In Our Own Image  | Open: 07/18/10 Close: 07/31/10
Midtown International Theatre Festival presents an Agony Productions production: IN OUR OWN IMAGE, a compilation of three one act plays in differing styles: Wally and Jesus, Big Boy Two Scoop, and Who Art In.

Wally and Jesus is a humorous exploration of death and our use of religion to deflect personal turmoil. Who do you blame when your mom gets shot? Jesus, of course!

Big Boy Two Scoop is a frank exploration of living up to our parents’ dreams as two men struggle to reconcile the consequences of their faltered relationship.

Who Art In focuses on a confused man as he interrupts Gaby and Howard, who are working to rewrite religious doctrine in this absurdist look at the consequences of our societal behavior.

IN OUR OWN IMAGE stars Renee Barnett*, James Jacobus*, and Matt Welsh, is stage managed by Heather Olmstead*, and is directed by Christopher Diercksen, Christopher Heath, and MaryBeth Smith.

Not My Daughter  | Open: 07/14/09 Close: 08/01/09
Not My Daughter is a comedy about making life's hard decisions and, even worse, living with one's choices. Lea Finley's life is perfect as she signs not only the lease on her first New York apartment but also her contract as the leading lady in a Broadway musical. Everything changes, however, when last-minute rewrites include a love scene. Lea's parents must confront their own image of their little girl as an adult as she bares it all in front of them--and thousands of theatre going New Yorkers.

Bartholomew Fair, Nj  | Open: 07/17/09 Close: 07/28/09
A corrupt and crazy carnival sets the stage for Bartholomew Fair, NJ, a fast-paced, fast-witted comedy in verse inspired by Ben Jonson’s 1641 clash of classes. Set in New Jersey in 1985, our tale follows John & Win Littlewit as they venture to the fair to see an all-sock production of Romeo & Juliet — “the puppet adaptation of our time.” Populated by a cast of more than 20 quirky characters — including Win’s moral mother, a tricky teamster and a naked messenger named Wasp — this Fair is a blast and a blast to the past! Featuring five hysterical actors who play every character in the book, Bartholomew Fair, NJ is 80 delirious minutes of delightful hijinks.
