Drama Storytelling New work

Raw Sugar and Theatre Corrobora are teaming up to present a theatrical event of two original works that explore the personal, real-life stories of three local female artists.

Act One: Raw Sugar presents FADEAWAY GIRL

Written and performed by Rachel Petrie

FADEAWAY GIRL is the true story of playwright/performer Rachel Petrie’s experience coming to terms with a bipolar disorder diagnosis. From her very first manic episode in 2004 to present day, Rachel shares her personal stories of derailment, discovery, reinvention, and joy.

Act Two: Theatre Corrobora presents THE CRITIC AND THE DRAMA QUEEN

Written by Hailey Colwell. Performed by Aidan Jhane Gallivan and Hailey Colwell

THE CRITIC AND THE DRAMA QUEEN was inspired by the story of real-life friends and co-producers Aidan Jhane Gallivan and Hailey Colwell, a local actor and writer, respectively. The play follows the evolution of a friendship and the scary places it can go when artistic pride gets in the way.
