• PITY IN HISTORY

    By Howard Barker
    Directed by Richard Romagnoli

    Religion, art, class and patriotism clash in Pity In History, a riveting drama by iconoclast writer Howard Barker (No End of Blame, Scenes from an Execution). First produced as a teleplay by the BBC in 1985, Pity In History updates Britain’s 17th century Civil War to present day in a sexy, brazen and remarkably funny examination of a society rife with competing ideologies.

  • “…a Barker play bursts with the giddy vigor of ideas in conflict and words gone wild. Imagine a melding of Bertolt Brecht’s political theater of alienation, Tom Stoppard’s verbal pyrotechnics, the end-of-days debates of Shaw’s 'Heartbreak House' and Monty Python’s rampant silliness.”
    The New York Times’ review of the PTP/NYC production of The Castle

    “…an ensemble work for many…complex, multi-faceted.”
    The Review

  • ARCADIA

    By Tom Stoppard
    Directed by Cheryl Faraone

    Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia has been called one of the most “powerful and relevant stories of our age” (The Guardian). The play's many elements include Byron versus science, the Enlightenment versus the Romantics, pure reason versus sheer randomness — and, says one character, “It's all because of sex, the attraction that Newton left out.”

    The New York Times

    “…exploring what it is that makes us human and our determination to keep dancing even as the darkness gathers and the universe grows cold.”
    The Guardian
