outdoor festival micThat’s What She Didn’t Say, a Los Angeles non-profit, will present its first Outdoor Voices Festival, a two-weekend theater festival from September 16–18 and 23–25, featuring productions that tackle issues typically deemed challenging, taboo, or “off-limits.” Festival founder, Bonnie Joy Sludikoff, stated “We’re excited to be furthering our mission of creating healthy conversations about taboo topics with this year’s inaugural Outdoor Voices Festival.  We hope this will be the beginning of several conversations for those coming to see these compelling and innovative shows.”

Official selections include three solo shows, including a world-premiere, and two ensemble cast productions scheduled to take place in Hollywood at The Lounge and The Hudson Theatres. The festival will feature talk-backs with the cast and production team following each performance.
