Staged Reading |


All's Well That Ends Well is a play by William Shakespeare, published in the First Folio in 1623. Though originally the play was classified as one of Shakespeare's comedies, the play is now considered by some critics to be one of his problem plays, so named because they cannot be neatly classified as tragedy or comedy.  The Shakespeare readings are set up to make Shakespeare accessible. The readings are usually without rehearsal, but they are on-your-feet Instant staged readings where the actors move around as much as they feel comfortable.

A unique afternoon of words and music honouring two of the most celebrated Village writers, Edna St Vincent Millay and Jack Kerouac. In Kissing in the Village: Edna St Vincent Millay on Bedford Street, Lucy McDiarmid, author and scholar, will reflect on the life and work of the feminist and activist whose Pulitzer Prize-winning poetry captured the defiance and free-spiritedness of her generation. Professor McDiarmid grew up in the Village and was taught by one of the Millay's lovers. Jack Kerouac will be celebrated by composer and multi-instrumentalist David Amram, who knew the writer well and created with him the first ever jazz/poetry readings in New York City in 1957. Amram, The Village Trip's Artist-in-Residence, will perform Jack Kerouac's Blues in the Afternoon. The afternoon closes with a world premiere of David Amram's arrangement for saxophone and piano of his evocative Greenwich Village Portraits, which celebrates three old friends--all key Village figures--Arthur Miller, Odetta and Frank McCourt. It will be performed by Ken Radnovsky, saxophonist with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and pianist Yoshiko Kline.

Performance |


Antigone in Ferguson was conceived in the wake of Michael Brown’s death in 2014, through a collaboration between Theater of War Productions and community members from Ferguson, Missouri. Translated and directed by Bryan Doerries and composed by Phil Woodmore, the project fuses a dramatic reading by leading actors of excerpts from Sophocles’s Greek tragedy with live choral music performed by a choir of activists, police officers, youth, and concerned citizens from Ferguson and New York City. The performance is the catalyst for panel and audience-driven discussions on race and social justice, the core component of the event. This multifaceted production will offer a glimpse not only into the effects of the tragedy in Brown’s local community, but also the trauma of police violence and racial injustice in communities of color in New York and across the nation. Local stakeholders and community leaders will participate as panelists, assisting in opening up dialogues with audiences. These guided discussions, which aim to promote healing and bridge the growing divide between law enforcement and local communities, will focus on the impact of racialized violence against communities of color, and the legacies of the tragic deaths of Michael Brown, as well as Eric Garner, Amadou Diallo, Sean Bell, Saheed Vassell, and numerous other victims. The presentation will feature a rotating roster of acclaimed actors, including Samira Wiley (The Handmaid’s Tale), who will reprise the role she portrayed in the premiere of Antigone in Ferguson presented on the stage of Michael Brown’s high school in Ferguson in 2016. Other cast members include: Paul Giamatti (Billions), Tamara Tunie (Law & Order: SVU), David Strathairn (Good Night, and Good Luck), Adepero Oduye (12 Years a Slave), Frankie Faison (The Wire) and Kathryn Erbe (Law & Order: Criminal Intent).

Women suffer the of loss of a pregnancy in a way that can never ‘be expected.’ More often than not, they are compelled to ‘move on.’ Despite all the unspoken labor and subjection, there is no child. The Pregnancy ≠ Childbearing Project is an effort to make suspicious and subvert the markers of pregnant embodiment in an effort to speak for what has remained ‘unspoken’ in the brute force of pregnancy loss.

Ye Yo is, low-budget aside, a relatively slick (in terms of film technique) action drama with a few bits of socio-political commentary. It's almost a Nuyorican version of a blaxploitation movie--the protagonist spends the whole film being chased by, and shooting it out with, the police--except it's resolutely even-handed rather than slanted against the establishment. Director: Toney Betancourt 79 min.

Antigone in Ferguson was conceived in the wake of Michael Brown’s death in 2014, through a collaboration between Theater of War Productions and community members from Ferguson, Missouri. Translated and directed by Bryan Doerries and composed by Phil Woodmore, the project fuses a dramatic reading by leading actors of excerpts from Sophocles’s Greek tragedy with live choral music performed by a choir of activists, police officers, youth, and concerned citizens from Ferguson and New York City. The performance is the catalyst for panel and audience-driven discussions on race and social justice, the core component of the event. This multifaceted production will offer a glimpse not only into the effects of the tragedy in Brown’s local community, but also the trauma of police violence and racial injustice in communities of color in New York and across the nation. Local stakeholders and community leaders will participate as panelists, assisting in opening up dialogues with audiences. These guided discussions, which aim to promote healing and bridge the growing divide between law enforcement and local communities, will focus on the impact of racialized violence against communities of color, and the legacies of the tragic deaths of Michael Brown, as well as Eric Garner, Amadou Diallo, Sean Bell, Saheed Vassell, and numerous other victims. The presentation will feature a rotating roster of acclaimed actors, including Samira Wiley (The Handmaid’s Tale), who will reprise the role she portrayed in the premiere of Antigone in Ferguson presented on the stage of Michael Brown’s high school in Ferguson in 2016. Other cast members include: Paul Giamatti (Billions), Tamara Tunie (Law & Order: SVU), David Strathairn (Good Night, and Good Luck), Adepero Oduye (12 Years a Slave), Frankie Faison (The Wire) and Kathryn Erbe (Law & Order: Criminal Intent). Each week will feature a different group of actors. Tuesdays through Saturdays, September 13-October 13, 2018.

Play |


The play deconstructs military ethos and pride to make the audience aware of their toxic dimensions and oppressiveness. The play draws on the author’s personal experience of having to appear before an army conscription committee. This memory serves as the vehicle for a funny, witty, and spot-on critique of nationalistic war discourses, which resonates with particular force in modern-day Poland. Conceived and directed by Cezary Tomaszewski. Script by Justyna Wąsik. Music by Claude Debussy, Georg Friedrich Handel, Stanislaw Moniuszko, Dimitr Szostakowicz. In the original languages with English supertitles, followed by talk-backs with the artists
