LAB! Theatre will be hosting their annual live readings of erotic fiction featuring original stories, fan fiction, songs and more on Valentine's Day.
The event will be held at the Downbar at Linda’s Bar and Grill on Franklin Street and will begin at 10 p.m.
Summer Lawrence, a sophomore majoring in communications and dramatic art, is co-producing the event this year with friend and colleague Emma Scaggs. Lawrence said that she got involved with the event through working as a board member for LAB! Theatre.
“I went to it last year and it was hilariously amazing, so when they were like, ‘Hey, would you like to produce this?’ I was so on board,” Lawrence said. “Last year someone did a really cute story about the life of a condom wrapper and it was the most hilarious, funniest thing ever. It’s all comedic and no one takes it seriously — it’s just to have a fun time on Valentine’s Day.”
Scaggs, a sophomore majoring in biology and dramatic art, is also on the board for LAB! Theatre and said that she was excited to take on the challenge of co-producing the event. Last year, she performed her own live reading of a High School Musical fan fiction she wrote called, “You are the Music in Me.”
