Little Red Theatre Company began two years ago with Like You, a new play, written and directed by Mac Scheldt. Like You completely sold out for all shows at the University of Minnesota in April 2019. Co-directors of Little Red, Mac Scheldt, and Katlyn McLane, since worked to bring new queer works to the Minneapolis theatre community and beyond. As two queer theatre-makers, these pair have already begun to create a space for new voices in theatre since the company's debut in 2019.
In spring 2020, the company reacted quickly to the 2020 Minnesota Fringe Festival cancellation and placed a call out to all theatre artists for tiny plays (plays under 600 words) that are in and around life before COVID-19. Bringing positivity and a creative outlet to the global theatre community, Little Red received well over 100 submissions from 20 states, the United Kingdom, Ireland, New Zealand, and Australia. The collection of 25 tiny plays titled Tiny Plays From Quarantine was exclusively published on our website, directly following a virtual reading festival in July 2020. Most recently, Tiny Plays From Quarantine was virtually produced by Wellesley College's Upstage in December 2020.
Looking forward, the co-directors of Little Red Theatre Company are preparing for the Minnesota Fringe Festival in Summer 2021, where they will co-write and co-direct a new play from a queer perspective.
