'Inherit the wind'

 

By Lawrence & Lee

 

Directed by: Dan Foster

 

Inherit the Wind is courtroom drama is based on the 1925 Scopes "Monkey Trial," in which a Tennessee teacher was charged with teaching that man evolved from apes, instead of state-mandated Creationism. The drama contains a powerful confrontation between a character based on William Jennings Bryan, who believes only what he reads in the Bible, and another based on Clarence Darrow, who defends science and open intellectual inquiry.

Winner of both the Pulitzer Prize and the Tony Award for Best Play, Clybourne Park by Bruce Norris is a razor-sharp satire about the politics of race. Two scenes, fifty years apart, are both set in the same modest bungalow on Chicago’s northwest side. In 1959, Russ and Bev are moving out to the suburbs after the tragic death of their son. Inadvertently, they have sold their house to the neighborhood’s first black family. Fifty years later in 2009, the roles are reversed when a young white couple buys the lot in what is now a predominantly black neighborhood, signaling a new wave of gentrification. In both instances, a community showdown takes place, pitting race against real estate with this home as the battleground.

In this harrowing and witty play, John and Victoria lead a storybook life: happy family, prestigious jobs, beautiful home and above all, a marriage built on trust and communication -- their greatest strength as a couple is always being "on the same page". So a little fender bender on a rainy night is nothing they can't handle, though the circumstances remain questionable.Guests arrive at their home unexpectedly, bringing their own little drama. Now this perfect couple must decide which is more terrifying: to face a horrible truth together or risk admitting that they've each been living different stories.

 

This program is made possible by the generosity of the Croton Free Library and grants from ArtsWestchester and the New York State Council on the Arts.

WILL by Jon Glascoe- Staged Reading

Saturday december 6th

19:00 in

EST

Off Center for the Dramatic Arts in Burlington (Vermont)

 

WILL is a partially fictionalized chronicle of Shakespeare’s experiences during the period in his life when he was about to write Hamlet. It is the eve of the Essex Rebellion, a plot to overthrow Queen Elizabeth, for which Shakespeare is accused of having had a part in inciting. Glascoe offers an unflinching exploration of the era’s political unrest and royal influence as well as the personal pain and artistic dreams of the man we have come to know as the greatest playwright of all time.

 

The staged reading is being directed by Vermont Shakespeare Company Executive Director John Nagle and features the following actors in the cast: Kassandra Bell, Bruce Campbell, Garrett Kimberly, Jena Necrason, Molly Pietz Walsh, Scott Renzoni, Mark Roberts, Mary-Kate Scanlon, Paul Schnabel, Craig Wells, Ruth Wallman, and Eric Sheffer-Stevens as William Shakespeare. Eric was most recently seen as Edmund in King Lear with John Lithgow at The Delacorte Theatre in New York.

Reading of the screenplay

"WILL"

by Jon Glascoe

Saturday november 16th 2013

 

The Atrium, 725 Fifth Avenue NY, NY

(between 56th and 57th Streets)

Jon Glascoe is a writer, producer and director who co-founded NYC's Cyprus Films in 1996. He now lives and writes in Vermont.

WILL tells the story of William Shakespeare. It is about the mystery of genius -- a mystery to the man who has it, as much as to those who wonder at it. But it's also an epic, a universal story of freedom and humanity in a tumultuous time when the modern world as we know it was being formed.

 

Emerging Artists Theatre Presents

A BEAUTIFUL SPELL by Greg Kalleres

Directed by Liesl Tommy with

Eric Sheffer Stevens & Jenny Sheffer Stevens

Monday September 14th 2009

TADA! Theater

15 W. 28th st, 2nd Fl, New York

 

 

In A Beautiful Spell, Jim and Franny wake up in the middle of the night panicked to discover that they no longer love each other. Is it real or just a night terror? Frightened and confused, the couple struggles desperately to get back what they’ve lost – before the sun comes up. A Beautiful Spell exposes the deep and sometimes painful truths that lie beneath the surface of wedded bliss in this hilarious and touching new play.

 

 

If you already know Greg's work, we know you will love A Beautiful Spell. And if you don't know Greg, you must. So this is the perfect opportunity.

 

Eric and I have had the pleasure of being involved with this play for several months now. Some of you attended an informal, earlier reading. I know those who did will concur - it is smart, funny, provocative, moving, sexy, insightful, devilishly well-acted, and now, to sweeten the deal, we have added the brilliant Liesl Tommy as Director, and, for atmosphere and street cred, an actual theatre.

 

It will be a great evening, and we're anticipating a fantastic turn-out.
