If you've ever experienced a David Johnston play, odds are it still sits vividly in your memory to this day: The hilarity and tenderness in BUSTED JESUS COMIX, the scathing political satire of A BUSH CAROL, the epic storytelling in his re-imagining of Aeschylus' THE ORESTEIA. You remember the sly and sophisticated psychological maneuverings inCONVERSATIONS ON RUSSIAN LITERATURE, the giddy fun of EFFIE JEAN IN TAHITI, and PLAY RUSSIA's zany parody. You cheered MOTHRA IS WAITING, his lovesong to the struggles of the human spirit, told through the lens of showbiz, and thrilled to the strip-club raunch and lyric sweetness that met and ignited, improbably, in YES YES YES.
David's plays are the stuff of fandom, and time and again he delivers — theater that sticks, long after the house lights are back up. And in all of the works above, and more, Blue Coyote Theater Group has been a proud producer and collaborator. So it is thrilling to announce that David's newest play, CONEY, will have its world premiere in November of 2012, at the New Ohio Theater, produced by Blue Coyote!
CONEY is a work of fierce affection, spun by one of Coney Island's most passionate aficionados. Evocative, informed, panoramic, sidesplitting and heartbreaking, CONEY is unforgettable.
Wednesday – Saturday at 8 PM, with added performances on Sunday, October 28 and Sunday, November 4 at 7 PM; Monday, October 29, Tuesday, October 30 & Tuesday, November 13 at 8 PM. There is no performance on Wednesday, October 31.
