Production History

All Girls  | Open: 03/28/13 Close: 04/13/13
Collaboration Town in partnership with Sister Scars will present the World Premiere production of ALL GIRLS,written by Anna Greenfield (Norma and Claude Get Married at the Lee Strasberg Institute) and directed by Lee Sunday Evans (The Play About My Dad at 59E59). The production will feature Zoe Costello, Anna Greenfield, and Anna Ryan Konkle.

All Girls is a hyper real, sometimes surreal play about three teenage girls and one colossally scary mother. Trembling on the brink of womanhood, the girls act out with one another and their families in the most outrageous ways imaginable. It's also funny

The Astronomer's Triange  | Open: 03/11/05 Close: 04/16/05
An astronomer, a waitress, and a cartographer find themselves in a disorienting, explosive, and unknown scientific state: love.

Every second, somewhere in the universe, a star explodes and no one knows how or why. Every second someone falls in or feels love, and no one knows why. What is this state we call "love"? Through The Astronomers Triangle, the members of CollaborationTown explore love: it's secrets, science, lust, betrayal-and the fruit it bears. Encompassing original music, movement and sharp humor this truly collaborative ensemble will guide you through the stars, comets and the origin of life, avoiding the blackholes that eagerly await to swallow us...all in the frame of a triangle.

The Deepest Play Ever: The Catharsis Of Pathos  | Open: 03/09/12 Close: 03/25/12
Award-winning ensemble CollaborationTown (The Play About My Dad, The Momentum, 6969) invites you to the World Premiere of THE DEEPEST PLAY EVER: THE CATHARSIS OF PATHOS by Geoffrey Decas O’Donnell with music by Michael Wells. An acclaimed 2006 production of this Brecht satire won an Outstanding Playwrighting Award at FringeNYC.

Before Mother Courage there was Mother LaMadre. In THE DEEPEST PLAY EVER, an unrivaled masterpiece of modern dramatic writing, our antiheroine Mother LaMadre and her rag-tag crew drag their wagon through the Fifth World War and the post-post-apocalyptic wasteland that is New Europe. Together they must navigate all the pitfalls (and rewards) of the dramatic art of drama to find the few remaining books the art-abolishing Evil Empire have yet to destroy and maybe find a way to replace violence with art. If the zombies don't eat them first, that is.

Directed by Lee Sunday Evans and Jordan Seavey, the production stars Jordan Barbour, Carly Cioffi, Nick Choksi, John Halbach, Boo Killebrew, Geoffrey Decas O’Donnell, Chinasa Ogbuagu, Phillip Taratula, Emily Walton and TJ Witham with set and props by Deb O, costumes by Nikki Moody, lighting by Nick Houfek, sound by Brandon Wolcott and Daniel Kluger, music direction by Michael Wells, associate music direction by Nicholas Williams, and stage management by Kaitlin Nemeth.
