Settle back and hear true stories about growing up in Mississippi, coming out in Washington, D.C., and experiencing family estrangement, love, and healing. On Friday, October 13, experience the award-winning one-woman show “A Lesbian Belle Tells.” The show is designed to encourage hope from the comfort of a rocking chair, with captivating moments of comedy and triumph over tragedy.

Elizabeth McCain will join a diverse line-up of diverse solo playwrights at the 2017 DC Queer Theatre Festival. The festival, titled “Going Solo,” opens Friday, October 13, 2017 and runs through Saturday, October 14, 2017 at the Anacostia Arts Center in Washington, D.C.

A Mississippi native, living outside our nation’s capital, McCain premiered her award-winning show at the 2014 Capital Fringe Festival in Washington, D.C. She won Best Solo Show, and Maddie Ardillo (DC Broadway World) proclaimed it was “a thrill from start to finish for audiences from all walks of life.” McCain has since taken her show on the road, traveling from D.C. to North Carolina.

In addition to McCain being a storytelling performer, she is also a spiritual counselor, energy therapist, and a shamanic interfaith minister. She believes that sharing stories in the LGBTQ community heals hears and changes the world.
