Last Night

(This play was commissioned by Theatre Lab at Florida Atlantic University)

After a shooting at a lesbian bar, as an act of resistance, Mia opens up the bar the next night. Together with bartender Rory, Rory's girlfriend Leslie, and a student named Sara they unpack what it means to queer today, the battles we're still fighting, and where to find joy.

    I truly loved the irregular rhythms, human humor, and vivid characterization of this piece. Lynett here crafts not only a story populated by characters who have potent, subtle arcs, but also utilizes the art of live theater as a place of meditation, dialogue, and community. The characters all finish the play in different places than where they started out, but do so with such nuanced and fine brushstrokes. The conversations about queerness articulate clear and complex truths with a tenderness and sympathy for both the characters visible and the specters that haunt the bar.

    This is a fast play - fast dialogue and quick turns; you never dwell in the seriousness, but yet, it still grips you. Would be great to see in production - really enjoyed this read!
