Drag Brunch with Hors and Friends for Franklin County Pride at Hawks & Reed // SATURDAY
You can support Franklin County Pride and your local drag queens on Saturday morning in downtown Greenfield with a special drag brunch featuring the always magnificent and wonderfully hilarious performance of Hors D’oeuvres. D’oeuvres also recently penned an op-ed in the Daily Hampshire Gazette countering assertions by another op-ed writer in the publication that drag performances are misogynistic. She’s a true gem of a person in our little Happy Valley. Whether you’re straight or part of the LGBTQIA+ communities, there’s a lot to love when it comes to the solidarity and all-inclusiveness featured at D’oeuvres’ shows. Hawks & Reed Performing Arts Center, 289 Main St., Greenfield. 10 a.m. $30.
Breastless at the Majestic Theater // SATURDAY and SUNDAY
I saw Breastless a couple of years ago and was completely blown away. Laurel Turk’s play about her own experience getting a double mastectomy was an incredible display of what theater can do and how emotion can be transmitted, even without a conventional narrative plot line. Turk, who lives and works in Franklin County, combines humor, fear, song and dance, and an overall feeling of overcoming adversity in her triumphant play. The Majestic Theater, 131 Elm St., West Springfield. Saturday, June 15, 2 and 8 p.m. Sunday, June 16, 2 p.m. $24/$26. (413) 747-7797.
