Open: 08/01/14- Close: 08/24/14 The Law Of Return
Inspired by the events surrounding the polarizing Jay Pollard espionage case, Martin Blank's original spy thriller The Law of Return depicts the actions of a notorious intelligence analyst abusing his level of access and threatening U.S. national security-or is he?

Whether driven by ideology or personal gain, Pollard, a United States Naval Intelligence analyst based in Suitland, Maryland, removes thousands of classified documents and turns them over to Israel. Once found out by the United States, Pollard leads police on a wild chase through D.C., desperately hoping to get to the Embassy of Israel and seek asylum.

Life Without Parole will receives its NY premiere as part of the 18th Annual New York International Fringe Festival, - FringeNYC. August 8th – 26th.

Sometimes, the greatest injustice is the justice system itself. Inspired by Dr. Elizabeth Leonard’s Convicted Survivors: The Imprisonment of Battered Women Who Kill, Life Without Parole draws on the original transcripts and testimonies of women incarcerated at the California Institution for Women at Chino for killing their abusive partners. This play takes you "behind the barbed wire" exposing how these convicted domestic violence survivors bond together, explore their pasts, and survive when orange becomes their new black and blue.

A new play by Kate Ballen, inspired by the true stories of undocumented immigrant NYC high school students.

NO ONE ASKED ME delves into the turbulent world of “undocumented” students.  Each year over 65,000 students without legal immigration papers graduate from high school in the U.S.  Daniel, Alyssa, and Sophie are Bronx high school seniors hopeful for their future—yet without a social security number, they are unable to get college financial aid, legal employment and live in constant fear of being “found out” and deported from the only home they have ever known.  NO ONE ASKED ME is an insider’s look at the intimate human struggle behind the current political debate in Congress around the Dream Act.
