|What's on at the wild project
Now – March 9
SPACEMAN written by Leegrid Stevens directed by Jacob Titus
With Erin Treadway
Produced by Loading Dock Theatre in association with The Wild Project
Schedule: Wednesday – Friday at 7:30 PM; Saturday at 3:00 PM & 7:30 PM; Sunday at 4 PM
Tickets: $30; $20 for students/seniors
After an unfortunate accident during the opening night of Spaceman (2018) involving a speaker, a curtain call and 4 broken bones, Loading Dock is REALLY excited to announce that Spaceman is happening again.
Spaceman follows astronaut Molly Jennis on her attempt to be the first human to reach Mars. Beginning seven months into an eight-month journey to the red planet, she is the lone crew member of the space module Aeneas. With a mission to establish a new colony, the difficulties of interplanetary space travel are brought to life in exacting detail. Radiation exposure, long term weightlessness, low light, extensive communication delays and poor hygiene are just a few of the challenges Molly Jennis must face on her quest to be the first to Mars, but she soon finds nothing compares to the psychological effects of having so much time alone.
March 15 – March 17
POETIC LICENSE 2019: RESILIENCE
Produced by Poetic Theater Productions
Tickets: $18; $15 for students and military veterans
Poetic Theater Productions’ 8th Annual Poetic License festival features performances around the theme Resilience, which is the process of adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats or significant sources of stress, a coherent sense of self that one is able to maintain through these circumstances. How do we cope with this ever-present onslaught and bounce back to create art and the world in which we want to exist?
The festival will include our annual showcases Generation Now!, Poetic Lyricism, Veteran Voices, and Breaking Our Silence, as well as special programming.
March 22 – April 20
LIFE SUCKS. by Aaron Posner, directed by Jeff Wise
Produced by Wheelhouse Theater Company

Wheelhouse, the group behind 2018’s hit revival of Kurt Vonnegut’s HAPPY BIRTHDAY, WANDA JUNE, returns this spring with the New York Premiere of Aaron Posner’s hilarious new play, LIFE SUCKS. In this brash reworking of Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya, a group of old friends, ex-lovers, estranged in-laws, and lifelong enemies gather to grapple with life’s thorniest questions—and each other. What could possibly go wrong? Incurably lustful and lonely, hapless and hopeful, these seven souls collide and stumble their way towards a new understanding that LIFE SUCKS. Or does it?
All performances are at The Wild Project (195 E. 3rd Street, between Avenues A & B).
Tickets can be purchased online at www.thewildproject.org.
The Box Office opens one hour prior to curtain.
