Monarch Theater Company presents two works as part of The Loft Plays. Storia: A touching and humorous tale of an Italian and Peruvian family migrating to America, returns to New York City after the sold out European premiere at South Hill Park. Spanning five generations, the play charts journeys of hope, loss, love, and trial under the direction of Jennifer Ortega. Winner for Outstanding Performance in a Solo Show by Midtown International Theatre Festival, Troy Diana is described as "a captivating performer and a joy on stage. He truly comprehends the art of the one-man show." (NYTheater.com) The Interim: A World premiere play written, directed, and performed by Julie Troost and Scott Troost, The Interim tells the story of a man and a woman who find themselves at an open grave site, not quite sure how they got there. Caught in the narrow space between life and death and in a world that defies reality, these two souls must wait to find out what happens after their bodies expire.
