|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

|The Anastasia Trials in the Court of Women
| Open: 12/03/08 Close: 12/14/08 - Roy Arias Theaters
The Emma Goldman Theatre Brigade, a radical feminist theatre group, is at it again - implementing their innovative lottery system to insure theatrical equality. They each draw the role they will play out of a hat each night before the show, but tonight there's a critic in the audience and t he sisterhood is put to the test when some of them don't draw the role they want. What follows is the trial of five women accused of denying Anastasia Romanov, the infamous daughter of Tsar Nicholas, of her identity where the audience becomes judge and jury. They rule on objections during the course of the play, creating a new show with every performance. A courtroom drama based on history wrapped in a backstage farce with a healthy dose of audience participation thrown in for good measure, The Anastasia Trials in the Court of Women presents a profoundly engaging excursion into the interactions of women who are survivors and abusers.
