Production History

23 Coins  | Open: 10/07/09 Close: 10/25/09 - Nicu's Spoon Theatre
Ginny Walker is not like other girls. Hiding out in the badlands of southern Louisiana, this genius girl-prodigy and her fugitive mother, Sarah, live precariously. But the law is not the only threat. Both of them dangle beneath a giant question mark—a fatal genetic legacy that may (or may not) strike. Laid bare under such catastrophic shoes about to drop, how does one plow through an average day? As you might’ve guessed, Ginny turns to preaching the gospel. After all, she’s gifted. She’s got fire & brimstone. Healing hands. And somehow, the full text of the bible committed to memory. In the pursuit of soul saving, these gifts are invaluable. To Isaac Thigpen of Christ’s Road Show Tent Revival, Lil’ Gin Walker’s talents are gold. When she preaches—the collection plate doth runneth over. Thigpen has big plans for which he’ll fight if necessary. And he’ll surely bring down hellfire on anyone who gets in the way—to make sure that his golden girl-preacher goose keeps the cash comin’. Things may seem hopeless. But this special (and highly motivated) girl isn’t about to leave her fate up to chance.

How will Gin and her mother survive their gods and demons?

Tibet Does Not Exist  | Open: 04/08/09 Close: 04/26/09 - Nicu's Spoon Theatre
An exiled Tibetan Lama becomes an uncomfortable house guest for a Yale economics professor, who, along with his cynical colleagues, do not quite know what to think of the often irreverent monk. As the Lama turns his attention to the economist, the professor confesses some painful truths regarding mis-understood ideas and unresolved relationships. En route the Lama takes us on a sometimes humorous, sometimes poignant journey through what the tragedy of Tibet means in a modern context. With the turmoil in Tibet making recent headlines, Tibet Does Not Exist takes on special meaning.

"Stands the modern Western world on its head... SO FUNNY that it is surprising... the playwright's reticence works: Tibet is very much on your mind as you leave." -- New York Times, October 1997


"Well-mixed blend of drawing room comedy and debate... deserves to reach as wide an audience as possible... [a] POWERFUL metaphor of Tibet as a state of mind that speaks to our own life values." -- CurtainUp, September 1997


"An animated TOUR DE FORCE!" -- Davida Singer, Villager, December 1996


"EXTRAORDINARILY INFORMATIVE AND FASCINATING ... I love a play that sends the mind spinning in such intriguing orbits; this is such a play." -- Martin's Guide to NY Theater, September 1997


"OUTSTANDING... a play which I would love to read even though dramatic literature is not something I usually crave... with the right marketingit could be a bestseller..." -- Washington Square News, September 1997


"Upsets the hallowed halls of the cultural elite..." -- Village Voice, September 1997
