The Pink Unicorn
Date to be announced soon!
The award-winning Proud Mary Theatre Company presents this inspiring one-woman play by Elise Forier Edie, which was just produced Off-Broadway with Tony-winner Alice Ripley (Next to Normal). Trisha Lee's life and faith as a Christian widow in a conservative Southern town is suddenly upended when her 14-year-old daughter Jolene becomes “Jo” and makes national headlines by starting a Gay-Straight Alliance chapter at their high school.
The Pink Unicorn stars Upstate actor Kelly Davis and Esteemed Greenville director, actor and educator Anne Tromsness.
Tromsness is a frequent actor and director at The Warehouse Theatre and faculty member at The Fine Arts Center of Greenville County Schools, and a passionate, longtime ally and advocate for LGBTQIA rights. In 2014 she was awarded the SC Equality Community Champions Award for the Upstate.
Originally from New York, Davis (Helen Bechdel in Proud Mary Theatre’s musical Fun Home in June 2019) has worked with companies such as Theatre for the New City, NYC Fringe Festival, Astoria Performing Arts Center, Rising Sun Theatre Company, and Emerging Artists Theatre, and locally with the Mill Town Players, Centre Stage, and Upstate Shakespeare Festival.
The Pink Unicorn made its Off-Broadway debut in 2019, and was originally produced in Ellensburg, Washington by DogTown Theatre in 2013. The Pink Unicorn has been performed throughout the U.S. and Canada including a run at United Solo Theatre Festival in New York, where Edie won Best Storyteller.
Additional donations gratefully accepted at the door.
