Inside a house, a house in a series of houses on a fraternity row, a house in which DVDs serve as coasters and drool stains the sofa, live three roommates far past their college days. A thousand girlfriends come and gone, a thousand drinks downed, a thousand parties crashed–every night the same, until now. There's a party tonight, but it is not the blaring music that makes sleep impossible. Tonight, these bachelors will understand what their choices have really gotten them.

Dry Powder is the viciously, deliciously funny new drama about the people molding and messing with the American economy.

But Jenny, Seth's counterpart, has an entirely different plan: to squeeze every last penny out of the company, no matter the human toll.

How to Get Into Buildings takes an exploded view of love, in which confusion blends with confidence, time keeps shifting, amateurs are experts, and brunch can be fatal.
As a blueprint for her play, Harnetiaux used the structure of exploded view: an illustration or diagram used in manuals (for lawnmowers, bicycles, computers) that shows an object's parts apart from the whole, but in positions that indicate their relationship to it. Roger and Lucy meet in a convention hall, Daphne and Nick break down at a diner, their stories intertwine as the play swirls around you, rotating on its axis, to articulate the experience of love, with its alternating moments of intimacy and isolation.

In an interrogation room in an unnamed totalitarian dictatorship, Katurian, a writer, is being interrogated by two detectives. Next door, Katurian's mentally disabled brother Michal waits. The detectives want to know why Katurian's stories feature gruesome plots about child murder and torture, and in particular, why they seem to mirror a string of recent child murders in the area. This brutal dark comedy from Martin McDonagh, the master of the horror-comedy, poses unanswerable questions: Can stories hold the power to cause atrocities? Where is the line between truth and fairy tale? Is a life of horror worth living at all?

Pier Paolo Pasolini was a filmmaker, poet and one of Italy's leading intellectuals. His adaptation of Pylade, a contemporary reinterpretation of the relationship between Pylades and Orestes from Greek mythology and the Oresteia, is a poetic, tragic meditation on democracy, consumerism, and the struggle for real social change. The rhythm and emotion of Pasolini's text, translated into English by Adam Paolozza and Coleen MacPherson, is heightened by the music and movement incorporated into this production by Buljan and GJRC, to create a total theatre of movement, text, spectacle and music.

Arguably, St. Ann's Warehouse is the only NY theater capable of staging Benedict Andrews' maverick production of A Streetcar Named Desire, featuring Gillian Anderson, Ben Foster, Corey Johnson and Vanessa Kirby.

The New York Times called the production "a wounding portrait of communal loss."
An award-winning play about the impact of war on women, Trash Story is a complex and harrowing tale. Told through the eyes of Ursulka, the play poses important questions about violence, both historical and contemporary, and the secrets it leaves behind. The action is set in a house formerly owned by Germans in the Recovered Territories, now inhabited by Poles, and asks vital questions about the continuity of historical experience. "I imagine memory as a net which we throw to recover waste. As it falls deeper it catches the heaviest waste accumulated at the bottom. This play is full of such trash: historical, familial, concealed. Our collective memory is so littered and until we clean it up, the future generations will not be able to build anything on it," says playwright Magda Fertacz.
