KALAMAZOO, MI — December 06, 2017 — Queer Theatre Kalamazoo ( QTK ) continues its season into 2018 with The Days are Shorter by Corinne J. Kawecki. The Days are Shorter will run Jan. 11-14, 2018 in Kalamazoo, MI.

Produced by Laura Kay Henderson and Directed by Sarah E. MacLean, the production stars Shannon Fleckenstein, Ellen Bennett, Katie Houston, and Paris Rutter. The Days Are Shorter was a finalist in the LezPlay Contest for Pride Films and Plays, Chicago 2016. In 2013, it received a table reading with Modofac Productions ( Chicago ). The Days Are Shorter was a semi-finalist for the O'Neill Theater Center's 2012 National Playwrights Conference. In 2011, it received a staged reading at Chicago Dramatists.

In the story, Julia believes that the answer to all of her problems is youth. She's tried various ways to recapture her youth but her 53 years continue to dog her steps. After many sleepless days and nights, she feels herself being slowly consumed by age and madness.

Magic is inherent in The Days Are Shorter, from Treat's magic act to Julia's creation of a magical life in order to find out who really needs her love.
