Four screwed-up fairy-tales: The Big Bad Wolf wears a short, short skirt, Rumpelstiltskin is tenured in the Ivy league, and Rapunzel is bleeding heavily from the scalp. Plus, Prince Charming seems to be developing a drinking problem. Hot off a nearly sold-out run at Luna Stage in New Jersey, the nomadic bi-state StrangeDog Theatre Company is coming across the Hudson with their evening of new plays that grab four age-old fairy-tales and throw them into a modern dilapidated apartment building. Featuring new works from four New Jersey powerhouse playwrights – John Wooten, Stacie Lents, Joseph Palestina, and Ben Clawson.
Horse Trade Theater Group and StrangeDog Theatre will present the New York Premiere of ENCHANTED ARMS written by Ben Clawson, Stacie Lents, Joseph Palestina, and John Wooten, May 15-31 at UNDER St. Marks (94 St. Marks Place between 1st Avenue and Avenue A). This evening of new plays is conceived by Ben Clawson (The High Water Mark, Luna Stage) and directed by Artem Yatsuov (Basic Help, Sell Out Award Winner, FRIGID NYC 2014) with choreography by Annalisa Ledson (NACHMO 4 NYC). Featuring: Tony K Knotts (Master Harold…and the Boys!, Luna Stage), Michelle, Tracy Shar, Annalisa Ledson, Gary Martins, Shannon Sullivan, Seth Michael, Lee Ann Hoover, and David Hoffman. The creative team will include Lighting and Sound Design by Harrison J Adams, Original Art Work by Sara Sciarrabbarasi, and Press Photography by Anthony Gusevich. The production will be Stage Managed by Rachael Tucker.
About the Company: StrangeDog Theatre Company
STRANGE DOG THEATRE COMPANY has performed in cramped cafes, noisy bars, abandoned warehouses, crowded restaurants and some well-known regional playhouses. They have developed a large repertoire of work over these past couple years – from a slew of carefully constructed evenings of short comedies to premieres of full-length plays. StrangeDog has been striving to bring its stories to established theaters with their experienced theatergoers. Yet we also endeavor to expose new audiences to our particular brand of outlandish comedy and biting drama in venues where they would expect it least. Essentially, StrangeDog is creating plays for people who mistakenly think they don’t like plays.
