Dear Diary LOL “Hit of Ice Factory 2018” Encore Run!
September 23, 2018 @ 12:00 am
An event every day that begins at 12:00am, repeating until September 29, 2018
Dear Diary LOL is critically-acclaimed comedic play born verbatim from the real-life tween-teen diaries of the show’s creators. This hilarious ensemble of women invites you to cringe, laugh, and cry at their most earnest desires, deepest fears, secret shames, and terrible poetry written as coming-of-age girls in the late 90s/early 2000s.
Playing an Encore Run as “The Hit of Ice Factory Festival 2018”
Wednesday September 26th – Saturday September 29th at 7:30PM
Dear Diary LOL explodes its source diaries with moments of direct address, music, dance, and physical comedy, delivering an audience favorite that is as “relatable as it is funny…Beneath its hot-pink surface beats a tender heart and the universal queries of adolescence” (Theatre is Easy). Created and performed by Antigravity Performance Project. Directed by Francesca Montanile Lyons and Michael T. Williams.
Stage Biz raved, “It’s the funniest show I’ve seen in ages…the audience went ballistic at curtain call – and rightly so, this one’s a keeper.” Exeunt Magazine said, “We absolutely need more theater like this” and Opplaud cheered, “Five Stars! This is one trip down memory lane that’s definitely worth taking!”
We’ve had the privilege of performing for young people in the past three productions runs we’ve had in September 2017, January 2018, and July 2018. As an ensemble, we’ve connected with and heard from some of these young audience members after the shows. Quotes from previous young audience members include:
“I liked the play it made me feel good about myself!”
“The play was inspirational and gave true facts about teenage life.”
“I learned some things about pregnancy and friendship too!”
Antigravity considers the show to be PG-13. Budding female sexuality is a theme of the work. There’s talk about sex and desire, and some strong language is occasionally used. These 3 moments constitute the raciest of it: A back of the bus scene where the actors are facing upstage and mime a hand job, this dialogue: “We hook up all the time, he touches everything. Well I’m not gonna go into detail just I’ve given him a bj he ate me out and we had dry sex and we’ve done everything before that,” and this dialogue: “And then the guys were being gross. They were all describing how a girl masturbates & how to finger one! Ugh! And then they talked about porn shows!”
