A FOOTNOTE IN HISTORY*
July 5 – 8
It's 1983 and America is sending its first female astronaut into space, breaking the ultimate glass ceiling. A rollicking, genre-bending meditation on being an “American First” that looks back to ask how far we’ve traveled, how far we’ve come.

A smoker’s cessation group resurrects Aldous Huxley, doomsday preppers take on the biggest blackout in NYC history, and Russian robots of war occupy our future in this triptych of plays about people who have the capacity to change themselves - and perhaps the world - for the better. If only they weren't selfish, gluttonous, and self-righteous.
YELLOW CARD RED CARD
August 2 – 5
A play-and-sporting-event-in-one, YELLOW CARD RED CARD tells the story of four female soccer players in a small Muslim town in Northern Cameroon as they prepare for a championship, and the rest of their lives.
August 9 – 12
A woman gives a lecture about the brain. A woman bakes a cake. Fuck that. War is coming. A woman puts on a large hat and pushes a sharp object through an eye socket. Chalk dust falls from the ceiling. Two monkeys talk about the ways the brain processes pain. Becky and Lucy. Dr. Walter Freeman. Count backwards from ten. Becky and Lucy. Becky and Lucy. War is coming, always. A multidisciplinary fantasia about the ways we cope.
