Open: 03/15/19- Close: 03/23/19 Blanche Maupas
This play tells the true story of Blanche and Théophile Maupas, both teachers in a small village in Normandy. Théo was mobilized in August 1914. Two months later he was sent to the Champagne Front. In March 1915, after several days of extremely intense fighting, the men were exhausted and demoralized. They refused to respond to a new order to attack. To reestablish discipline, General Réveilhac ordered a military tribunal to be held. Chosen at random, four corporals, including Théophile Maupas, were condemned to death and executed the next day.
Blanche did not find out the news until nine days later. Then began for her a battle that would last nearly twenty years, that of clearing Théo’s name and the names of his three comrades.

Open: 03/14/19- Close: 03/24/19 MIRANDA FROM STORMVILLE
In small town New Jersey, somewhere off the Garden State Parkway, a great storm is raging. But inside their little house, Miranda Milano watches the once magical energy drain from her Pops eyes. Their dormant life is shocked awake by the arrival of two young men, stranded by car trouble, who cause a shift in the fabric of the family’s life. But is their random arrival actually random at all?

Miranda from Stormville asks: how do we escape circumstances we can’t avoid? How do we continue on when hope is lost? Just miles outside New York City, Miranda’s rural America may as well be a stranded island: is she destined to only experience life through the books she constantly devours? Or does her ailing father, with his self-professed powers, and a caretaker with a flair for the dramatic have bigger plans in store?

Open: 03/21/19- Close: 04/14/19 SHAREHOLDER VALUE
THEATER FOR THE NEW CITY presents SHAREHOLDER VALUE, a new play by Tom Attea where stocks plummet and tensions soar. This play, which reunites the playwright with director Mark Marcante and composer Arthur Abrams, the team behind Heather Smiley for President, America’s Favorite Newscaster, and An American Worker is based loosely on the meltdown at General Electric. It centers around the struggles the CEO of a troubled conglomerate faces to deliver what he must every quarter, regardless of the problems the company runs into. The production will play a limited engagement from Thursday, March 21st through Sunday, April 14th at Theater For the New City (155 1st Avenue at East 10th Street).
