Surrender of Lord Cornwallis by Trumbull

Effigy

a new play by Laura Anthony and L.A. Mars

 

About

Effigy is a history piece that examines three periods of unrest in the United States through the lenses of race, revolution, and queerness: the American Revolution, the Civil War, and the ongoing civil rights movement of today. The triptych comments on the indelible bonds of history and its lasting effects on our society, and looks without a traditional American admiration at the figures of the past whose influence we still see, feel, and rebel against today.

The show has an approximate run time of 150 minutes, and there will be a 15-minute intermission. Please be advised, Effigy contains scenes of violence, explicit language, sexual situations, and use of racial slurs. The production contains strobe lighting effects and gunshots.

If you can, please donate.

Effigy is being independently produced by creators Laura Anthony and L.A. Mars. We are not taking paychecks for the hours put into developing the piece, but we believe that our cast and crew should be compensated for their time––always, but especially now in light of the current pandemic.

Our main crowdfunding campaign is hosted on Indiegogo. Additionally, Effigy has a Patreon page for those who would prefer to donate a small amount of money per month, and all proceeds from our merch store will go towards production costs.

Our primary focus is providing stipends for our cast and crew, but there are other places we need to spend as well. This covers everything from costumes to volunteer insurance. Effigy is working off a zero-based budget: every penny of our goal for crowdfunding––and we know, it's not a small number––has its own job.
