While struggling to keep their dream of creating the next social media revolution afloat, Heidi, Toby, and Joe still have to make rent. But between tutoring manipulative Prep School Elite and editing application essays online, the boundary between distant professionalism and personal responsibility begins to blur. The Tutors offers a funny and touching look at the terror of hating where you are, knowing where you want to be, and not having a clue how to get there.
After successful runs of The Understudy and The Drunken City, Battalion Theatre returns to The Kraine with Erica Lipez's The Tutors. This dark comedy examines how we deal with failure in a time when we're constantly told we can succeed at anything. When technology allows us to present only our best, most successful selves, how do we navigate real human connection and find the courage to ask for what we really need?
FRIGID New York @ Horse Trade will present Battalion Theatre’s production of The Tutors by Erica Lipez, March 12-28 at The Kraine Theater (85 East 4th Street between 2nd Avenue and Bowery) with performances Thursday through Saturday at 7:30pm. The production will be directed by Gadi Rubin (Assistant Director, Zack Abramowitz) and feature Sean Devare, Kullan Edberg, Dan Gonon, Michael Greenhan, and Gerrit Thurston. The creative team will include Lighting Design by Jason Fok and Set Design by Kyu Shin. The production will be Stage Managed by Jenny Gorelick. Tickets ($20) may be purchased in advance at www.horseTRADE.info.
