What will a Mom do for her child?

The Pink Unicorn
a comedy about gender identity and big hair
written by Elise Foster Edie, “Best Storyteller” winner 2013 United Solo Theatre Festival

a Staged Reading featuring Mishia Edwards

The Pink Unicorn is an award-winning solo theater piece, which tells the story of a Christian widow, living in a conservative Texas town, whose life is thrown into turmoil when her teenaged daughter announces she is “gender queer” and starts a chapter of the Gay and Straight Alliance at the local high school. Produced originally in Washington by DogTown Theatre, the play was invited to perform at the United Solo Theatre Festival in New York City, where Elise won the Best Storyteller award. It has since performed elsewhere in the US and Canada.

Tckets are only $8.00 for this LAB Theater Series production.

“Extraordinary...The Pink Unicorn need(s) to be on Broadway, in the West End, touring the world with the powerful message of this brilliantly wise and inspiring work”
(NY Theater Now)

“…any outline of the story in a short review can’t possibly give you the richness and depth of Edie’s play…5 stars.” (The Edmonton Sun)

“…very funny…sharp and poetic. Edie’s knack for vivid description creates a fully realized world…” (Saskatoon Star Phoenix)

“…a wonderfully real, fleshed out story of mother’s journey from horror to bewilderment to empowerment…(a) smart and beautifully realized play.” (Talkin’ Broadway Regional Reviews/Minneapolis-St Paul)
