Caseload  | Open: 04/28/06 Close: 05/20/06
Set in the cold sterile halls of a treatment center somewhere outside New York City, "CASELOAD" follows eight patients from all walks of life who share one common goal: to pull themselves out of their various addictions.

There's Maggie, a young black woman from Harlem; Vinnie, a Harvard graduate from Bay Ridge; Sonia, a Puerto Rican secretary from the Lower East Side; Eddie, a small time drug dealer from the South Bronx; Fran, a white ex-street walker from East New York; Chaz, an African-American Julliard graduate; Emily, a former socialite from the Hamptons; and Tyrone, a thug from Bedford-Stuyvesant. All are challenged by their primary counselor, Adonis Collins, a former drug addict whose tough-love methods encourage recovery through spirituality. Treatment director Emma Thompson takes the by-the-books approach of recovery through bureaucratic standard.

CASELOAD attempts to answer questions of what methods work and whether or not the bureaucratic protocol is effective or harmful in treating addicts.

Lizzie Borden At Eight O'clock  | Open: 04/10/13 Close: 04/13/13
 

“Lizzie Borden at Eight O’Clock,” Mitch Giannunzio’s critically acclaimed one-woman play starring Ellen Barry, directed by Kenneth Tigar, returns to the WorkShop Theater Company for four performances only, April 10, 11, 12 and 13. All proceeds will benefit the WorkShop.   Performances are at 8pm in the WorkShop’s Jewel Box Theater, 312 West 36th Street (at 8th Avenue), 4th Floor West.   General admission tickets are $18, with a $15 student/senior discount and a limited number of $9 Off-Off-Broadway discount at TDF.  For information and reservations visit www.workshoptheater.org or call 866-811-4111.


Over a century after the grisly hatchet murders of Lizzie’s father and stepmother in 1982, the still unsolved crime remains a source of widespread fascination, retold in many forms.  In Giannunzio’s play, Lizzie takes the podium at her local Historical Society to clear her name once and for all.   This chilling first person account has been hailed as “a subtle, masterful performance… what begins as a public excavation of the Lizzie Borden case turns into a trial of her captivated audience…working both as a murder mystery and as a psychological portrait of a woman, a town, and an ongoing national fascination with all the gory detail” – nytheatre.com.  “a riveting, haunting portrayal” – History News Network.  It has been seen most recently in sold-out engagements at the Marcella Sembrich Opera Museum in Lake George and Watch Hill, Rhode Island’s five-star Ocean House Hotel.

The Yellow Wallpaper  | Open: 01/16/14 Close: 01/26/14
What if the one person who has vowed to love you… for better or for worse… in sickness and in health… took you away… from everyone that you cherish? From everything that sustains you? In essence, the sum of yourself. Where would you go? What would you do?

THE YELLOW WALLPAPER tells the shocking story of one woman’s isolation, obsession, and descent into madness.

SYNOPSIS: New England, 1891. Jane, a sensitive and imaginative woman, finds herself sequestered on a remote estate that her husband, a physician, has rented for the summer. She is forbidden to write, and must hide her journal entries as she recuperates from what he has diagnosed as a "temporary nervous depression” following the birth of their baby. Without anything or anyone to stimulate her, Jane becomes obsessed by the wallpaper in her bedroom as the effect of her domestic oppression and stifled creativity begins to take a toll on her sanity.

This 75-minute solo adaptation of Charlotte Perkins Gilman's classic short story was first produced at Manhattan Theatre Source in March 2009 before it toured area libraries and colleges for Women's History Month. Annalisa Loeffler returns to NYC in this one-woman tour de force written by Greg Oliver Bodine and directed DeLisa M. White. Please join us!

Life on campus turns scandalous when Doreen learns Le Chevalier's real identity and accidently spills the beans to her roommate, Jill (Alexandra Devin), who just happens to be dating the sensationalistic editor of the student paper.
