. As the pandemic rages, Lola’s quest for romance intensifies, and her dating life takes her to places she never could have imagined. Infused with magical realism, Braun’s play, co-written with Leigh Flayton, explores the poignancy of love and longing during a time of isolation and separation.
The Global Forms Theater Festival is an annual theater festival dedicated to uplifting the work of international and immigrant theater artists living in the United States, and abroad. The festival comprises a series of performances, videos, documentaries, workshops, and panel discussions, as a means of exploring ideas around humanity, freedom, home, and isolationism.
All the Lonely Women runs the weekend of June 2—4, 2022.
