Open: 02/20/15- Close: 02/20/15 BI, HUNG,FIT... AND MARRIED
BHF+M is a risqué, autobiographical one-person show about a couple's decision to end their ailing 15-year marriage and form a new partnership to accommodate their desire for sexual growth and freedom beyond the bounds of monogamy.

Marco's bisexuality is a catalyst for the much-needed change, and begins the process of self-discovery for both of them as they allow each other to explore evolving emotional and sexual needs.

Conventional wisdom dictates that non-monogamy is the ultimate marital risk. It’s certainly not a recipe for success. Or is it?

The counter-intuitive discoveries they make along the way lead the couple – and the audience – to question root assumptions about the nature of marriage, sexuality, and what it means to truly love another.

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

Brooklyn’s lascivious, hilarious showman of supernatural sleaze makes his Frigid Festival debut with his critically acclaimed solo show “Dandy Darkly’s Pussy Panic!” New York City, prepare to PANIC!

"Dandy Darkly is an utterly unique and potentially fatal cocktail of mince and menace that not to be believed... even once he's been seen!" The Villager, 2012

“Dandy Darkly’s Pussy Panic!” is a macabre meditation on the misogynist motifs found within the horror genre, as well as a scathing fuck you to the flippant attitudes displayed by some gay men in reference to women and their bodies.

Open: 03/04/15- Close: 03/22/15 KNOCK: A JOURNEY TO A STRANGE COUNTRY
Lost & Found Project, an edgy ensemble of next generation storytellers, curates a world premiere of KNOCK: A Journey to a Strange Country, a new play inspired by writings of the Russian avant-garde absurdist Daniil Kharms.

 

KNOCK: A Journey to a Strange Country takes a closer look at the experience of migration and the consequences of choices, while attempting to penetrate the paradoxical world of human nature, both tragic and comical. KNOCK blends approaches and perceptions in order to study what truly compels us to act or to fear, to follow or to rebel, to open up or to hide within our true selves.  Exploring the ideas of fear and existence propels the company members to process their personal journeys through the lens of Kharms’

Open: 02/18/15- Close: 03/07/15 LET'S PLAY PLAY PRESENTED BY POWEROUT AND FRIGID NEW YORK
On the Internet everyone can hear you scream.

What happens when it's your job to be friends with someone? When do you compromise artistic integrity for cash? Two Internet personalities skyrocket to stardom with a new “Let’s Play” video game show. But when a female gamer joins them, things get ugly. And then even uglier.

Let’s Play Play by Ben Ferber is about selling out, and how we use Internet personalities as replacements for real friends. It also embodies the infamously horrifying vitriol of YouTube comments and gamergate.

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: 02/18/15- Close: 02/28/15 Richard the Third and Goal, or R3G
Richard the Third and Goal, or R3G mashes iconic and polarizing NFL star Ray Lewis with the notorious King Richard III. Using Shakespeare's text and Lewis' words, R3G sifts the classic play through the wild pageantry of a football game in a sudden-death playoff between two men both revered and reviled.

In 2000, NFL star Ray Lewis was arrested in connection with a street brawl that ended in the stabbing death of two men. One year later, having pled guilty to obstruction of justice and after having served a brief prison sentence, Lewis led his team to football’s highest prize, the Super Bowl championship. In 2012 Lewis earned a second championship and retired following the season as a man loved by some, hated by others.
