A Resume for Immortality
Written and performed by Gary Ketzenbarger. Directed by Brad Moore

Everyone has heard the expression, “A river runs through it.” In A Resume for Immortality it’s Tai-Chi that runs through it: Tai-Chi as an embodiment of Taoism in action, which is celebrated in this piece as a way of life. Of course, the actual life depicted is the author’s own, but that’s only to illustrate the redemptive value of Tai-Chi itself. Performed for the United Solo Festival, the world’s largest solo theatre festival, entering its seventh season in 2016.

Boeing-Boeing
By Marc Camoletti. Translated by Beverly Cross and Francis Evans. Directed by Brad Moore.

2008 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play. This 1960’s French farce adapted for the English-speaking stage features self-styled Parisian lothario Bernard, who has Italian, German, and American fiancées, each beautiful airline hostesses with frequent “layovers”. He keeps “one up, one down and one pending” until unexpected schedule changes bring all three to Paris and Bernard’s apartment at the same time. “Propelled by the same gusty spirit that animated Commedia dell’ Arte and the silent films of Keaton, Chaplin and Lloyd, {this} may be earthy, but it’s seldom earthbound.” – The New York Times

The Seafarer
By Conor McPherson. Directed by G. Thomas Cochran

The Seafarer is a chilling new play about the sea, Ireland, and the power of myth. It’s Christmas Eve, and Sharky has returned to Dublin to look after his irascible, aging brother who’s recently gone blind. Old drinking buddies Ivan and Nicky are holed up at the house too, hoping to play some cards. But with the arrival of a stranger from the distant past, the stakes are raised ever higher. Sharky may be playing for his very soul.

Sixteen Wounded
By Eliam Kraiem. Directed by Wendy S. Moore.

Sixteen Wounded is a play told with both humor and heart wrenching honesty, which revolves around the fateful colliding of two seemingly disparate lives – a lonely, emotionally remote Jewish baker, and a passionate, young Palestinian far from home. A friendship evolves as the two men struggle with their personal identities and their loyalties – to their past, their beliefs, and, finally, to each other. But can this relationship stave off the inevitable?

One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
By Dale Wasserman. From the Novel by Ken Kesey. Directed by Wendy Tennis.

2001 Tony Award for Outstanding Revival of a Play. 2001 Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Revival of a Play. A charming rogue contrives to serve a short sentence in an airy mental institution rather in a prison. This, he learns, was a mistake. He clashes with the head nurse, a fierce martinet.
