Can You Dance To Vampire Weekend?

Written by Jimmy Berry & Directed by Rachel Sabo-Hedges.

 

CAN YOU DANCE TO VAMPIRE WEEKEND? Asher, a 30 year old weed dealer that lives in a garage, says yes (well, actually, he says “f*** yeah”). Eric, a 26 year old noodle, doesn’t really have a dog in this fight. When you ask him if he liked Father of the Bride, he just thinks you’re talking about a Steve Martin movie. He really just showed up at Asher’s place to buy some weed because…well, he’s not doing too well. But Asher’s got a date coming over, and he wasn’t expecting Eric, so they gotta make this quick. 

 

But is anything ever quick? Can You Dance To Vampire Weekend is about two people experiencing the harsh intersection of dreams and reality; of potential and production. We all want big things, but maybe the harsh truth is that we’re all just “sifting through centuries for moments of our own” (that’s a Vampire Weekend lyric - the new album is poetic tbh).

Donnie and Greg: An Unauthorized Transformative Work

Written and Directed by Sean Pollock 

DONNIE AND GREG is a new one act play centering on a blossoming gay high school romance at the height of the AIDS crisis in the late 80s, which lovingly transforms familiar elements from a famous 2001 horror/sci fi cult classic film featuring The Gyllenhaals and Drew Barrymore (you know the one) involving time travel, the music of Tears for Fears, parallel universes, paranormal orbs, and a freaky-looking bunny into a new unauthorized, transformative, theatrical work.

 

Diary of a Suicide

Conceived & Directed by Dmitri Barcomi, Adapted from the diaries of Andrzej Wróblewski.

 

In the rubble of postwar Poland, a young artist commits suicide again and again, trapped in an absurd and repetitive landscape. Andrzej Wróblewski, one of Poland’s most celebrated and shocking painters whose life was mysteriously cut short, left behind a staggering body of work never seen during his life, including a secret manuscript now exhumed onstage for the first time.
