Multi-Day
(All day)

directed by Rachel Chavkin

The final installment in a three-play cycle exploring the U.S./México drug wars. While the first play was inspired by the "Bravest Woman in México," the second looked into the ridiculous machismo of narco culture as portrayed by women. This third play examines the United States' involvement in the drug wars; from the selling of arms, to the buying of product, to the laundering of cartel money, to the dark, enigmatic cloud of information that is painted over by the American nationalism machine.

This working session is closed to the public.

The Heir Apparent by Harding Lemay

7:00pm

directed by Tom Ferriter

Set in Manhattan in 1967, The Heir Apparent is a drama about identity illustrating Freud's Theory of the "divided self." A family of art dealers is driven by ambiguous desires to be other than what they are, longing for a difficult balance in relationships plagued by guilt, outrageous behavior, and deep-rooted resentment. Distrust, disapproval, and unreasonable demands are made upon each other.
