Show Up  | Open: 09/14/17 Close: 09/30/17
"Show Up" returns to NYC after a triumphant, critically acclaimed, sold out run at the Edinburgh Fringe. In "Show Up," award-winning solo show performer, producer and SOLOCOM creator Peter Michael Marino ("Desperately Seeking the Exit," "Late with Lance!") uses his decades of solo performance expertise to turn the often vilified clichés of the genre on their clichéd heads. Marino exploits an arsenal of Post-it® Notes to compile and transform the challenging and enlightening real-life audience experiences into a single vibrant life-story that is daring and unique each time. Chance elements are increased as audience members are engaged to cue lights, design the set, and direct. "Show Up" provides a wild, unpredictable ride for the audience as Marino navigates this high wire, simultaneously commenting on social anxiety, depression and performance challenges. And there's a party! www.showuptheshow.com

Snow  | Open: 05/20/16 Close: 06/05/16
Exploring the power and importance of storytelling, Snow (a new play written by pop culture phenomenon Forever Deadward creator Ashley Griffin) follows three disparate storylines that all revolve around the fairy tale Snow White. Utilizing a structure similar to Cloud Atlas and The Hours, six actors playing multiple roles tell the stories of the Grimm Brothers (who originally collected and published the classic fairy tales), the Campbells (a Victorian theatrical family whose lives begin to mirror Snow White), and modern day Astrid (a young woman who, after her abusive mother puts her in a coma, must decide whether or not to wake up). Incorporating aspects of American Gods, and classic storytelling techniques a la Peter and the Starcatcher, Snow is a dark and moving play that mines our storytelling traditions both in style and subject matter.

This work contains adult subject matter, including the death of a child, sexual content and drug use. It is not recommended for small children. Parental discretion advised.

Featuring Gracie Beardsley, Ryan Clardy*, Maria Deasy*, Ashley Griffin*, Mark A. Keeton*, and Ian Way*

HAMLET  | Open: 11/12/15 Close: 11/17/15
HAMLET: A Strong Woman

Is equality a state of mind or state of affairs? Can gender ever be freed from the masculine/feminine paradigm? The patriarchal state may seem a thing of the past but what if the struggle for power and survival make it our future. Inspired by the “He For She” Campaign, a first of its kind, which acknowledges the need for men in the women’s movement, A.N.O.N. Productions is proud to present a new take on HAMLET, set in the near future. In a militarized surveillance state, can a woman be in charge? This gender-bending equality driven take on HAMLET will premiere under St. Mark’s (94 St. Mark’s Place) November 12th -14th at 2 and 7pm, and at The Kraine (85 East 4th Street) November 15th – 17th.

“If we stop defining each other by what we are not and start defining ourselves by what we are—we can all be freer and this is what HeForShe is about. It’s about freedom.”
- Emma Watson, Ambassador, “HeForShe Campaign”

Directed by Ashley Griffin and featuring: Michael Bauer*, Annabel Capper*, Jennifer-Elizabeth Cooper, Nevin Edmundson, Ashley Griffin*, Kari Grunberg*, James Luse*, Brian McCormack*, Danielle Sacks* and Ian Way*, Casting by Daryl Eisenberg Casting; Our Hamlet is a woman raised to be a man and ruthless leader. Our Ophelia is a man, bullied for being too gentle. All sexes being equal, who has the power?

On the Internet everyone can hear you scream.

What happens when it's your job to be friends with someone? When do you compromise artistic integrity for cash? Two Internet personalities skyrocket to stardom with a new “Let’s Play” video game show. But when a female gamer joins them, things get ugly. And then even uglier.

Let’s Play Play by Ben Ferber is about selling out, and how we use Internet personalities as replacements for real friends. It also embodies the infamously horrifying vitriol of YouTube comments and gamergate.
