Play | Women Without Men: Drama Laced with Humor (virtual, streaming for 24 hours)


Women Without Men is a workplace drama laced with biting humor, set in the teacher's lounge of a private girls' boarding school in Ireland in the 1930s. The play explores the clash of conflicting natures and petty competitions that erupt amongst the school's cloistered teaching staff. Playwright Hazel Ellis began her theatrical career in the 1930s as a member of the acting ensemble of the Gate Theatre in Dublin. She went on to write two plays for the company, including Women Without Men which was produced at the Gate in 1938. Despite acclaim, the play was never published or revived -- until the Mint Theater produced the play's belated American premiere to much acclaim in 2016 at New York City Center Stage II. This is an archival recording. Streaming is available until Apr 18th.

Play | Pen/Man/Ship: Broadway Actors in a Period Drama (virtual)


1896. When Ruby, a young Black woman fleeing the American South, boards a ship bound for Liberia, she finds herself at odds with her companion’s domineering, God-fearing father and his mysterious expedition. Unwilling to sit passively below deck, she befriends the crew, becoming entangled in a mutinous uprising that threatens them all. Performed live with breakthrough technology and expansive visuals that put the audience aboard the troubled vessel, pen/man/ship is a heart-pounding story of truth-seeking at all cost and a powerful reminder of the dangerous limits of self-righteousness. Written by Christina Anderson (Playwrights Horizons, The Public Theatre, Yale Repertory Theatre) Directed by Lucie Tiberghien The cast features Lucille Lortel Award winner Crystal Lucas-Perry (A Bright Room Called Day at the Public Theater), Kevin Mambo ("Marvel's Luke Cage" on Netflix, Fela in Broadway's Fela!), Jared McNeill (HBO's "We Are Who We Are," Battlefield at BAM) and Postell Pringle (Broadway's A Free Man of Color, FX's "Rescue Me").

Our state is wrought with disease, injustice, and inequity. The justice system is flawed and ineffective, so many citizens do not take it seriously. The duke appoints a deputy to govern in his absence as he travels on official business to the capital. The deputy has a man arrested under a previously unenforced law and sentenced to death. The imprisoned man calls for his sister to appeal to the deputy and save his life. How can she appeal to this deputy to save her brother? How will the deputy assert his new temporary powers in response to her? Presented by New School MFA Shakespeare Studio.
