The hit dramatic play The Answers to Apathy is returning to the stage after its original production in 2015! Embrace your past and accept the present — or your future may haunt you. Rainey Grander has just received news of a life-changing event, and when old friendships and new relationships collide in the present day, the course of everyone's fate lies in the hands of confronting their hopes, their fears, their dreams, their secrets, and their ways of coping with their own mortality.
The Answers to Apathy is a beautiful and inspiring story about unique relationships and people navigating their lives after they have all experienced a profound loss, which is also their gain. The play tackles every human emotion, including love, resentment, forgiveness, passion, happiness, ambition, and sorrow. This dramatic and sometimes humorous play centers around six people and their lives before and after an incident and how all are adversely effected in different ways while reflecting on their own choices.
In the aftermath of Liv's untimely death, her boyfriend Adam, her best friend Cat, and her sister Sally negotiate everything from a raucous wake to releasing her worldly goods to the Jewish Women's League.
Running the gauntlet of the five stages of grief, the thirtysomething trio compete for who ranks highest on The Grief Meter, reveal hidden unspeakable truths, and fail to agree on epitaphs and the allocation of earrings. Ending up in cupboards, on trains, and in the emptiest Indian restaurant in England, Butterside Down explores how the young are ill-equipped to lose each other. And whether, when you've lost the love of your life, your sense of humor can keep you alive.
In a small Boston suburb, a single schoolteacher is struggling to get by when the wealthy father of one of her students surprises her with a financial proposal that could change her daughter's life. Suddenly, their worlds collide in ways that open up questions: What truly separates the haves and the have nots? Is it wrong to seize an incredible chance, even if the circumstances seem questionable? Loosely inspired by a passage from The Great Gatsby, this timely new play by the author of The City of Conversation probes the troubling relationship of finance and educational opportunity in American life today. Directing is Tony Award winner Doug Hughes (Doubt).
Daybreak, written by Joyce Van Dyke and directed by Lucie Tiberghien, is a world premiere play highlighting Armenian-American history. Set in three time periods, Van Dyke's drama is inspired by the true stories of two female friends who survived the Armenian genocide. Using memory, dreams, and music, Daybreak carries the story of these women into the 21st century in a celebration of the human spirit's endurance.
Ilia Volok's reimagined one-man show garnered enormous praise during its West Coast tour and garnered great success during its East Coast tryout at New York's Beckman Theatre that this cutting-edge play will now open 2018 off-Broadway.
Poprishchin, a low-ranking civil servant, yearns to be noticed by the beautiful daughter of a senior official, but she never does. Slowly, yearning becomes obsession and then insanity. As his mind unravels, we see, unfolding in front of our eyes, a timely parable of class wars, the quest for individuality, and the pervasive indifference for the common person.
Set in Montezuma, Georgia, and New York City in 1941, this new work by Adrienne Kennedy — a multi-Obie Award winner and one of America's greatest living dramatists — is a heartbreaking and nail-biting memory tale of segregation, theatrical yearning, and doomed love. The action, driven by lyrical parallel monologues and a chilling tour through a storeroom of charged images, braids together the indignities of Jim Crow, rising Nazism, sexual hypocrisy, Christopher Marlowe, and the lingering shadow of a terrible crime.
Jeremy Irons and Lesley Manville (Ghosts) reprise their roles in Sir Richard Eyre's acclaimed production of this Eugene O'Neill classic.
Following a critically acclaimed engagement in 2016, No-No Boy returns for a limited run that aligns with the Day of Remembrance. Set after World War Two as Japanese-Americans return to the West Coast, the play tracks draft-resister Ichiro Yamada following his release from prison. He struggles to come to terms with the consequences of his choices while other members of his community try to get back on their feet after a war that has uprooted them all. Ron Nakahara directs this drama adapted by Ken Naraski from John Okada's groundbreaking novel.
Theresa Hanneck is a celebrated author and veteran feminist warrior; Msemaji Ukweli is a promising young writer who is quickly becoming the leading cultural critic on race, class, and gender for a new generation. When a heated exchange between the two women goes viral, Theresa finds herself ill-equipped to manage her message in the era of 140-character tweets — especially against a rival whose time may have come. A collision of ideals within the feminist movement propels JC Lee's riveting drama from breathless start to surprising finish.
In 1949, Dr. Jacob Bronowski installs a secret, alarmed room in his house. Fifty years later, his grandson discovers his secrets, unearthing echoes from across six million years of human history, told from the perspective of a century in which every year is a revolutionary year. Inspired by Yuval Harari's international best-seller, Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind.
In a strange relationship that lasted 14 years and was conducted exclusively through letters, Pyotor Ilyich Tchaikovsky and his patroness Nadezhda von Meck were united through the invincible power of a disembodied love in which they both found refuge. Plagued by doubts about the greatness of his music, tormented by the fear that his homosexuality would be discovered, and trapped in a marriage to a woman who was eventually committed to an insane asylum, Tchaikovsky found in von Meck an "invisible angel." Tchaikovsky: None but the Lonely Heart honors their unique relationship in part through music, including the composer's Piano Trio in A minor.
A world premiere with a cast of four, The Thing With Feathers feels almost like a thriller as Scott Organ masterfully spins the tale of an underage teenager seduced by an older man on the internet. Things are not as they seem, however. What appears to be a classic predator tale unravels into a maze of secrets, lies, and unexpected truths. As a culture, we are being asked to examine our actions, specifically where power is involved. This play brings that conversation home.
A Walk in the Woods, Lee Blessing's insightful two-character play set during the end of the Cold War, tells the tale of a series of meetings between two diplomats, American and Russian. The play raises deep questions: What can we do to heal the world? What is the value of human connection? How can we best bridge fundamental differences? In today's political climate, Blessing's story has chilling resonance.
In X: or, Betty Shabazz v. the Nation, witnesses give testimonies that bleed into flashbacks, and the play, blurring the real and the half-remembered and giving voice to subjective truths, pieces together its version of the events leading up to the day of Malcolm X's assassination at Washington Heights's Audubon Ballroom. His wife, Betty Shabazz, prosecutes Malcolm X's former ally Louis X (inspired by now-Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan), whom she adamantly felt was involved in the assassination plot against her husband. Louis X resists her interpretation, calling upon his own witnesses and casting suspicion upon the FBI and NYPD, for whom Malcolm X's bodyguard Eugene Roberts was an informant. Gardley's play, in its courtroom limbo setting, examines the growing adversity between Malcolm X and the Nation of Islam, the constricting weight of white supremacist society, and the potential of the behemoth institutions that uphold it to distort any story.
The play hinges on the recollections of the widowed Shabazz in the traumatic aftermath of the assassination. (Left to raise six children alone, she eventually went on to earn a doctorate degree in higher education administration and become Director of Institutional Advancement and Public Affairs at Brooklyn's Medgar Evers College.) With Shabazz's memories weaving the story together, X: or, Betty Shabazz v. the Nation centralizes the experience and voice of a figure who had to fight from within the margins of the margins. As one secretary character in the play puts it, "We're women, secretaries, Negroes, and we're Muslim. If there is a low on the totem pole, put us there, or better yet, put us under the pole. No one can see us anyway. We're whispers." In Gardley's play, such "whispers" become booming presences as Shabazz vehemently seeks justice.
