Winter 2014 Season

Feb 27-March 1: "Gendermat" by Mark Dunn and "Night of Fights" by the Ensemble



Directed by Austin Meyer
"This is tag team theatre with a bite. At the end of a relationship, two characters meet in the basement laundry room of an apartment building. Four actors step in and out of the roles of Carrie/Cary and Frances/Francis to create the story of four breakups: a man leaving a woman, a woman leaving a man, a woman leaving a woman, and a man leaving a man. The gender permutations reveal the simple fact that rejection and lost love are universals. In parting, the characters learn important truths about themselves and move, not without bitterness, toward a fresh start." - Summary Courtesy Samuel French

"In a seemingly perfect, well-to-do Victorian home, proper gentleman and scientist Dr. Givings has innocently invented an extraordinary new device for treating "hysteria" in women (and occasionally men): the vibrator. Adjacent to the doctor's laboratory, his young and energetic wife tries to tend to their newborn daughter—and wonders exactly what is going on in the next room. When a new "hysterical" patient and her husband bring a wet nurse and their own complicated relationship into the doctor's home, Dr. and Mrs. Givings must examine the nature of their own marriage, and what it truly means to love someone." - Summary Courtesy Samuel French

"At age 21, Orson Welles was already directing and starring in productions for the New York arm of the recently formed Federal Theatre Project. For his next show Welles wanted to direct a musical, choosing Marc Blitzstein’s The Cradle Will Rock, a piece with strong socialist sympathies at odds with current, rising Republican sentiment in the US.  Jason Sherman’s play depicts the backstage antics of this important period in American theatre that precipitated the closure of the FTP. Jumping straight into the action, his dialogue negotiates the necessary exposition with a keen sense of rhythm and he balances the serious complexities of theatrical censorship with deeply human issues of obsession and commitment." - Paul Vale, TheStage.co.uk
