The 5th Annual BFF Binge Fringe Festival of FREE Theatre, the only FREE Fringe Festival in the nation, will be a little different this year. We're sure you know why. Despite the challenges of this worldwide pandemic, we embrace an optimism for the future, continuing to produce theatre that aims to connect us, celebrate our strengths and differences, and enrich our lives.
What's on today? Heather Keller's CHEMO BARBIE at 6:30pm PST. In 2016, Heather Keller, a healthy young vegan runner, was diagnosed with breast cancer and her life changed forever. This is her heartbreaking, inspiring and ultimately uplifting story. Winner, 2017 Hollywood Fringe Encore Award. Join Heather for a post-show Zoom Q&A, too. We're sad and disappointed we are not able to invite audiences into our theatres and know that live-stream can never replace the human connection that comes from shared space that is so intrinsic and vital to theatre, but safety and health come first. We look forward to seeing everyone in person at BFF 2021.
And since we're live online this year, we can even touch the lives of friends on the East Coast and beyond. Thanks to generous grants from the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Department of Arts and Culture, the City of Santa Monica and the Santa Monica Arts Commission, and Playhouse PALS, BFF 2020 will bring you a host of free events online as BFF artists present a series of shows that will have audiences of all ages raving with laughter and tears.
