Academy Theatre Presents Tapas IV: The Great Divide

Hapeville, Ga. –Academy Theatre proudly presents Tapas IV: The Great Divide. This is a play festival comprised of a collection of ten minute short plays based on the theme of divided relationships in their many forms, and nearly all are premieres! We’re featuring some of Georgia’s great creative talents for the festival include Fracena Byrd, Rob Raissle, and Zach Roe.

“Tapas is always a fun and challenging project,” says Fracena Byrd, “It’s a great way to bring new actors, directors, and playwrights into our community, and build new connections with old friends.”

The Great Divide lets playwrights address where we are today, in politics, personal relations, and many other ways,” says Robert Drake, Artistic Director. “Interestingly enough, talking about what divides us may bring us together! Many great artistic talents have been brought together to put this work on stage! I am so eager for people to see this show and revel in the great work that’s being done!’

These shows contain adult themes and language.
