firehouse theatre new american plays

Firehouse Theatre is hosting the Festival of New American Plays tonight through Sunday nights. Two plays have been chosen for staged readings and the winner will be voted on by audience members who see both.

Tickets are $5 for one and $8 to see both. Descriptions and schedule:

    Nureyev’s Eyes
    by David Rush
    Directed by Kerrigan Sullivan
    During the l970’s the American painter Jamie Wyeth (son of Andrew) created a series of works about the dancer Rudolf Nureyev. Nureyev’s Eyes imagines what their encounters may have been like, how their relationship evolved, and how they changed each other. When Wyeth meets Nureyev at a party and decides to paint him, he first has to overcome the dancer’s reluctance, and then has to deal with Nureyev’s explosive personality.
    Featuring Matt Bloch and Dean Knight. Narrated by Sarah Legere.
    Thursday, June 28th at 7:30pm
    Saturday, June 30th at 7:30pm

    Memories of Lost Time
    by Jeffrey Wolf
    Directed by Deejay Gray
    Memories of Lost Time takes place during a man’s last night in prison after he is proven innocent and is going to be released. The play explores whether a person can ever come back from living in prison and what it means when a person thought guilty of murder is suddenly innocent.
    Featuring Axle Burtness, Augustin J. Correro, Marquis Hazelwood, Katrinah Lewis, and Iman Shabazz. Narrated by Sarah Legere.
    Friday, June 29th at 7:30pm
    Sunday, July 1st at 7:30pm

Catch Why Torture Is Wrong, and the People Who Love Them at the Firehouse Theatre Project and you can choose your price when you purchase tickets at the door. Offer valid for Sunday performances at 4pm on November 20 and 27 and December 4.

Christopher Durang turns political humor upside down with this raucous and provocative satire about America’s growing homeland “insecurity.” Why Torture is Wrong, and the People Who Love Them tells the story of a young woman suddenly in crisis: Is her new husband, whom she married when drunk, a terrorist? Or just crazy? Or both? Is her father’s hobby of butterfly collecting really a cover for his involvement in a shadow government? Why does her mother enjoy going to the theater so much? Does she seek mental escape, or is she insane? Homing in on our private terrors both at home and abroad, Durang oddly relieves our fears in this black comedy for an era of yellow, orange, and red alerts.
