The Amaranthine Thread  | Open: 02/19/10 Close: 02/21/10
 (A Tribute to the late Leah Ryan)

Amaranthine is both the color of purple and a mythical flower that never fades. In writing “The Amaranthine Thread,” a young American wrestles with the illness of her mentor Leah Ryan, the insensitivity of her playboy-cum-activist boyfriend Paul and the ghost of her Gypsy grandmother Lola. However, it is not Lola's intentions to haunt her, but to reconnect with her through “the Amaranthine Thread”-- the flame that will not go out, the will not only to survive but to live. In the end, it is Leah who serves as the link among these three very different women.

Leah -- Alexa Servodidio
Esperanza -- Iveliz Negron
Lola -- Olivia Schlueter-Corey
Paul -- Frank Genniro

Disillusioned  | Open: 10/07/09 Close: 10/25/09
The play is about a young girl named Jane, who hides in shadows and acts blind to combat stage fright. Through the play she does magic shows with Bernie, a magician who is her mentor and tries to teach her the secrets of his magic tricks. She, however, continues to act blind to keep the world away, until the act becomes reality.

 

Sex Ed  | Open: 09/19/09 Close: 09/30/09
It’s 1984. Three innocent New York City sixth-graders and their private school educators explore the often hilarious and frequently frightening world of sexual education in the classroom and beyond. The classroom heats up as pictographic nudity abounds in this clever and poignant account of sexual stirrings.

Sex Ed features a cast of three: Bob Brader, Judy Krause*, and Danny Wiseman*, each of whom play multiple characters.  *Member, AEA

Written and developed by Suzanne Bachner as the Resident Playwright at The Actors Institute, Sex Ed was last presented to critical acclaim at the 2nd Annual Midtown International Theatre Festival and at Horse Trade Theater Group. Off-Off Broadway Review proclaims Bachner’s work “playwriting of the craftiest kind - sharp, unpredictable, shrewd…Bachner's confident writing packs a punch.” Theatermania called Sex Ed a “tightly structured piece” that “leaves us wanting more.” NYTheatre states Sex Ed is “a success. It is concise, sincere, and thankfully free of cynicism (a rarity these days). And, Bachner is clearly a talented playwright.” And, Electronic Link says “Bachner’s mastery is once again revealed as she imperceptibly erases the thin line between innocent rebellion and staggering cruelty.

Too Much, Too Far, Too Soon  | Open: 07/19/09 Close: 07/26/09
Three short stage pieces explore the secrecy and social dilemmas that, despite legal advances, still haunt the gay community.

In "The Anniversary," a celebratory dinner turns tense as old secrets and prejudices surface among four close friends: a long-married straight couple and a soon-to-be-married gay couple.  Although the gay marriage debate is on the table, as it were, the play is less interested in making the case for equal marriage than in examining the institution itself.

"What's Going On?" is a song from Hockey: The Musical, a show that celebrates the brotherhood of team while examining the experience of being gay in the world of professional sports.  In "What's Going On?", a sports journalist struggles to face the truth of her failing relationship with a talented, secretive hockey player.

"Perpetual Check" centers on a young gay man desperate to find a meaningful connection.  Urged to get out by his friends, he winds up at a party somewhere in the wilds of New Jersey, surrounded by burly ex-jocks, a new mother on the verge of hysteria, and an attractive thrillseeker who throws basketballs at dogs.

Relationships, politics, public and private worlds, and the gray territory between homophobia and acceptance.  Ultimately, Too Much, Too Far, Too Soon eschews the political discussion for a much deeper one: how do we find love, and how do we negotiate the world, and how do we know love when we've found it?

Do you have the skill to find what is true and important about your ideas, and to present them clearly and convincingly? Theater Resources Unlimited (TRU) presents the TRU Producer Boot Camp: PITCHING & PRESENTATION SKILLS FOR WRITERS & PRODUCERS with Jane Petrov and Skytown Entertainment on Saturday, June 27 from 11am – 5pm at Where Eagles Dare, 347 W. 36th Street, Studio Blackbird, 13th floor, NYC. Admission is $175 ($150 for early registration before 6/12).

The economy may be a mess, but if writers and producers don’t make an effort to go about “business as usual,” there may never again be “business as usual.” Now more than ever, producers and writers need to hone and fine-tune their skills with the hope of bringing their projects to fruition. TRU continues its exploration of “The Art of the Pitch” with this all-day intensive workshop created to help writers and producers be truer, more effective and more persuasive.
 

Admission is $175 ($150 for early registration before 6/12); $25 off for members of TRU. Workshop limited to 20 participants. Pre-registration is available by emailing trunltd@aol.com. Applications are available at http://www.truonline.org/BootCampPitching.htm. Payment by check may be mailed to Theater Resources Unlimited, 309 W. 104th Street 1D, NYC NY 10025. On-line payment by Paypal or by credit card is available at www.truonline.org/store2.html.

The Meltdown  | Open: 02/28/09 Close: 03/01/09
The Meltdown is an exciting compilation of prose poems, detailing the everyday feelings of many if not all women. This topsy turvy 2 hour piece will make you laugh out loud, as you silently cry a relief that finally your voice has been heard.


The Meltdown , which initially started as a gateway to my autobiography, will give a newfound meaning to the word, "woman".
