PERSONA NON GRATA
by Ceren Ercan and Gülce U?urlu
APRIL 25, 2015 @ 2pm
An exciting and timely play by two up and coming women playwrights from Turkey. This poetic and powerful play concerns an Egyptian pilot and a young Turkish woman, raised on Western values and her brother who has studied at New York University. The couple tries to find way to maintain their love through cross-cultural prejudice, changing political climates, and finding themselves in an identity crisis. The script-in-hand production will be directed by noted New York-Turkish director Handan Ozbilgin.
BY JOSEPH VITALE
Directed by Bob Angelini
Starring Joseph J. Menino
The American premiere of a new play by Joseph Vitale which covers Edward R. Murrow’s rise from thevery beginnings of Columbia Broadcasting Systems to onsite reports during the 1940’s bombing of London, the liberation of Buchenwald, and finally to the on-air collapse of Senator Joe McCarthy’s “Red Scare” campaign to expose communists in the US Federal Government and elsewhere. More than just a biographical look at an icon and pioneer of American broadcast journalism, Murrow is a stinging indictment of the contemporary corporate-media complex.

THE LAST POET ON MARS
BY JACK FELLOWS
SATURDAY, MAY 9, 2015 @ 2PM
Join us May 9th at 2:00 pm at The Wild Project for a staged reading of “The Last Poet on Mars,” a new play by Jack Fellows based on Homer’s Illiad.2555 AD. An overpopulated Earth and a newly colonized Mars set the stage for us to witness again the futility and inevitability of war. Though technologies have grown, the human experience remains the same. The same lust for power, love, and violence plagues our characters in space as did the Greeks in the Aegean Sea. Tempted by the illusion of immortality they dive headfirst into their fate.
