Production History

I, Undertow  | Open: 08/15/09 Close: 08/22/09 - Wings Theatre
Everyone has issues. All of Justin's live in North Carolina.

Justin's an up and coming artist thriving in NYC whose world grinds to a halt when the worse thing possible happens to him - he gets the call to come home due to his grandmother's failing health. Slinking back to small town North Carolina with his latest one night stand forced upon him, he finds himself back neck deep in the family issues that he had been avoiding for more than a decade and facing the girl he left behind. In the midst of the culture clash between small town quirkiness and big city society behavior, Justin may actually discover what he had been running from for all of those years. Emmy-winner Blake Bradford's newest play takes a hard look at the humor and heartache of going home.

No Sex Please, We're British  | Open: 07/18/09 Close: 07/26/09 - Chernuchin Theater at ATA
Scandinavian pornography abounds when it is mistakenly sent to a bank branch manager and his young bride.  They try to keep it safely hidden from his nosy mother who happens to be visiting, his boss who's trying to become family, a bank inspector with insomnia who comes by for an unexpected visit and a tipsy police superintendent. With the help of the chief cashier who is way over his head, they manage to spin the most insane and deliciously fun web of mistaken identities, physical mishaps and hilarious complications resulting in a true classic door-slamming, high energy farce.

Directed by Christine Vinh Weems

Assistant Directed by Sara Towber

This new comedy by Christopher Award Winner Bill Svanoe tells the comedic story of Lynne Weiss, a "middle-aged" single lady, who dips her toes into the zaniness that is internet dating for the very first time.

Directed by Blake Bradford and Brooklyn Scalzo
