The World Premiere of
SIMON AND HIS SHOES
For family audiences
By Steph Singer and Laurel Haines
Directed by Meghan Finn
October 1 – 30, 2022

What do you do when your shoes walk out on you? Simon and His Shoes is an original shoes-ical about a pair of shoes, Bud & Beedle, who walk out on their owner, Simon, because he doesn't wear them, and he never even leaves the house. Simon chases after his shoes with the help of his younger sister Izzy. Follow these characters on an adventure of a lifetime taking them from their ordinary lives into a world of larger-than-life characters and increasingly bizarre and surreal situations. Simon could never have guessed, but his runaway shoes might be the best thing that ever happened to him.

The show features original puppets by The Ladies of Mischief, who toured nationally and internationally with Pedro Reyes' Manufacturing Mischief (2018). Puppeteers include Sammy Pignalosa, Layla Khoshnoudi, Sarah Ziegler, Mery Cheung, Julia Darden and Christina Stone. Also featuring vocal performances by Steph Singer, Christian McQueen, and Nadine Wild-Palmer.

Set Design by Christopher and Justin Swader, Lighting Design by Yang Yu, Video Design by David Pym, costumes by Patricia Marjorie.


VATICAN FALLS
By Frank J. Avella
Directed by Avella and Carlotta Brentan
Co-produced with High Voltage
October 27 – November 20, 2022

Based on factual accounts and events, Vatican Falls follows the life of one survivor who struggles with understanding how those closest to him could damage him the deepest. The multi-genre, non-linear play probes the conflicting feelings involved in most sexual abuse situations and dares to confront the truth about the ever-growing scandal and the Church's complicity in it. The piece also takes a dramatic fictional twist.

Vatican Falls will include costume design by Shirlee Idzakovich, movement choreography by Christine "Cappy" Dow., publicity is by Daniel DeMello / DDPR, casting by Judy Bowman, and social media managed by John David West. The rest of the Vatican Falls creative and tech team will be announced in September.

All attendees and artists of an in-person performance at The Tank NYC will be required to display proof of full covid vaccination before being admitted to the space, either by showing a vaccination record (vaccination card) at least two weeks out from the final dose of an approved vaccine, or by using New York's free Excelsior Pass service, available here.

Patrons will also be required to wear medical grade masks while indoors at all times.
