Twelve Atlanta theaters come together this month for the NAOMI WALLACE FESTIVAL, a citywide celebration of one America's best-regarded but least-famous playwrights, whose work has been called enigmatic, erotic and pointedly political. Beginning OCT. 19, PushPush Theater presents three Wallace works in rotating repertory, including In the Heart of America and A Gulf War Drama. Other theaters are set to participate in the weeks to come. Plays and poems will be read and performed at Actor's Express, Georgia Shakespeare Festival, Horizon Theatre and several others, with Theater Emory and Synchronicity Performance Group offering full productions of The Trestle at Pope Lick Creek and One Flea Spare, respectively. Emory University screens Wallace's film Lawn Dogs OCT. 23. PushPush Theater, Oct. 19-Nov. 17. $12-$15. Tues.-Sat. 8 p.m.; Sun. 7 p.m. 404-892-7876.
