Suicide Forest

presented by Ma-Yi Theater Company

Written by Haruna Lee
Directed by Aya Ogawa

February 25 - March 15, 2020

Returning by popular demand, following a sold-out run at The Bushwick Starr, Haruna Lee’s Suicide Forest is a bilingual nightmare play excavating the Japanese American consciousness and its intimate relationship with sex, suicide, and identity. In 1990’s Japan, a teenage girl grapples with her sexuality in a male-defined society as a salaryman desperately tries to escape his masochistic psyche. When their journeys collide, they expose their darkest desires fueled by shame with the notorious Suicide Forest looming over their imagination.

The Best of TheaterWorks!

presented by Working Theater

Directed by Nicole A. Watson

February 22 - 29, 2020

An off-Broadway production featuring the best short plays to come out of the last 19 years of Working Theater’s TheaterWorks! playwriting program, offered to working people across New York City.

Deemed some of their favorite works to come out of the TheaterWorks! playwriting and performance program, these plays will transport you from a doorman’s dystopian vision of the lobby of a NYC residential building, to the community room in an apartment complex as a young man struggles to come out to his mother before his 14th birthday, to a NYC hotel room where two old friends reconcile differences before attending a Star Trek convention.

The Artist Will Be With You In A Moment

presented by Parallel Exit

Written & Performed by Joel Jeske
Directed by Mark Lonergan

March 7 - March 29, 2020

Three-time Drama Desk nominee Parallel Exit returns to NYC with a brand new show.

Join us for an immersive audience experience featuring Joel Jeske in a solo comic performance as an artist, performer, and clown.

A creative force who "can get laughs simply by breathing" (The New York Times), Jeske invites audiences to participate in a multimedia performance and visual art installation with himself as the character, creator, and subject. The production offers Jeske's signature treatment of art, physical comedy, and audience interaction in a work that subversively asks us what we choose to value and why.
