THE WEIR

by Conor McPherson

THE FLICK

In a rundown movie theatre in central Massachusetts, three underpaid employees sweep up popcorn in the empty aisles and tend to one of the last 35mm projectors in the state.

A WALK IN THE WOODS

FEFU AND HER FRIENDS

by Maria Irene Forn├ęs
Directed by Juliana Kleist-Mendez

One of the seminal plays of the 20th Century… an experimental work that explores feminism and sexuality, employing a unique theatrical device. The audience gathers as usual to watch a play with drawing room aesthetics about eight women planning a fundraiser. Then the audience is separated into four groups to watch four separate scenes take place: a kitchen, a garden, a bedroom, a study. Each of these private scenes reveals the more complex longings and fears of the characters, often in dream imagery that create a sense of uncomfortable intimacy. The audience then regathers in the drawing room for a dry-run of the fundraiser in which things hidden get unearthed.
