Announcement :: Gender & Sexuality

Sexuality Project (Lambda Project)

The Lambda Project is an ongoing attempt to tell the stories of the Rainbow Pride Flag. Stories of sexuality (pink), life (red), healing (orange), sun (yellow), nature (green), art (turquoise), harmony (indigo), and spirit (violet). It is never too late to contribute your real-life experiences to this growing body of work and by telling your story you'll inspire other people and hopefully change the way we view the world and ourselves. Go to our website at

As part of an ongoing effort to create new works of theatre and promote involvement in the arts, Bread & Water Theatre is currently asking for the community to contribute their stories of sexuality to this yearâ??s "Rainbow Theater Festival". These stories will be molded into a series of monologues and skits, which will be a part of this yearâ??s "Lambda Project" performance.

Some may be familiar with this style of theatre from the works of other well-known artists. Studs Terkel, an actor and radio host, has spent his life traveling all over the world interviewing people. These interviews have been compiled in "Working: People Talk About What They Do All Day and How They Feel About What They Do", "Hard Times", and more. In 1985 Terkel won the Pulitzer Prize for "The Good War". The monologue story has also been a part of making The Vagina Monologues an international phenomenon and a rallying cry for women everywhere. Eve Ensler, the playwright behind the success of The Vagina Monologues, spent years traveling the world interviewing women for this very important piece of theatre.

Rainbow Theater Festival was first started in 1999 by a group of Nazareth College students as a medium to showcase plays with homosexual themes, foster tolerance and awareness for the gay and lesbian community and as a way of giving back to the greater Rochester community.

Founded in 2000, The Bread and Water Theatre, under the artistic direction of J.R. Teeter, develops theatre that speaks to our new and evolving world through new works of dramatic literature and adapted classics. In the next year, BWT will be applying for non-profit status and aspires to be a major force in American theatre, providing audiences with challenging contemporary drama and innovative community outreach programs.
