BLOOD MOON takes place in the early 1980s in New York City.  It is based on a TRUE STORY.  The play begins when Manya, 19 and a college senior arrives with her sole surviving family (Uncle Gregory) at the swank New York apartment of Gregory's friend Alan who is immediately attracted to Manya, and she's intrigued by him: an older man who's suave, cynical and charismatic.  The New York Times said of the play “it is cleanly and clearly plotted right up to its haunting conclusion.”

A brand new solo show written and performed by Gillian English

Four years ago, some charismatic Australians talked Gillian English into playing Aussie Rules Football. A Shakespeare nerd by trade, Gillian had never played a sport before in her life, but how hard could it be?
Somewhere in between tackling Amazonian women and battling through the bruises; footy became one of the most important parts of her life. 
Team support, beer pong, fit men, short shorts, sunshine and parties. 
Life as a member of an Aussie Rules team is glorious.
By 2014, Gillian had won three consecutive Grand Final Championships. 
She was playing for the Midnight Suns in the AFL World Championship in Melbourne Australia. 
Then everything changed.

Lois Moore was a thriving middle class teenager who had been sheltered from the hauntings of racial discrimination.  Her mother was bi-racial and had only exposed her children to the finer qualities of life which didn't include any segregated disadvantages.  Carrie who had worked for the Moore's as a housekeeper for over twenty years, seemed to know more about the family than Lois's mother Elise.  That was until Nel showed up, Carrie's granddaughter whom she hadn't seen since 1949. There was something strange going on but you couldn't quite put your finger on it!

An evening of seduction, servants and a machete.

Zemwerk is delighted to present a full-bodied evening with the ever-sparkling Madam Carte Blanc and all those who surround her. A trilogy of one-act plays, supported by two monologues, all written by Stella Maria Perry, take us into a strange and terrible world. Join us on March 8th at the Producers Club Theatres in New York City. The one-acts have all had their own premiers but have never before been performed together.

First on the menu is "Carte Blanc", featuring the talented Schuyler Mastain (Polonius in "HMLT") as Amador, Sarah Davie as Libby, and Kendra Slack as Madam. "Carte Blanc" will be directed by Deborah Mangrum-Price. "Carte Blanc" was first produced at the Cabrini Repertory Theater in 2014.
