Uncle Bob

R&R Productions presents

by Austin Pendleton

Uncle Bob is a seldom-produced controversial love story between an HIV-positive recluse and his homophobic nephew, Josh, who is desperate for his uncle's validation.

CAST: Roger Banks & Shenendoah Thompson

Written by venerable playwright and performer Austin Pendleton, Uncle Bob stars Roger Banks and Shenendoah Thompson. Thompson also directs this intense, surprising, smart and profound American play with themes of sexual identity, love and redemption. 

 

Uncle Bob lives in New York as an uproariously articulate hermit, separated from the wife to whom he is devoted - and who is devoted to him. He is visited by his nephew, Josh, who is without a job, without a completed college education, and without any sense of a future, all of which he faces with a wit and nervy desperation that finds its only match in his Uncle Bob. Uncle Bob has AIDS, and Josh has hitched from the Midwest, uninvited (profoundly uninvited), to take care of him. A loving and funny, abrasive and profane face-off ensues.

The Summoning

Wild Ginger Project presents

by Charlotte Ahlin

Roommates and co-dependent best friends Morgan and Circe are longing to do something great with their lives. With nothing to lose, they devise a plan to summon a great ancient deity that will grant them extraordinary power. The spell only requires one thing: the blood of a virgin.
 

A slapstick comedy about female relationships, facing the future, and a brush with the other side - The Summoning is a spooky and surprising play that guarantees you'll have one hell of a night.

CAST:
Erica Knight*
Samantha Blain*
Mouna R'Miki

Sýrma, in greek, means 'string.' In Ancient Greece, the world was believed to be predetermined, which meant that free will did not exist. Three women, the Moire, are responsible for each individual's life, represented by a string. Sýrma is a short play set in this kind of universe, where everyone has the illusion of being a decision-maker, while in reality, they are unable to choose their destiny. Everyone, except for one young woman.

This riveting production is written and directed by Anthony M. Laura, owner of Face to Face Films, an independent film & theater production company. Mr. Laura has worked heavily in film & theater for several years.

Dixie Carroll, Alex Commito, Candy Dato, Margie Foley, Alexandra Rooney 
and Samantha Yestrebsky.

Light GreenMoss

by Molly Burdick

What do we choose to remember?

Do we cling to the good memories and bury the things that hurt us? 

Caroline and Ronnie were happy together until something tears them apart.  Eight months later, they both end up at their beach rental and are stuck there together for two weeks, but something is off.

This is a play about letting go and moving on.  It is about digging up the shards of a broken past to sever the ropes that bind us to the memories we’ve constructed for ourselves.

THE SPARK | THE WALL | THE ESCAPE

three solo theater pieces

Precariat Productions presents excerpts from:
"Inside A Pocket, Behind A Wall" – written & performed by Raphael Eilenberg – a gripping, heartwarming and imaginative new theater experience. It explores the danger of indifference, the resilience of the oppressed, and the strength of human faith. Told with fierce, lighthearted, and diverse characterizations using traditional Balinese Masks, Inside a Pocket, Behind a Wall is an immediate, demanding and imaginative new theater experience.


"Skin Deep, Skin Tight" – written by Kymbali Craig & performed by Samuel Encarnación – examines how racism, the demise of the Civil Rights Movement, the conditions of economic inequality and the destruction of Hip Hop affects poor urban communities- primarily Black American Males. It’s an epic, poetic depiction of how the painful reality of racism tightly confines some Black and Latinos into spaces that leave them with little or no room to breathe.

"Empanada for a Dream" – written & performed by Juan Francisco Villa – a poignant and entertaining portrait of family and neighborhood – set against the secret that destroys it all.  It’s a haunting tale about growing up by getting out. And coming back -- to one boy’s Lower East Side.

Welcome to Independence, Iowa - the lifelong home of Evelyn Briggs, and generations' worth of familial misconnections. Evelyn's oldest daughter, Kess, a university professor, has long since decided to cut her family ties, but has come home at the sudden request of her sister; Jo, an incurable romantic, is unexpectedly pregnant and has become increasingly worried about Evelyn's mental health; while Sherry, salty-tongued and proudly amoral, wants only to finish high school so she can leave home for good. The sisters struggle to meet the expectations of their demanding mother, while the fight to pursue their individual aspirations for life and love test the bounds of family loyalty.

INDEPENDENCE is an Equity Approved Showcase.
