The Cradle Will Rock

by Marc Blitzstein

Iron Crow Theatre
September 29 – October 8

“How many frame ups? How many shake downs? Lockouts? Sellouts? How many times machine guns tell the same old story, brother does it take to make you wise?”

Marc Blitzstein’s unabashedly anti-capitalist 1937 musical, The Cradle Will Rock, was the first musical ever shut down by the Federal Government for fear of societal revolt! A defiant indictment of capitalism and socio-political corruption, The Cradle Will Rock is as much an attack on wealth and the political power it unjustly wields, as it is an homage to those with nothing, fighting to survive. Bold, biting, and unapologetically Brechtian, The Cradle Will Rock is one of the most historically significant pieces of American theater ever to be written. Join us, as Iron Crow Theatre presents an expressionistic and highly stylized, modern re-staging of Marc Blitzstein’s biggest and most remembered work.

Please note that The Cradle Will Rock explores mature themes, contains adult language, sexual content and violence, and may not be suitable for patrons under the age of 18.

MANIFESTO!

A Theatrical DaDA Diversion

Happenstance Theater
October 26 – November 12

The DC City Paper says “These merry pranksters get it!…glorious nuggets of nonsense…a delightful romp through the surreal…an extra-sensory extravaganza…it is belly-laugh humor”.

The Washington Post called it “…an ingeniously oddball deconstruction…brash…seductive…Futurism and dadaism pulsed with revolutionary zeal”.

MANIFESTO! is DADA! DaDA is haha! HAHA!

The setting is the surrealist Cabaret ReVoltaire owned by Madam Proprietor and operated by Middle-Man and the New Girl.

It is wartime. The guests are Visionaries. A Futurist and Dadaist walk into the bar. This is not a joke. Art becomes life.

Beware of Forgeries!

Text is from ACTUAL Manifestos. See the Capitalist and Communist tango and watch beauty rise from the absurd.

These are trying times, MANIFESTO excites everything!

Featuring Mark Jaster, Sabrina Mandell, Gwen Grastorf, Sarah Olmsted Thomas, Alex Vernon and Mark Winch.

The Goodies

Iron Crow Theatre
December 1 – 10


This season Iron Crow Theatre debuts it’s second original, devised work! The Goodies, featuring an all female cast of color, re-tells the story of the Salem Witch Trials, through the lens of modern day America. If, as the old adage states, history were to repeat itself, how would this mark in American history unfold again within the brave new world of the digital age? With fake news, nasty women, and the demonization of all “others”, this horror story of our own history may not be as impossible as we think.

Please note that The Goodies explores mature themes and may contain adult language, partial nudity, sexual content and simulated violence, and may not be suitable for patrons under the age of 18.

A Hunger Artist

Adapted from the story by Franz Kafka
By Sinking Ship Productions
December 14 – 17

“Are you still starving? When are you going to stop…?” 

What begins as a nostalgic celebration of a lost art form—and its most famous practitioner—becomes a darkly funny trip into the very question of what it means to suffer, and what it means when suffering becomes a public spectacle. In this inventive adaptation of Kafka’s tragicomic story, A Hunger Artist, actor, puppeteer and Sinking Ship co-artistic director Jonathan Levin gives a playful and startling performance as the only person who remembers an artist whose act was simply… to hunger.

“Directed by Joshua William Gelb from an elegant script by Josh Luxenberg, this visually arresting ‘Hunger Artist’ leads with enchantment… [Levin] holds the audience in the palm of his hand.” —Laura Collins-Hughes, The New York Times

★★★★ Critics Pick! “Surprisingly lovable… full of jokes and sudden sympathy… The artist starves, but we leave sated.” —Helen Shaw, Time Out New York

Spellbinding… On the stage, A Hunger Artist has an impact equal to its power on the page. It’s almost as if Kafka himself willed it into being.” —David Finkle, Huffington Post

Cloud 9

By Caryl Churchill
Iron Crow Theatre
January 26 – February 4

A comedy of manners that spans centuries, Cloud 9 is a smart, satirical look at gender politics and sexual oppression across the ages. Written in 1978, this modern classic offers witty social commentary, controversial casting requirements, and if that weren’t enough, time-travel! Taking us from the corsets of colonial Africa to the sexual liberation of 1970’s England, Churchill’s parody pokes fun at nearly every permutation of human sexuality, and reminds us why the playwright remains a feminist hero and icon today.

Please note that Cloud 9 explores mature themes, contains adult language, sexual content and violence, and may not be suitable for patrons under the age of 18.

Corpus Christi

By Terrence McNally
Iron Crow Theatre
April 6 – 15


“We are going to tell you an old and familiar story.”

Born in Corpus Christi, Texas in the 1950s, Joshua is a gay man who also happens to be the son of God. Terrence McNally’s contentious work is a modern queer retelling of the gospels depicting Jesus and the Apostles as gay men living in modern-day Texas. Known as the queer passion play, Corpus Christi follows Joshua from his birth in a seedy motel room to his senior prom, from gay disco to death by crucifixion. Often called blasphemous by religious protesters, this controversial play thoughtfully re-frames the identity of the Christ figure while unpacking his essential lessons of love and faith.

Of Special Note: Premiering in New York City in 1998, The New York Times published an article linking the uproar in response to the production to the death of gay University of Wyoming student Matthew Shepard. Matthew Shepard’s death inspired the creation of The Laramie Project to be produced by Iron Crow Theatre in June of 2018.

Please note that Corpus Christi explores mature themes, contains adult language, sexual content and violence, and may not be suitable for patrons under the age of 18.

SENSES

A broadly accessible dance performance

The Collective
April 19 – 22

The Collective has created a welcoming environment for experiencing dance as an every body experience through their newest creation and premier of SENSES. The work produced for SENSES provides multiple points of entry through a variety of sensory experiences paired with dance. Senses such as touch, taste, smell will be incorporated throughout the performance in an attempt to shift the perception of who dances and how dance is experienced.

NOTE: A sign language interpreter will translate both performances of SENSES.

In addition to SENSES, The Collective will host a series of Open Marleys, on Thursday, April 19 (Artist Edition) and Saturday, April 22 (Open Call.) Similar to an “open mic night”, the performance space will be open for choreographers to show work or work-in-progress with feedback from the audience facilitated and encouraged.

The Collective, Baltimore’s hub for professional dancers and choreographers, is a non-profit organization based in Baltimore City and home for seventeen dance artists who gather to create new work and promote dance as an art form. The Collective is in residence at the Bryn Mawr School where the company offers bi-weekly, open to the public dance classes for pre-professional students and adult movers. The Collective is currently co-directed by Alyson Jacques and Sonia Synkowski.

The Laramie Project

By Moisés Kaufman
Iron Crow Theatre
June 15 – 24


In October 1998, a twenty-one-year-old openly gay student at the University of Wyoming was kidnapped, beaten, tortured, and left to die – tied to a fence in the middle of a prairie outside Laramie, Wyoming simply for being gay. His name was Matthew Shepard. Shepard’s murder brought national and international attention to the lack of hate crime legislation across the nation and forced a small community to wrestle with it’s identity on both the local and national levels. In this groundbreaking docudrama, Moisés Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theater Project capture the human voice of Laramie.

With just 8 actors playing over 60 roles, The Laramie Project weaves together interviews, journal entries, and published news reports to create a breathtaking theatrical collage exploring the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are capable.

Please note that The Laramie Project explores mature themes, contains adult language, and the graphic re-telling of violence, and may not be suitable for patrons under the age of 16.
