Production History

A Fresh Assortment  | Open: 04/22/09 Close: 04/25/09
A FRESH ASSORTMENT will begin 9Thirty Theatre Company’s one-year residency at the South Street Seaport. The company is committed to bringing eco-art and sustainable thinking to downtown Manhattan as part of their 2008- 2009 season: Nature Takes its Course.

A FRESH ASSORTMENT features four eco works:

Written by Bailey Williams & directed by: Justin Eure
“A woman named Magpie has her second child in a world of only firsts. When the media discovers that he is the ten billionth baby born on Earth, questions rise about the little town of Chester – a town that contains seconds, thirds, and even fourths. Magpie must then decide what is right and what is easy. A question that is only answered with silence.”

THE 10 BILLIONTH BABY was developed as part of Curious Theatre Company’s New Voices program in Denver and was presented at TCG’s 2008 Convention Plenary Session: Theatre and the Environment, moderated by Pulitzer Prize- winning playwright Paula Vogel.

Written by Barbara Kingsley (August: Osage County)
“When a small town girl gets the chance to visit her BFF from college, she is thrilled by the prospect of tasting life in the Big Apple. Expectations clash with reality when Darsi learns that sometimes less can be more – right down to the empty matchbox when you’re living in ‘blue zone.’”

Written & directed by Sarah H. Haught
“Two tenured employees await delivery of their precious product. When the silence falls, the workers must make sense of the disruption to their own ecosystem. Little do they know that their co-workers have fallen victim of colony collapse disorder…”

Written by Michael Anderson & directed by: Justin Eure
“Mr. Sasquatch Goes to Washington is a fast-talking romp through the world of politics, corporations and environmental activism. It features a senator, a bear terrorist, a famous Dr. Suess character and the furriest lobbyist to ever hit Washington!”

Lysistrata, Now  | Open: 10/18/08 Close: 10/27/08
9Thirty Theatre Company (9TTC), a non-profit eco-theater company, will premiere "Lysistrata, Now" on October 19 for their first-year initiative, Planting the Seed.

"Lysistrata, Now" is a fresh adaptation of the anti-war, feminist Greek comedy "Lysistrata." This modernized version of the Classic is infused with live blues & folk music and tells the tale of a group of politically-charged women who band together to fight for peace. 9TTC's "Lysistrata, Now" is starring Rebecca Naomni Jones* (Passing Strange), featuring Ashley Morris* (Die Mommie Die!), directed by Aaron Gonzalez and Justin Eure, with music by Andrew Pastides and Joe Binder and lyrics written and adapted by Jeffrey Burroughs.

The Birds  | Open: 08/10/10 Close: 08/21/10
The Birds is set in a landfill/crow's nest, and inhabited by half-puppet half-man trash art creations, our protagonist's seeks fortune with a plan that hinges on Man's "out of sight out of mind," mentality. The old adage, "one man's trash is another man's treasure," rings true and he prevails by defeating his enemies with their own greed.
