"We are excited to partner with Southern Rep Theatre and look forward to what this relationship will mean for our mission and our residents." - Kim Moss, Executive Director, Lazarus Project



Project Lazarus is a home for people living with HIV/AIDS who have nowhere else to go. Founded in 1985 by the Archdiocese of New Orleans, Project Lazarus provides a beautiful home, tranquil meditation gardens, case management, substance abuse counseling, and educational programming to 23 residents at a time. Originally established as a hospice for people dying of AIDS, today, it is a place to live. Project Lazarus provides residents the resources they need to live successful, independent, healthy, and prosperous lives.


In a remote cabin deep in the woods, an old crone spins a spellbinding tale about her life, her love affairs, and her cursed reputation. Mischievously funny, dark, and just in time for Halloween, BROOMSTICK is the story of one woman who hovers in the shadowy space between good and evil fantasy and reality, and who, some say, may be a little too hungry for justice. BROOMSTICK is written by John Biguenet, directed by Amy Holtcamp, and features Liann Pattison. Performances run October 4-November 2, with previews October 1-3.
