International Women Artists' Salon presents a showcase of performance, literature, and video.
Nora and Delia Ephron's Love, Loss, and What I Wore is an assortment of stories based on Ilene Beckerman's autobiography and recollections of the Ephrons and their friends. It was all the rage when it debuted, going on to bag the 2010 Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Experience. Not only that — the show stayed in style, running for three years off-Broadway and catching on internationally. Now 92Y and Daryl Roth have reunited a stunning cast to fashion a one-night reading out of this funny and touching piece.
This play centers on Mrs. Warren, who, forced by the economic realities of 19th-century London, becomes a prostitute. Later she runs several successful brothels to finance her daughter's upbringing and education. When her daughter finds out, confrontations ensue.
Mrs. Warren's Profession is regarded as one of George Bernard Shaw's most accomplished plays, though only his third. Through the characterization of Mrs. Warren, Shaw exposes the corruption and hypocrisy of the "genteel" class. As he notes in his Apology, "Mrs. Warren's defence of herself and indictment of society is the thing that most needs saying."
Red Bull Theater's OBIE Award-winning Revelation Readings present staged readings of new and rarely performed classic plays from all eras and cultures.
From the Great Griffon comes Seeking the Queer Voice, a monthly reading series. The Great Griffon is a nonprofit company dedicated to creating new media, film, and theater that breaks gender and LGBTQ stereotypes. Inaugurating its reading series is a performance of Doug DeVita's The Phillie Trilogy, winner of the 2016 Scrap Mettle Arts Inaugural Playwrights Program Competition. The play follows Philip McDougal through three interconnecting stories about the discovery of his sexuality. James Phillip Gates directs.
Join host Emmy Laybourne, as she welcomes novelists to reveal stories from their lives at the winter installment of the critically acclaimed literary event Spine Out.
