UNC School of the Arts: Fourth Year Thesis: Neaptide - NOTE CHANGED DATES

( Fri., Jun. 4, 2021 - Sun., Jun. 20, 2021 )

Online, , , NC


A comedic play about the negative stereotypes and treatment of lesbians in the mid-1980s, Neaptide - considered a seminal LGBT+ theater project - follows a lesbian who keeps her personal life private amidst her struggle for custody of her daughter after a divorce. British dramatist Sarah Daniels has relentlessly probed the fault lines of contemporary society, tackling issues like power relations between the sexes, the position of women, lesbianism, pornography, male violence and sexual abuse.

Neaptide is directed by drama senior Ticket Knowlton. Born and raised in Irmo, South Carolina, Knowlton is the first gender-nonconforming director at UNCSA.

> “Neaptide” will be livestreamed at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, June 18 and 19, and at 4 p.m. Sunday, June 20.
