Production History

Eudaemonia  | Open: 09/08/13 Close: 09/29/13
In a walkup somewhere in Brooklyn, Ned is hopelessly in love with Natalie, the cute girl downstairs. But when a tiny Demon emerges in Ned's apartment, the promise of a cooler, more attractive self threatens to dissolve his very personhood. Amidst strange doppelgangers, ominous portents, and an unending search for some meaningful transformation, three twenty-somethings watch their identities disintegrate before their very eyes. Part magical-realist romp, part meditation on the line between appearance and identity, Eudaemonia is a wild and imaginative ride through the insecurities and the isolation of urban life.

Presented by Three New Playwrights as part of the month-long pop up event (not just) 3 New Plays, featuring three world premiere plays - Eudaemonia, Shoot the Freak by Jaclyn Backhaus and killers by Kevin Armento - as well as new works by 60 other artists.

Killers  | Open: 09/08/13 Close: 09/29/13
Miranda has had the urge to kill since she was a little girl, but when she befriends Bobby Barrett and they start making booby traps together, her desire seems quelled - at least for now. Decades later, a nameless woman in a cubicle tries to suppress her grim fantasies of dying while negotiating an interoffice romance. killers breaks down theatrical boundaries and explores a world of language and images. And as these two stories unfold, they reveal intricate links - between each other, and between two of our basest urges.

The cast includes Rania Salem Manganaro (Hit the Wall, Barrow Street Theatre), John Gasper, Emma Ramos (One Night in the Valley, INTAR), and Chris Thorn (Of Mice and Men, The Acting Company) and Katy Wright-Mead (Boardwalk Empire).

Shoot The Freak  | Open: 09/08/13 Close: 09/29/13
When Franny and her Bushwick friends set out to Coney Island to relive the magic birthday exploits of 2006, they expect a few Nathan’s hot dogs, a few spins on the Cyclone, a few nostalgic look backs on How Things Used to Be. Franny even crosses her fingers for a whimsical make-out session with Grant. But no one—not even the maniacal local weatherman—seems to forecast the Level Five Hurricane headed straight for Luna Park. As the boards on the walk start to creak and split in the wind, as hunks of amusement park metal are exposed to the elements, as the rain falls and the waves crest, the layers of old Coney (and Old Coney, and Ole Olde Coney) bubble to the surface. And it’s only a matter of time before the Freaks seek shelter from the storm.

Cast: Ryann Weir (The Collected Rules of Gifted Camp, The Brick), Jamie Effros (Back of Throat, The Flea Theater), Claire Rothrock (Clown Bar, Pipeline Theatre Company), Ben Otto (Debutante, Ars Nova ANT Fest), Maxwell Eddy (Red, Virginia Rep) and Sarah Todes.
