And So We Walked:
An Artist's Journey Along the Trail of Tears
Thursday, October 28 - Saturday, October 30
Written and Performed by DeLanna Studi
Co-Produced with Octopus Theatricals
Co-represented by Octopus Theatricals and Indigenous Performance Productions

DeLanna Studi, Cherokee performance artist and activist, shares a powerful, multi-faceted dramatic memoir in And So We Walked: An Artist's Journey Along the Trail of Tears. This frank, heartwarming and inspiring story recounts the experience of a contemporary Cherokee woman (Studi) who, with her father, embarks on an incredible 900-mile journey along the Trail of Tears to truly understand her own identity and the conflicts of her nation. The play recounts the six-week journey, which retraced the path her great-great grandparents took in the 1830s during the forced relocation of 17,000 Cherokee from their homelands. And So We Walked draws on extraordinary interviews, historical research, and the artist's personal experience to convey the complexities and conflicts with which the Cherokee wrestle. Studi received the 2016 Butcher Scholar Award from The Autry Museum of the American West in acknowledgement of her work on And So We Walked.

The creative team for And So We Walked includes John Coyne (scenic design), Andja Budinich (costume design), Norman Coates (projection and lighting design), and Bruno Louchouarn with John-John Grant & Sarah Elizabeth Burkey (sound design and original music).

New York Premiere
Approval Junkie
Tuesday, November 16 - Sunday, December 12
Written and Performed by Faith Salie
Directed by Amanda Watkins

Faith Salie's Approval Junkie, developed in collaboration with and directed by Amanda Watkins, will finally make its New York premiere after original rehearsals were postponed in March 2020.

From winning her high school beauty pageant, to picking the perfect outfit to wear to her divorce, Faith Salie is the ultimate approval seeker. A comedian and Emmy Award-winning journalist best known for her roles on NPR's Wait Wait…Don't Tell Me! and CBS News Sunday Morning, Salie has adapted her story into the heartfelt (and disturbingly hilarious) one-woman show, Approval Junkie. Through her witty, candid, and sometimes heartbreaking recollections, Salie reflects on a lifetime of looking for validation in all the wrong places - and reveals how she finally won gold stars from her toughest critic…herself. The World Premiere of Approval Junkie was originally produced by The Alliance Theatre in Atlanta, GA.

Approval Junkie's creative team includes Jack Magaw (scenic design), Ivan Ingermann (costume design), Amanda Zieve (lighting design), Brandon Bush (sound design), and Alex Basco Koch (projection design). Justin Scribner is the Production Stage Manager. Technical Supervision is by Hudson Theatrical Associates and General Management is by Baseline Theatrical (Andy Jones & Jonathan Whitton).

DEEP FAKE
Available Now
Written by Sharyn Rothstein
Directed by Rachel Chavkin
Sound design by Justin Ellington
Featuring Sanjit De Silva, Blake DeLong, Sakina Jaffrey, Rebecca Naomi Jones, Hannah Kallenbach, Ian Lassiter, and Nidra Sous la Terre

Shape the future. Lose your soul. And just keep smiling. The My Fair Lady story gets a thoroughly modern, thoroughly invigorating update in this unsparing (and hilarious) look at America's capitalist tech culture. Eli is a tough young woman who makes paper flowers on Venice Beach, where she lives in a homeless tent camp. A chance encounter with a smug tech CEO, Hig, sparks an intriguing quid pro quo: she brings him an image-burnishing entrepreneurial offer, and he, in turn, hires her to present GAL-his new artificial intelligence service-at an upcoming conference. The clash of cultures results in a surprisingly insightful exploration of the shady side of AI, sexism in the tech world, economic disparity, and the human cost of relentless progress.

The New York Times' Critics Pick whose world premiere engagement at the Public Theater in March 2020 was cut short by the pandemic

It's Christmas Eve and Lara anxiously anticipates the arrival of her sister, Cleo, so she can reveal a shocking family secret that has been haunting Lara since their mother's death. By confronting revelations about their grandfather's shameful past, Lara is hopeful that she and Cleo can make reparations and exorcise this ghost from their lives.

Magda, an upper-class white woman, is shocked to the core by what she sees-and questions her complicity. Ruth, a Black woman who played a role in the show, is thrilled to be part of it-until she discovers her performance is all too convincing. A visceral and truly immersive audio experience that tackles issues of race, privilege, and cultural blindness.
