On June 12, 2016, a lone gunman opened fire on the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, FL, killing 49 LGBTQA people. It was the largest civilian act of mass gun violence in the US. That Uppity Theatre Company and R-S Theatrics will commemorate this act of violence against the LGBTQ community on Friday June 16 at 7:30 pm with a free performance of 10-15 of the plays from the After Orlando collection.

After Orlando is a collection of short plays, roughly 3-8 minutes, in length that look at the experience of the massacre from multiple perspectives. Launched by No Passport and Missing Bolts after the massacre, it has since been produced at over 75 venues internationally and will be brought to life in St. Louis by local directors including Kathryn Bentley, Adam Flores, Sarah Holt, Fannie Belle Lebby, Joan Lipkin, Christina Rios, John Wolbers and Blake Willoughby, amon
