A FRESH ASSORTMENT will begin 9Thirty Theatre Company’s one-year residency at the South Street Seaport. The company is committed to bringing eco-art and sustainable thinking to downtown Manhattan as part of their 2008- 2009 season: Nature Takes its Course.
A FRESH ASSORTMENT features four eco works:
THE 10 BILLIONTH BABY
Written by Bailey Williams & directed by: Justin Eure
“A woman named Magpie has her second child in a world of only firsts. When the media discovers that he is the ten billionth baby born on Earth, questions rise about the little town of Chester – a town that contains seconds, thirds, and even fourths. Magpie must then decide what is right and what is easy. A question that is only answered with silence.”
THE 10 BILLIONTH BABY was developed as part of Curious Theatre Company’s New Voices program in Denver and was presented at TCG’s 2008 Convention Plenary Session: Theatre and the Environment, moderated by Pulitzer Prize- winning playwright Paula Vogel.
LIVING IN THE BLUE ZONE
Written by Barbara Kingsley (August: Osage County)
“When a small town girl gets the chance to visit her BFF from college, she is thrilled by the prospect of tasting life in the Big Apple. Expectations clash with reality when Darsi learns that sometimes less can be more – right down to the empty matchbox when you’re living in ‘blue zone.’”
Written & directed by Sarah H. Haught
“Two tenured employees await delivery of their precious product. When the silence falls, the workers must make sense of the disruption to their own ecosystem. Little do they know that their co-workers have fallen victim of colony collapse disorder…”
MR. SASQUATCH GOES TO WASHINGTON
Written by Michael Anderson & directed by: Justin Eure
“Mr. Sasquatch Goes to Washington is a fast-talking romp through the world of politics, corporations and environmental activism. It features a senator, a bear terrorist, a famous Dr. Suess character and the furriest lobbyist to ever hit Washington!”
