‘Lavender Roses’ a message of love

A live theater piece that is neither political nor religious in the traditional sense and yet is being sponsored in part by three faith communities, that has been moving audiences in Northern California for 12 years, and that has an important message to deliver with humor and music, is being performed Friday, Nov. 17, in Grass Valley.

It is “Lavender Roses,” a series of vignettes of the life experiences and spiritual journeys of seven lesbians who wrote it and act in it.

The Rev. Sandra Fairbanks of the Sierra Center for Positive Living is the moving force behind bringing “Lavender Roses” to Nevada County.

“This performance,” she said, “gives a different message, one of love and unity and, to me, truth. They extend their message heartfully and without making anyone wrong.”

The performance is at the Elks Lodge, 109 S. School St., Grass Valley. A reception with a no-host bar and music by Music in the Mountains’ Paul Perry begin at 6:30 p.m. The performance begins at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets for $10 may be purchased in Nevada City at Mekka Café, Harmony Books and the Nevada City Postal Company; in Grass Valley at BriarPatch and Booktown Books; or at the door.

The sponsors are Grass Valley and Nevada City PFLAG, Marriage Equality USA Nevada County, the Sierra Center for Positive Living, the Unitarian Universalist Community of the Mountains and Unity of the Gold Country.
