POST TRAUMATIC SUPER DELIGHTFUL Coming to Cincy Fringe

New Solo Show Finds Laughter in Healing after Sexual Assault
The Cincinnati Fringe presents: POST TRAUMATIC SUPER DELIGHTFUL: June 2 ­ June 11 

Cincinnati, OH­ – POST TRAUMATIC SUPER DELIGHTFUL is a one­-woman/ half­-clown/ half­monologue/all-feminist critique of the sexual assault crisis on college campuses. The play weaves the lives of survivors, perpetrators, and bystanders into the story of a community struggling to heal after assault. Through clowning, the show surpasses the victim/villain dichotomy and welcomes an open-­hearted conversation about healing.

“Meet your new heroes… An opportunity for communities to come together to laugh, heal, and  learn.” – Marie Claire Magazine

After premiering at the 2015 FRIGID New York Festival to overwhelming audience response, POST TRAUMATIC SUPER DELIGHTFUL has spent the last year touring colleges and festivals around North America.

“POST TRAUMATIC SUPER DELIGHTFUL is a play that demands to be heard at schools, crisis centers, and theatres across the country.” – Theater Is Easy

The team of collaborators behind this play came together to shatter the mold survivors are forced to fit into and explore how assault affects an entire community. Rape doesn’t happen in a vacuum. How is everyone hurt by one assault? Is it safe to laugh together? Can laughter create connection? Who is accountable? In Post Traumatic Super Delightful, the personal is political, the political is personal. And the person is a clown.

Playwright/performer Antonia Lassar is joined by director Angela Dumlao (award­-winning  director in the 2014 EstroGenius Festival; assistant director of Naked Angels’ SeaWife),  dramaturg Kati Frazier (Former Literary Director of All For One; playwright of Patronage, Fall  2015 at Random Access), scenic and costume designer Sam Garcia  (Glutton For Punishment,  EstroGenius Festival; dramaturg for STEIN­-DRAG at Target Margin Theater Lab), lighting  designer Darielle Shandler (Assistant Production Manager for The Civillians’ Pretty Filthy), stage  manager Olivia Hull, production assistant Molly Jones, cinematographer Sierra Garcia, and  educational programming coordinator Ashley Renee Thaxton .
