Open: 05/04/22- Close: 05/21/22 A BARN PLAY
Northern Manhattan’s UP Theater Company presents a different kind of animal farm in the world premiere of Lizzie Donahue’s “A Barn Play” May 4 - May 21, 2022 at Fort Washington Collegiate Church in Inwood. This timely and darkly comic fable explores the power of creating art amidst oppression when a cast of farm animals rehearses their show. Directed by Leslie Kincaid Burby.

Owl (Rik Walter) attempts to rehearse his new play with a lively and opinionated ensemble of farm animals: Chicken (April J. Barber), Pig (Ariel Blake), Dog (Adam Burby), Cow (Erin Nelson), Sheep (Mary Albert), and Cat (Denisse Estefany Mendoza). Tensions flare when a crisis befalls the animals and the ensemble rejects Owl's arty attempt for one of their own devising - one that sheds light on our own relationships with animals, children, and art.

Open: / / - Close: Open Run CONFIDENCE (and The Speech)
On July 4, 1979 President Carter cancelled an important energy policy speech he was scheduled to give the next day and disappeared to Camp David. Ten days later, he emerged from his impromptu domestic summit and gave a new speech, the Crisis of Confidence speech, which many now view as unprecedented, farsighted and insightful. Others think it may have ultimately cost him the White House. Forty years later, college professor Cynthia Cooper is approached by a stranger, a young man, and asked to recall her time with the Carter Administration during the days before the now infamous “malaise” speech. If she is going to tell her story of that time, she is going to play the President. And the young man who wants to know her story? Well, he is going to play her. This unique cross-gender play explores the confidence of a president, a nation in chaos and women in politics.
