Rock WILK, playwright and performer, is combing the city for fifty survivors of gun violence who are willing to share their stories with the general public.  This search is the root for the campaign, ‘50ShotIn10Days’, coinciding with the performances of his new play, Brooklyn Quartet, which deals with many subjects, including race, privilege, relationships, and the Sean Bell shooting by the NYPD on November 25, 2006. 

The ‘50ShotIn10Days’ campaign symbolically represents the fifty shots that were fired at Sean Bell, killing him and wounding two of his friends.  Each ‘50ShotIn10Days’ participants’ story will be documented and summarized.  “‘50ShotIn10Days’ will tell not only the details of each shooting, but will also give us a window into who these fifty people are; to their

Open: 10/08/15- Close: 10/24/15 MACBETH (OF THE OPPRESSED)
Set in the near future, the days of political correctness have forced a prudish Queen Duncan to employ generals of all races and sexual orientations into her army. Yet these times are still filled with the nepotism and prejudices of the past and General Macbeth struggles to be seen just as competent as his straight counterparts, but with the conviction and support of his husband and the predictions of greatness and power bestowed upon him by a trio of enslaved minority witches, he goes down a dangerous path of betrayal, greed and murder.

Open: 03/15/15- Close: 03/15/15 Othello
To kick off a season that explores gender warfare, victim shaming, racial bias and police corruption, The Seeing Place Theater brings you Shakespeare's timeless drama, OTHELLO. Staged in modern dress with a deep focus on the language, this story is brought to life through the lens of one central dilemma:  

How can your ego survive when “the other” stands in your way?

After Othello, a black Arab, is made General and appointed leader of a wartime military operation, he chooses a scholar as his lieutenant and marries a powerful senator's daughter without his consent. Sick of being passed over, Othello's closest friend and best soldier uses his influence to make a deadly point.  

“We live in a world that pretends it is accepting of others, while silently or overtly belittling people we do not understand, “ says

Open: 03/20/15- Close: 04/04/15 Pinwheel!
Directed by Random Access Theatre's Artistic Dircetor Jennifer Sandella and featuring an original score by Geoff Barone and choreography by Esther Widlanski, this frenetic Jazz Age musical follows one woman’s struggle to find her place in the American Dreamscape. Torn between mundane domesticity and a glittery life in Hollywood, The Jane embarks on a frenzied journey to satisfy her cravings for a richer life. 
 
Emotionally charged and culturally relevant, Pinwheel! raises poignant questions about gender, societal roles, and the illusive nature of the American Dream. It is a story that is at once erotic, comic and tragic as it examines our often dissatisfaction with cultural norms in our quest for authenticity.
