WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Monday, May 3rd at 7:00PM Retreat By Steven Levenson Directed by Evan Cabnet Dr. George Hartness has a revolutionary idea about how to treat the psychoses of the women in his care: talk to them. But while George practices his controversial new treatment, where is his wife? Who is she talking to? And what are they telling her? A striking play set in 1906 that examines what drives us crazy and what keeps us sane. Monday, May 10th at 7:00PM Nocturama By Annie Baker Directed by Sam Gold Depressive 26-year-old Brooklynite Skaggs Bernstein returns home to Vermont to live with his mother and videogame-obsessed stepfather.

A hilarious comedy from the critically acclaimed writer and director of Circle Mirror Transformation. Monday, May 17th at 7:00PM Pieces of Vincent By David Watson Directed by Lynne Meadow In London, a young man visits his old piano teacher, and two former lovers meet over cocktails. In Northern Ireland, a Police Officer must deliver shocking news. And in Birmingham, a teenage boy wants his old friend back. An intricately woven tale of loss and connection from an exciting new British voice. Monday, May 24th at 7:00PM There Are No More Big Secrets By Heidi Schreck Directed by Kip Fagan There was a time when Charles loved Gabe like a brother. But that was before Gabe disappeared to start a whole new life in Moscow. Now fifteen years later, he's arrived on Charles' doorstep seeking refuge for him and his Russian journalist wife. How well does Charles know Gabe? A bold play examining the mysteries we hide from those we love the most. Monday, June 7th at 7:00PM Stunt Girl Book and Lyrics by Peter Kellog Music by David Friedman Directed by Brian Yorkey Nellie Bly was a groundbreaking investigative journalist, an intrepid world traveler, and a captain of industry - all in a time before women had the right to vote. She's brought to tuneful life in a rollicking new musical about her hopes and heartbreak and fascinating times. Monday, June 14th at 7:00PM How The World Began By Catherine Trieschmann Directed by Carolyn Cantor When Manhattanite Susan Pierce accepts a job teaching biology in Plainview, Kansas, she's ready for more than a little culture shock, but she's not prepared for the violent controversy that seizes the town when she makes an off-handed comment about the origins of the universe. How the World Began was commissioned by Manhattan Theatre Club through the Alfred P. Sloan Initiative. Monday, June 21st at 7:00PM Oblivion By Carly Mensch Directed by Evan Cabnet When their seventeen-year-old daughter mysteriously disappears for the weekend, uber-hip Brooklynite parents Pam and Dixon fear the worst. But the truth turns out to be more shocking than anything they imagined. A fresh comedy about family, basketball, Pauline Kael, and what it means to ask the big questions.
