In a London psychiatric hospital, an enigmatic patient claims to be the son of an African dictator--a story that becomes unnervingly plausible. BLUE/ORANGE is an incendiary tale of race, madness and a Darwinian power struggle at the heart of a dying National Health Service. The three character play will be performed by well-known actors, David Whalen and Sam Tsoutsouvas and newcomer, Rico Parker with Andrew S. Paul, directing and Mark Clayton Southers, producing.
A laugh riot for the politically incorrect!
Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Mamet takes no prisoners in this uproarious courtroom comedy that lampoons everyone from lawyers and judges, to Arabs, Jews, and conservative Christians, to gays and chiropractors and everything in between.
A secret romantic getaway has gone awry, and the Defendant (a Jewish chiropractor) has something to hide. His conservative Christian racist homophobic anti-semite Defense Attorney thinks he is lying. The Prosecutor, a homosexual, is having a domestic quarrel with his lover, who shows up in court wearing a leopard-print thong. The Judge suffers from hay fever and is addicted to prescription drugs. And all the while, a Middle East peace conference is taking place...
During the course of a midsummer night in the post-Civil War South, MISS JULIE, the young daughter of a plantation owner seeks to escape her cramped uptight life by trying to seduce one of her father's former slaves. What begins as a flirtatious grappling for power between the two quickly escalates into a sexual relationship which has dark consequences. This new adaptation mixes race into the dangerous cocktail of class and gender politics that Strindberg exploded onstage, restoring the sense of shock and outrage with which audiences greeted the play's original premiere.
