LADY MACBETH AND HER LOVER tells the tale of three women, whose lives are intertwined when two of them make a suicide pact, and one dies, while the other goes on to live a successful life.

Open: 11/25/17- Close: 11/27/17 LADY OF THE CASTLE - A GHOSTLY POST-HOLOCAUST CHAMBER OPERA
A ghostly post-Holocaust chamber opera based on a true story and an Israeli play by Lea Goldberg with music and lyrics by Mira J. Spektor. Lissa Moira directs a cast of four, including Darcy Dunn, Douglas McDonnell, Bennett Pologe, and Amanda Yachechak.

Relevant to today's anti-refugee, anti-semitic political climate, Lady of The Castle is set in 1947 after the Holocaust. Is there a young Jewish girl still hidden in the old castle? Based on a true story and Lea Goldberg’s Israeli play, Lady of the Castle is a chamber opera about illusion, reality, love, betrayal, death and hope.

Open: 11/11/17- Close: 12/16/17 Muswell Hill
Following the sold-out run of Abigail’s Party last fall, The Barrow Group Theatre Company and The Pond Theatre Company reunite to present the New York premiere of Muswell Hill by Torben Betts.  

Set in the leafy north London suburb of Muswell Hill, a dinner party turns dangerously fraught, yet increasingly comical, as the host and guests rattle their upper middle class complacency to a point of no return.  Amidst this domestic disaster, an earthquake in a developing nation rocks the rest of the world. How can they justify their everyday worries in an ever more fragile world?

Torben Betts is a multi award-winning British playwright, described by Alan Ayckbourn as “one of the most exciting theatre writing talents I have come across in many a year.
