Presented in the newly created Write Act Repertory Theater in the heART of Times Square comes Jello Shots, a presentation of one act plays by young and talented directors and producers.
Two sisters, Solange and Claire, struggle to believe their existence as maids is anything but sub-human. Each night they enact a secret fantasy while their mistress is away. When their attempt to destroy Madame's love affair goes awry, their hopes for transcendence grow increasingly slim. A desperate hunger for dignity drives their sadistic ritual to new depths.
The Maids is a dazzling mirror maze of identity, status and cruelty. Outliers Theatre Co. is proud to debut with our intimate production of Genet's beautiful and controversial play.
Nicknamed "The American Idol for playwrights," the Strawberry One-Act Festival has been presenting New York premieres and world premieres of short theatrical works submitted for competition from across the country. Since 1995, it has produced over 1,500 one-act plays. The Strawberry One-Act Festival features a playoff-style competition, in which the audience members vote for their favorites, selecting six finalists. Reflecting the diversity written into the mission of its presenter, the Strawberry One-Act and Theater Festival features plays that vary in length (from 15 to 90 minutes) and deal with wide array of topics, from stories of human connection and comedic takes on love and sex to works dealing with pressing social and political issues like teenage suicide, women's rights and gun control.
Applauded by The New York Times as "shamelessly clever and deeply satisfying!" this acclaimed festival of new American short plays from some of the country's top playwrights returns to 59E59 Theaters for a tenth consecutive season! Representing some of today's best writing, directing, and acting talents, Summer Shorts celebrates theater, summer, and the short form. The festival's two separate series of three plays each will run in rotating repertory and offer a diverse range of voices, styles, and subject matter.
