Production History

A Map To Somewhere Else  | Open: 06/19/14 Close: 06/28/14
We all leave things we love behind...

What happens to the imagined worlds we create as children? The tender, heroic, silly, elaborate fantasies that shape the souls of so many ordinary people, then are abandoned as we grow. What if, all this time, they were there waiting, hoping we'd come back? A Map to Somewhere Else is a comic drama full of fantasy, music, and magic that dares to ask what happens when that long-closed door is reopened. What adventures wait for us beyond the threshold?


Featuring: Erin Healani Chung, Meghann Garmany, Finn Kilgore, Eddy Lee, Lila Newman, Sam Ogilvie, Jay William Thomas, and Case Watson.

Briar Rose & The Thirteenth Fairy  | Open: 05/01/13 Close: 05/10/13
Be careful who you leave off the list...

What happens when you wake up one morning and 100 years have passed you by? How do you protect your children in a world where fairies have fangs and curses can kill? What do we do when "ever after" isn't so happy after all? And what's the best way to keep your Horse's snotty attitude in check? Join us as we unravel the answers to these universal questions (and more!) in a thrilling blend of theatre, music, movement, and shadow play. 
 
This May, at the historic Jan Hus theatre, Everyday Inferno brings Caroline Angell’s modern new adaptation of the classic Sleeping Beauty fairy tale to life. Weaving together the narratives of Perrault, Basile, and The Brothers Grimm, this re-imagining explores the dark (and occasionally hilarious) corners of a story we all thought we'd heard before. (This production contains mature themes and material and is geared toward an adult audience).

GLASSHEART  | Open: 10/19/17 Close: 10/28/17
"In the empty living room of a shabby apartment, a Beast is crying. There is just enough light to see that he is monstrous, and clutching something precious to him."

Beauty never showed up. Centuries after the curse, the Beast and his last remaining magical servant are holed up in a ramshackle apartment, managed by a mysterious landlady with a suspicious taste for gingerbread. When an eligible maiden moves in next door, "happily ever after" feels agonizingly within reach, but we all know that in fairytales, nothing is exactly as it seems. Full of humor, magic, and belief in the life-altering power of love, Glassheart is a witty and decidedly adult take on a classic tale that explores the space between light and dark, and the sacrifices we make in search of an ordinary life.

If On A Winter's Night...  | Open: 12/05/13 Close: 12/08/13
If on a Winter’s Night…, Everyday Inferno’s inaugural winter production of one-act plays directed by women, will play a week-long engagement from December 5th through December 8th, 2013 at the Access Theatre Gallery (380 Broadway, NYC 10013).  The three plays featured in the evening are Jen Tries Vacation - written by G.D. Kimble (LaBute New Theatre Festival) and directed by AnaŃ—s Koivisto (Artistic Director, Everyday Inferno), People Will Talk About You Sometimes – written by Sarah Matusek and directed by Taylor Reynolds, and The Policy – written by A.C. DeLashmutt and directed by Katherine Sommer (Producing Director, Everyday Inferno).

Elements of fantasy unite the three plays in an evening devoted to bare-bones theatrical magic.  In G.D. Kimble’s Jen Tries Vacation, a yuppie couple has a magical encounter that tests their patience, their “liberal” values, and ultimately their sanity. Have they wandered to the wrong side of the universe, or just the wrong side of the tracks? In A.C. DeLashmutt’s The Policy, Jessie receives two odd and unexpected visitors with a very unusual product to sell. With her future psychic health on the line, she is forced to consider the inevitable after-effects of weight gain, friendship-ending fights, and circus-seal-training reality show contests. Sarah Matusek’s People Will Talk About You Sometimes, inspired by Sarah Kane’s 4:48 Psychosis, follows a loose network of inter-connected strangers as they come together in a show of support after a mutual friend’s unexpected attempt at suicide. Unbound by limitations of time or space, the play explores the emotional terrain of illness, acceptance, and recovery.
