Producer, Drama of Works

On November 1st through the 4th, Drama of Works will once again extend the Halloween holiday, terrorizing unsuspecting New Yorkers with the Carnival of Samhain (pronounced Sowe-Wen). Abrons Arts Center will host the spooky extravaganza in their Experimental Theater. The program is composed mostly of puppet pieces (with an emphasis placed on variety), as well as dance, magic, comedy and live music. For full schedule please visit


A Typist contends with an incorrigible heartless fate in the form of surreal hand puppets due to David Michael Friend... The Illusionist Will Randall dazzles all while risking personal bodily harm... The mad late-night ravings of camp girls gone wild come alive in the shadow puppetry piece Haunted Projectile by the artist collective Carrionettes ...I Put a Spell on You thanks to Emily DeCola's sexy rod-puppet interpretation... We're treated to Coffina's Haunted Sideshow, a musical spooktacular in the gothic victorian style... Puppet Junction brings us a comedic look at good versus evil in The Claw... "Swallowed" has Lindsay-Abromaitis Smith exploring with puppets, if you were swallowed by your own soul, what would you find there?... Shoddy Puppet Productions brings The Frankenstein of Everyday Life from Philadelphia (now that's a frightening thought!)... AND Drama of Works illustrates a giant cockroach's nightmare in Puppet Kafka... plus film, dance, and the band HAUNTED P*SSY... Hosted, as always, with accordion and puppets by our infamous emcee BoneDaddy (aka Jonny ClockWorks)
