JERICHO  | Open: 01/20/18 Close: 02/10/18
Based on the play LILIOM by Hungarian master Ferenc Molnár (which inspired Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Carousel), JERICHO by award-winning screenwriter and playwright Michael Weller, revolves around the love affair between a scoundrel carousel barker and a maid at a Catholic Young Women’s Inn. His confused violent passion and her simple unshakable devotion, form the combustible heart of this dark fairytale for grown-ups. Staying true to Molnár’s marginal Budapest, Weller sets JERICHO at Coney Island during the Great Depression of the 1930s; a place and time when work was scarce, and life was a matter of desperate survival.

 

Featuring Broadway veteran Stephanie Pope* (Pippin, Fosse, Chicago and Chicago National Tours, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Kiss of the Spider Woman, Jelly’s Last Jam, The Will Rogers Follies, Sweet Charity, Big Deal), Ginna Doyle* (An American Daughter and Orpheus in the Berkshires at Williamstown), Noelle Franco* (Les Liaisons Dangereuses at Center Stage; TV’s Blue Bloods), Vasile Fluter (Tamburlaine at Theater for A New Audience), Jerzy Gwiazdowski* (Julie Taymor’s Across the Universe), Erinn Holmes* (Disgraced at Fulton Theatre), Jamal James* (Shakespeare In Love at Baltimore Center Stage), Hannah Sloat* (War Horse on Broadway), and Jack Sochet* (Cora and Dave are Getting Older at EST, Word to the Action at The Public; TV’s Gotham).

STRINGS  | Open: 07/17/17 Close: 07/20/17
Inspired by the deaths of Trayvon Martin and other nameless black men, Strings follows a man set to be executed, a lawyer with an ulterior motive, and the strings that bind them both. While Derek prepares to defend the man he just met, they each find that no one is truly innocent. This show speaks of friendship, race, and a corrupt system. It speaks to the fact that no matter how fast we run, our past catches up with us eventually.

“I wanted to give voice to the scores of men of color that die needlessly in this country. Not just by those in uniform, but by our own hands. I wanted to challenge myself in writing this piece, and in doing so, I found a piece that continues to transform before my eyes. I am grateful for the opportunity to present my work at this prestigious festival,” noted Charles Curtis, playwright and director.

MURROW  | Open: 05/04/16 Close: 05/22/16
“Murrow,” a one-character play in two acts, traces the life of famed broadcast journalist Edward R. Murrow from his beginnings as a young man growing up in Washington State, to his entry into radio with the fledgling CBS radio network, to his famed broadcasts from London during the “blitz,” to his on-air showdown with Senator Joseph McCarthy  in 1954. The play ends as Murrow is forced off the air by his one-time friend and mentor Bill Paley when Murrow’s penchant for controversial programs becomes too risky for the CBS Corporation to bear. More than just a biography of one of the icons of American journalism, “Murrow” is ultimately a powerful, scathing indictment of the modern corporate-media complex.

BECAUSE ME  | Open: 10/02/15 Close: 11/07/15
Self-proclaimed artist Else Barnes works at Trader Joe's and creates artwork from discarded yogurt cartons.

Be A Good Little Widow  | Open: 09/12/13 Close: 09/22/13
Melody (Aamira Welthy) is an adult or at least she thinks she is. She has a house in the burbs, a successful lawyer husband Craig (Peter O'Connor*) with a cute assistant Brad (Lucas Salvagno), even a disapproving mother in law, Hope (Chris Holliday), to contend with. But between midday yoga, interior decorating, and dinner parties Melody feels something just isn't right.

When the unthinkable happens Melody is thrust into a world of black dresses and funeral plans but can Hope really teach her what it means to Be A Good Little Widow?

Directed by Elena Araoz, Be A Good Little Widow is a surprising dark comedy that explores love, loss, and everything that comes after.

Miss Mary Dugan  | Open: 07/19/12 Close: 07/28/12


Miss Mary Dugan (aka Ty Pendleberry) lives in Cedar Chips, New Jersey, a pretty little town he calls the West Hollywood of the East Coast. With his fabulous parties, Mary Dugan is “hostess with the most-ess” of gay Cedar Chips. He can cook and bake anything, from Chicken Divan to éclairs and his parties sometimes last all night long. Despite his charm and skills, Dugan hasn’t had much luck with men, and many of his nights are spent alone with porn, Doritos and Stoli.

 

He has a crush on the good-looking, mysterious guy next door. He lives next door to a funeral parlor. A chance encounter in the parking lot with Kevin, the object of his affection, throws him for a loop. It forces him to ask: what does he really want--his fantasy or the prospect of getting to know his hunky neighbor in real time?

 

First presented at the 2009 Fresh Fruit Festival, Miss Mary Dugan won “Fruitee” Awards for

Best Play, Best Director (David Hilder) and Best Actor (Craig Fox). Craig Fox will reprise his prize- winning role of Kevin Pecinka in this production, making it something of a reunion of Fresh Fruit veterans. Bryan Webster, who plays Mary Dugan, starred in Whore Works, the co-winner of the 2010 Best Play Award at the Fresh Fruit Festival (the other winner was Igrejas’ Hassan and Sylvia) and starred in the Festival’s critically acclaimed, Passing Ceremonies in 2009. Karin de la Penha starred as the mysterious Sylvia in Hassan and Sylvia and directs this re-staging of Miss Mary Dugan. Manuel Igrejas’ previous plays include Shrinkage, Kitty and Lina and Hassan and Sylvia. For more about himself: www.mannyigrejas.com.

Goliath  | Open: 05/23/12 Close: 06/03/12
Poetic Theater Productions remounts Goliath by Takeo Rivera, recipient of the 2011 Planet Connections Award for Outstanding Overall Production of a New Play, May 23rd-June 3rd at the Wild Project (195 E 3rd St). The production is once again directed by Alex Mallory (2011 Planet Connections Award for Outstanding Direction) and features return ensemble members Samantha Cooper, Dontonio Demarco, Natalia Duong, Edgar Eguia and Monique Paige (2011 Planet Connections Award for Outstanding Ensemble) and newcomers Kenneth Heaton, Iliana Inocencio and Nabil Viñas. Goliath features lighting design by Brad Peterson, fight choreography by Jim Cairl and stage management by Sarah Livant.

Told from seven different perspectives, Goliath tells the heartbreaking tale of one young soldier’s war story, from home to the front and back again. Using a poetic landscape inspired by Ntozake Shange, a Greek chorus and spoken word in the style of Russell Simmons’ Def Poetry, Goliath is a theatrical meditation on war and masculinity; a glimpse into what we do during times of war and of what it means to love when violence is part of the norm.

Goliath was previously presented as part of the 2011 Planet Connections Theatre Festivity where it received five awards including Outstanding Production of a New Play, Outstanding Direction, Outstanding Ensemble, Outstanding Playwriting, Outstanding Lead Actor and Actress, Outstanding Supporting Actor and Actress, and Outstanding Lighting Design. Goliath was named to Show Showdown’s Top Ten of 2011.
