For a week in May 2019, we’ll landed on stage at The Flea.
Joined by our Spoolers, Eliza and Roger, Our crews combined sent out our rovers at The Flea with three outrageous new ideas to share.
Hook & Eye offered an early look at an original play about a narcissistic soldier from the Gulf War - a play about identity, responsibility, and community.
Queer Black/Filipinx writer Roger Q. Mason delivered a performance work about 1920s female impersonators inspired by a censored Mae West play.
Eliza Bent lead a cast who told a tale of the MTA's wayward past and perhaps glorious future in the form of a subway ride.
In the 1930’s, Eleanor Roosevelt championed the “She She She” camps as a New Deal program tailored for women, housed in America’s National Parks. Jobless women from across the country moved away from their home of origin to gain hospitality and forestry training, and developed a uniquely progressive and interestingly cooperative education along the way. She-She-She is inspired by the friendship between Roosevelt and Pauli Murray (architect of the civil rights and women’s movements, gender pioneer), sparked at Hudson Valley’s Camp Tera.
An engaging and urgent portrait of a world - and a man - on the brink. In 1969, an eccentric professor gathers a team of offbeat academics to play a game with one goal: make the world work for all humanity. What unfolds tears space-time as we are whisked from a beatnik cafe to a treetop congressional hearing and back by way of a university telephone. As the clock ticks, the lines blur between the game and the real world and we wonder if we've detached from reality altogether.
For three years, black clouds have blotted out the sun over Our America. A five-minute break in the clouds over a small town gives the whole nation hope… and compels a desperate government aided by a corporate conglomerate to sequester the town’s residents in a warehouse facility where they are made to recreate their actions at the cloudless moment . . .over and over. . . in the hopes of once again summoning the sun.
