Actor-playwright Mark E.

Mammoth is a poetic and seriously funny new play about love and destruction, invoking the nostalgia of science and the hard data of the human heart. At a moment in time where we can envision our own extinction, this atmospheric new play by Adam R. Burnett will meditate upon why we destroy what we love – from the personal to the universal – and once vanished, what compels us to revive what we've lost.
Journeying from the Siberian tundra to a genetic laboratory to your own backyard, Mammoth will be a bounding and far-reaching new work of theatre engaging the surreal and humorous tenor audiences have come to expect from Buran Theatre (The House of Fitzcarraldo, Magic Bullets).
Martyrs Street, a realistic drama by Misha Shulman, is a gripping tale of two houses in the historical city of Hebron, in the Occupied West Bank. Shulman is a New York-based playwright and former commander in the Israeli Defense Force. On a national level, the play examines the take-over of Israeli and Palestinian societies by their respective religious extremists. On an intimate level, it looks at the struggle between the personal and the political, which demands difficult choices on a daily basis from anyone living in that part of the world.
The play imagines two locations on the same street in Hebron, which together represent a microcosm of the occupation. Two separate systems of justice exist there for the two peoples. Violence and hatred are built into the fabric of language and being.
Set in a remote campsite of a national forest in Oregon, 28-year-old Melissa Golden, a lawyer, women's rights advocate and staunch environmentalist who believes in population control, must face the consequences of an unplanned pregnancy and her own surprising reaction to it.

The New Stage Theatre Company is proud to present the world premiere of Night, or Thyestes 2.0, a movement theatre piece written by Charles L. Mee and directed and designed by Ildiko Nemeth. Inspired by Seneca's Thyestes, the piece combines sections of the classic tale with an equally dark modern vision. A whirlwind of vivid scenes bridges the torture, murder and cannibalism dogging ill-fated Tantalus to modern plagues both frightening and banal, from war crimes to YouTube vapidity. In this world premiere performance, The New Stage Theatre Company brings its bold mix of standout choreography, video projection, costuming, lighting and sound to Mee's rhapsodic vision, resulting in a night of dazzlingly disorienting theatre.
An old love can be an irresistible force, especially for people in their autumn years. Is marriage an immoveable object? Old Flame, a new play by Richard Ploetz, weighs the force of an old romance against the strength of a 50-year marriage, examining our vulnerability to rediscovered passion, no matter what our age.
The play, set in Astoria, Queens in the year 2000, describes the romantic intrigues of people who are no longer young: in fact, they are now on the cusp of 70. Mike Ripley, a 72 year old Florida dentist who was Barbara Marchand's bad-boy high-school boyfriend, surprises her with a phone call on their shared birthday. This shakes up Barbara's 50-year marriage to Frank, a loving but bumbling tire salesman. Frank, not knowing how to fight for Barbara, is left to suffer in his own self-pity. Old Flame considers the question of what love is and if it changes over time. If Barbara finds her way back to Frank, will he -- should he -- accept her?
A mordant, wickedly subversive parable, set in a mental ward, the play chronicles the head-on collision between its hell-raising, life-affirming hero R. P. McMurphy and the totalitarian rule of Nurse Ratched. McMurphy swaggers into the mental ward like a blast of fresh air and turns the place upside down. But McMurphy's revolution against Nurse Ratched and everything she stands for quickly turns from sport to a fierce power struggle with shattering results. One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest is based on the award winning novel by Ken Kesey of the same name, which also inspired the legendary film which garnered 5 Academy Awards.

"The writing here is insightful and often funny" – The New York Times
Peter Kleinert (Berlin's Schaubuhne Theatre) directs the Irondale ensemble in a production of Bertolt Brecht's master-work Saint Joan of the Stockyards. Irondale will present this epic tale of romance between a meatpacking tycoon and a Salvation Army worker set amidst the milieu of money, high-rolling millionaires, and corporate greed.
"I want Irondale's St. Joan to come right out of Brooklyn," says director Peter Kleinert. Originally set in 1920's Chicago, Brecht's drama focuses the driving issues of the pursuit of justice in a system driven by profit, and the individual in a fight for what is good and against society. Performed at Irondale for the first time since 1993, an ensemble of actors presents this non-Aristotelian drama laced with humor and songs as part of its epic dramturgical structure.
