Festival Staged Reading: Crazy Jezebels

Monday, May 20, 2024 (7:00 PM - 9:00 PM) (PDT)


Crazy Jezebels by Bailey Jordan Garcia

In lieu of heaven or hell, the biblical "crazy women" Eve, Jezebel, Lot's Wife, and Lillith have been committed to a mental health residential treatment program to teach them how to behave properly, but they might have found a potential way out... 

Bailey Jordan Garcia is a queer non-binary playwright based in NYC. Their full-length Pedo Punchers was a part of The Blank Theatre’s Living Room series. Also with The Blank, they became a winner of The Young Playwrights Festival with their piece "What to Expect When You’re Expecting Our Lord and Savior" (a play that also won “Best Play” at the Players Theatre Short Play Festival). They have gotten 4 people’s choice awards with PlayGround-NY and -LA, including two “Best Of the Best Ofs”. They’re also in their second year of Playground-One’s residency program where they’ve written their full-length Is this Beauty (which was a finalist for WaterWorks 2024). They’ve also worked with groups such as Atlantic Acting Studio, Bite Sized Theatrics, Boston Theatre Company, Cry Havoc, Ohio University, and over 30 others! They are also the co-founder of Fresh Binder Productions – a theatre company highlighting transgender and non-binary voices. When they aren’t writing or seeing as much theatre as humanly possible, Bailey can usually be found at Bethesda Fountain, cuddling with their 3-legged pup, volunteering at Brave Trails (an LGBT+ summer camp) or talking your ear off about Angels in America.


The lineup has been announced for PlayGround’s 28th annual Festival of New Staged Readings: Rivals of Mars by Bridgette Dutta Portman (Friday, May 10), Work/Shoot by Matthew Y. Morishige (Monday, May 13), The Passing Storm by Jessica June Rowe (Friday, May 17), and Crazy Jezebels by Bailey Jordan Garcia (Monday, May 20). With themes ranging from the eternal fight against misogyny to the tragedy of ambition, these four plays embody the wide-ranging, provocative, and imaginative future of the American Theatre. All four readings will take place at 7pm PT in-person at Potrero Stage and simulcast online. Admission is free (donations gratefully accepted) with extended on-demand viewing for Festival Sponsors.
