Rainbow Jubilee is a series of three events that Casa Italiana put together with its theater company in residence KIT to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising. The events will feature LGBTQ theater respectively from Italy (February 25th), the US (March 25th) and from the rest of the world (April 15th): three events of live performance to discover how much LGBTQ topics have been portrayed on stage and by what means.
This event will feature a reading of thirteen 10-minute plays from Turkey, Italy, and the US, selected by an international jury. The audience and a committee will vote the best three that will receive a staged presentation during the In Scena! Theater Festival opening night at Casa Italiana on April 29.
