As New York’s premiere hub for emerging artists and new work, Ars Nova is committed to developing and producing eclectic theatre, comedy and music to feed today’s popular culture. To that end, Ars Nova strives to create daring collaborations, meld disciplines and give voice to a new generation of artists. Last season, Ars Nova developed and produced critically acclaimed productions of Peter Sinn Nachtrieb’s Boom, Liz Flahive’s From Up Here (in a co-production with Manhattan Theatre Club), and Nick Jones and Raja Azar’s Jollyship the Whiz-Bang. Past productions include Dixie’s Tupperware Party, At Least It’s Pink, 25 Questions for a Jewish Mother, Holy Cross Sucks!, Freestyle Love Supreme and The Wau Wau Sisters. In addition to its featured productions, Ars Nova supports and develops new work from the most promising emerging artists through its alternative comedy series (Tragedy Tomorrow), music series (Uncharted), public play-reading series (Out Loud), developmental residency program (Residency Encores) writer's group (Play Group) and artist-in-residence program. Ars Nova was founded in memory of Gabe Wiener.
HER OWN DEVICES
By Lindsay Adams
Directed by Jade King Carroll
Inspired by Mary Chase's Pulitzer Prize winning HARVEY, HER OWN DEVICES shares the story of Madeleine, a young girl with a rare autoimmune disorder that forces her to spend her life in a lab, as doctors run endless tests. She copes with the help of her imaginary friend Robot, and ultimately must decide whether or not to leave the only home she’s known.
A reception will follow the play reading.
The reading will be live streamed on Howlround.com/tv
