RED DOG HOWLS Written by Alexander Dinelaris Directed by Ken Rus Schmoll
A box of old letters and a father’s dying wish lead Michael Kiriakos to dig up the buried secrets of his family history. After a series of mysterious encounters with Rose, a captivating elderly Armenian woman, Michael eventually uncovers a past he never knew existed - one of exile, sacrifice and ultimately redemption.
Written by Alexander Dinelaris (“Still Life”) and directed by Ken Rus Schmoll,“Red Dog Howls” explores the horror of a forgotten genocide, the enduring strength of the human spirit and how the choices we make for our children will – for better or worse – reverberate for generations to come.
A CIVIL WAR CHRISTMAS By Paula Vogel Directed by Tina Landau
Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Paula Vogel (How I Learned to Drive) weaves a rich tapestry of a beleaguered and divided nation, war-weary and desperate for goodwill, on a blustery Christmas Eve in 1864. Through the personal stories and struggles of a wide range of historical figures and fictional characters – from the President’s wife to runaway slaves, Union and Confederate soldiers to Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and Walt Whitman – we learn that, for all their differences, one thing is clear: the yearning for peace cuts across religious and class divisions, color lines and, of course, the Mason-Dixon Line.
At once familiar and freshly re-imagined, the story of that winter night is alive with history, hope and humanity. Vividly staged by director Tina Landau and infused throughout with traditional carols and period music, A Civil War Christmas takes a sprawling new look at the seemingly intractable challenges we once faced to see how far we’ve come as a nation and how far we still have to go.
BELLEVILLE Written by Amy Herzog Directed by Anne Kauffman
Heralded by the New York Times as "thrillingly good," Belleville, the newest drama from acclaimed playwright Amy Herzog (4000 Miles, After the Revolution) and director Anne Kauffman (Detroit, This Wide Night), is a chilling, Hitchcockian, look at the limits of trust, truth, deception and dependency in a world where both love and loss can be pathological and cathartic. Of its 2011 premiere at Yale Repertory Theatre, Charles Isherwood of The New York Times wrote, Belleville "confirms [Herzog's] reputation as one of the brightest new talents in the theater."
Abby and Zack - young, American and married - have abandoned the stability of a comfortable post-graduate life in the states for Belleville, a bustling, bohemian, multicultural neighborhood in Paris. In an attempt to build a life together away from family and friends, their passive-aggressive and aggressively passionate relationship is put to test after an awkward afternoon discovery, a landlord's ultimatum and a cracked toenail.
SONTAG: REBORN Based on the book by Susan Sontag and edited by David Rieff Adapted & performed by Moe Angelos
Directed by Marianne Weems Produced in collaboration with The Builders Association
Adapted from the first volume of Susan Sontag’s journals written between 1947 and 1963 by performer Moe Angelos, Sontag: Reborn is a tender look at the prolific essayist before she was a world-renowned author and activist. As the young Sontag wrestles with her emerging confidence and innate insecurity, her journey to womanhood and notoriety is as stilted by frailty and doubt as it is driven by determination and curiosity. The refuge of her diary is integral to her development as a writer as well as her personal growth and maturity. Sontag says herself, “In the journal I do not just express myself more openly than I could in person. I create myself."
Directed by Marianne Weems and using the Builders' signature synthesis of poetic video and sound, this tightly-crafted story of self-discovery and sexual identity is both exuberant and intimate, exploring the private life, loves and idiosyncrasies of the iconic intellectual.Sontag: Reborn reveals, through her own words, that before there was Sontag, there was Susan.
