…an evening of stories, satire & lots more…

Cynthia Adler and friends

“An evening with Cynthia Adler? I’d like to spend the whole night” — Robert Altman, director
Satirical, witty and surprising. Stories about women who have started out in one place, and ended up in another.

Disgraced

May 15th

From its stunning Broadway run “Smart…surprising…shocking” — New York Times
The successful New York lawyer Amir enjoys a comfortable life with his American wife, a talented artist influenced by Islamic imagery. But when his Muslim heritage is questioned, his life begins to unravel and a celebratory dinner with friends leads to surprising actions of prejudice, identity and faith.

Boycott Esther

By Emily Acker
Direction: Dennis Carlo Patella

May 22nd

Experience this up-to-the-minute new play. In an urgent response to the #metoo movement, Boycott Esther chronicles the aftermath of a young woman’s career after her boss, a Hollywood mogul, becomes enmeshed in a workplace sexual misconduct scandal. In a world where information is spread and opinions are formed in the click of a mouse, what is our collective capacity for forgiveness?

Play Reading Thursday May 11th at 7pm New World Home Cooking, Saugerties, NY

LUNGS by Duncan Macmillan. Direction: Christine Crawfis “Duncan Macmillan’s distinctive, off-kilter love story is brutally honest, funny, edgy and current. It gives voice to a generation for whom uncertainty is a way of life through two flawed, but deeply human people who you don’t always like but start to feel you might love.” —The Guardian, London

Presentation Today: Friday, March 24th – Saugerties High School

VT’s anti-bullying workshops focusing on original monologues of student definitions of “home”, “the other” and the “refugee”  are being presented today at 11:51am-12:34pm in the library of Saugerties High School, 132 Washington Avenue, Saugerties, NY.

 A monologue: 

The reason that I made the decision to leave my country and my dear family is because here in this country there are many opportunities to be a successful person. I came to this country to find a better life, everyone wants a better life, a calm life, without fear, without apprehension. In my country there are many young boys who are killed because they are in gangs. These are some of the reasons why Hispanic people immigrate to this country to get away from problems that might cause them to die. And those of us who are here do not want to do anything bad, we are here to look for a better life.
