We may not produce plays at The Lark, but that doesn't mean our community members aren't super busy in shows they've flown to all around the city. If you want to know where you can catch Larkees in current and upcoming productions, look no further! Check out this latest edition of THE NEST!


ALLIGATOR

New Georges
in collaboration with The Sol Project

Through December 18th

In this play by Playwrights' Week alumna Hilary Bettis, Emerald and Ty are twin orphaned teenagers who live in the backwoods of the Florida Everglades and wrestle ‘gators in a roadside attraction. Careening through encounters in their small tourist town, they meet self-destructive young locals looking for a future and desperate young wanderers looking for a home; all carry secrets under ever-present layers of desire.

In this current moment of political and environmental turmoil, AMERINDA (American Indian Artists) Inc. is reimagining the multi-generational story of Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale as Native artists.

POISON

Origin Theatre Company

Through December 11th

Poison by Lot Vekemans, was developed through The Lark's hotINK program in 2013, where it was translated from Dutch by Rina Vergano. In this play, words are used to conceal the truth and maintain boundaries as a couple meet again after a painful separation.  Try as they might to avoid speaking about what happened and what has happened since, their fragility and doubt seep in through the cracks and wounds are opened anew.

ORANGE JULIUS

Rattlestick Playwrights Theater
and Page 73

Performances begin January 10th

This play, written by Basil Kreimendahl, a Larkee playwright,  takes place in 1980s and 90s working-class America. Nut is growing up the youngest child of Julius, a Vietnam vet suffering the toxic effects of Agent Orange. As Julius’s health fades, Nut begins paging through forgotten photo albums and acting out old war movies about brothers-in-arms, leaping through time and memory to trace the complex intimacy between father and child when the child is transgender, fighting for a mutual recognition before it’s too late.
