suggests they re-engage by trying "52 positions" -- a different one each week of the year. What transpires is both playful and menacing as tables are turned in a clash between romance and desire.

POSITIONS had its world-premiere at The Red Barn Studio Theatre earlier this year.

WIFE, BOSTON MARRIAGE, THE TALE OF THE ALLERGIST'S WIFE, LOBBY HERO, GOD OF CARNAGE, RABBIT HOLE, and COLLECTED STORIES. POSITIONS is Mr. Dunne's first play, Red Barn's first world premiere and its first production to transfer to New York.
Mr. Bakunas has directed Red Barn's productions of GOD OF CARNAGE, LOBBY HERO, THE TALE OF THE ALLERGIST'S WIFE and COLLECTED STORIES.
“I have a passion for short plays. With the Short Play Lab throughout the season and the MITF’s Short Subjects in the summer, and the Midwinter Madness Short Play Festival in the winter, it’s all short play all year ’round!” said John Chatterton.
In addition to a tie-in with the MITF Short Subjects, the Midwinter Madness Short Play Festival also echoes the MITF with some international plays, notably CIRCO POEIRA (“Dust Circus”), a solo play with puppets all the way from Brazil (written and directed by Caio Stolai; produced by Milena Nascimento). There is also a play about immigrants in Greece, ONE OUT OF TEN (originally created by Laertis Vasiliou; translated and directed by Aktina Stathak).
Other Midwinter Madness selections (30 in all) include COFFEE HOUSE, GREENWICH VILLAGE, by John Doble; Never Underestimate Karma, by Mike Durell; THE TOUPEE, by Tom Dunn; A MONTH OF SUNDAYS, by Tearrance A. Chisholm; Norma Jeane Enlightened,by Joanne de Simone; HOLIDAY IN HEAVEN, a musical by Demetria Daniels; Hungry People, the Musical. by Jung Han Kim; The Walls Came Tumbling Down and THE TOWER, by Paulanne Simmons; JIMMY AND JANICE, by Jason Cicci; REST, by Leonard D. Goodisman; THE SEVEN STAGES OF GRIEF, by Dimitri C. Michalakis; THE BABBLER, by Jeffrey Fiske; HIROSHI-ME,ME,ME, by Natalie Menna; ONCE, by Dan Bocchino; Out of the Cradle Endlessly Rocking, by Nikola Tesla Gojcaj; Red All Over, by Mike Fresta; DICTATORS FOR HIRE, by Joe Beck; Without a Net, 5 short plays by Meri Wallace; Fetal Attraction, by Sarah M Chichester; WAITING FOR DR. HOFFMAN, by Michele Willens; Meredith’s Ring, by Andrew Rothkin; Strawberry Fields, by Ashley Nicole Audette; LA PETITE MORT, by Joshua R. Pangborn; THE BRINK, by Eugenie Carabatsos; SOCIAL ANXIETY, by Gwen Baer; Animal Kingdom, by Laura Zlatos; and THE MAN IN THE WINDOW: The Building of the Brooklyn Bridge, by Donald Orwald and Linda Harvey-Burkley.
John Chatterton created the MITF in 2000, a Midtown alternative to other theatre festivals, as a way to present the finest off-off Broadway talent in convenience, comfort, and safety. The MITF’s artistic emphasis is on the script itself, and therefore the Festival focuses on minimal production values. If anything, the Midwinter Madness Short Play Festival, and Mr. Chatterton’s other showcases for short plays, take the theme of minimalism even further. As he puts it, “The shorter the plays, the more plays we have in one space, so the less space we have for each one. We learn to share.”
The Midwinter Madness Short Play Festival's media partner is LocalTheaterNYC.com.
Length: 1 hr 00 mins
Each reading will be followed by a reception and a "Dollars and Sense" panel with top industry professionals – commercial producers, general managers and artistic directors - who will discuss the further development of the show that is read. “Not only do we introduce audiences to new works, we also offer them an insider’s look at the producing process,” says TRU president Bob Ost.

Oklahomois a rocking musical about Dave and Gary, two oversized men in undersized spandex fighting for their right to love and live. It is a timeless underdog tale that tackles issues of gay rights and discrimination, and also has crotch blasting love rays, singing vaginas, a Jesus look-a-like and Rupaul. With its outrageous and hilarious book, and one of the most refreshing scores in ages, Oklahomois sure to please as many as it offends.

If you like music you will love this show! 6 Guitars is guitar slinging heartfelt comedy. It premiered at the 2010 Orlando International Fringe Festival where it won Producer of the Year, Best in Venue, Best Musician, Best Solo Show, Best Original Play and Best Male Performer. The Orlando Sentinel wrote, "It's just one guy - and one guitar - but it's amazing!" At the Edmonton Fringe Festival, North America’s largest, it was 1 of a handful of shows chosen from 185 for 2 holdover performances in a 300 seat venue – both sold out. The Edmonton sun said “5 Stars. The hour-long play will leave you doing two things: laughing until you cry, and lifting your jaw to its proper position.”
Chase Padgett delivers a tour de force performance as he becomes 6 different guitar players each with their own voice, views and music while also playing standard and original songs in the styles of Blues, Jazz, Rock, Classical, Folk and Country. The show takes the audience along each character's first introduction to the music they love, the lessons they've learned through music along the way and finally what the true importance of music really is to us all. It’s sure to make you laugh, love and tap your toes the whole way through.

Measure for Measure
-a dark comedy that examines justice and mercy in a city saturated with moral decline and government corruption.
Measure for Measure, American Bard Theater Company's second full length production is a dark comedy that examines justice and mercy in a city saturated with moral decline and government corruption. Measure for Measure will be performed Thursday, November 4th through Saturday, November 13th at the Roy Arias Theater Center, The Payan Theatre, 5th floor. Directed by Natalie Doyle Holmes.
In Measure for Measure, the Bard weaves a tale of power, sex, morality and personal demons that concludes in three weddings and no funerals. Often dubbed a problem play because tragic results loom large, Shakespeare uses disguise, buffoonery and mercy measured against overzealous judgment, treachery and lust to bring this complex story to a happy yet ironic ending.
The director, Natalie Doyle Holmes, explains, "My goal is to help the ensemble take this play, traditionally performed as a heavy drama, and showcase it as the dangerous comedy it truly is. We will be working together to explore the shades of gray in all humans". This production of Measure for Measure allows American Bard Theater Company to bring their talents to serve the play and entertain the audience.
Playing time is 130 minutes with one intermission.

Egypt. 1921. Lawrence of Arabia. Winston Churchill. Woodrow Wilson...and Agnes Shanklin? On the eve of the Cairo Peace Conference, a lonely American heiress becomes the confidant of diplomats and the target of the attentions of a possible German spy. Part travelogue, part history, part journey of self-discovery, Kirkus Reviews calls the novel “an inspired fictional study of political folly.”
Five actors: Rhonda Harrington*, Kiwi Callahan, David Eiduks,* Adam Segaller*, and Maria Silverman* bring 70 characters to life in locations as varied as a Cleveland living room, a steamboat on the Nile, and a shadowy purgatory.
