New One-Act Play "Access"
Access by Rev. Geoff Kohler
Friday, May 17 & Saturday, May 18 at 7pm 
The Trust Performing Arts Center on Market Street
Lancaster, PA 
"Access" is a new, one-act play by Geoff Kohler about people who have differences on faith, sexuality and hope, but who must live and deal with each other. Two performances will be held on May 17 & 18 at The Trust Performing Arts Center on Market Street. Ticket prices are $15 and are available at
Rev. Geoff Kohler of Lancaster wrote "Access" because he wanted to explore the story of a middle-aged, Christian woman who leases an apartment to a pleasant, young woman whom she later discovers is a lesbian. Along with the son of the landlady, the two, are thrust into making personal choices, as they blend with legitimate, legal rights. An opportunity for a brief discussion between the actors and the audience will be available at the end of each performance.
