Genre: Festival

Clubbed Thumb theatre company presents present their 10th annual summer festival of new plays, Summerworks 2005. 212.802.8007.

This year's three mainstage productions are:

100 Aspects of the Moon
By Ethan Lipton, directed by Emma Griffin

Inspired by the work of 19th-century woodblock-printmaker Yoshitoshi, One Hundred Aspects of the Moon is a very sad comedy about the regularly scheduled failings of humanity. Deep-seeded resentment, lousy communication and misplaced love and violence ensue.
Running May 8, 9, 10, 12, 13, 14 at 8 PM

Madame Killer
By Honour Kane with Diana Kane, directed by Wier Harman

A Gothic noir about Ann Lohman who, upon her death in 1978, was a paradigm of capitalism, worth millions...but she had secrets. This fair doctor owned a black book filled with incriminating evidence about all the women she serviced over the years, striking fear in both rich and poor if this information ever got out!
Running May 15, 16, 17, 19, 20, 21 at 8 PM

Dearest Eugenia Haggis
by Ann Marie Healy directed by Melissa Kievman (

A heartbreaking and extremely funny tale of three misfits scrambling for the scraps of love in the frozen outskirts.
Running May 22, 23, 24 and 26, 27, and 28 at 8 PM.

This year the FREE reading series will be combined with the New Play Boot Camp, a weeklong workshop where Clubbed Thumb provides a playwright developing a play with a director and actors and they all develop the play together. The first Boot Camp reading will be of Everything You Have by Anna Zeigler on May 11th at 8pm. The second will be Iggy Woo by Alice Tuan on May 25th at 8pm.
