Seminar

 “From Pulitzer Prize nominee Theresa Rebeck, SEMINAR follows four aspiring young novelists as they sign up for private writing classes with Leonard, an international literary figure. Under his recklessly brilliant and unorthodox instruction, some thrive and others flounder, alliances are made and broken, sex is used as a weapon, and hearts are unmoored. The wordplay is not the only thing that turns vicious as innocence collides with experience in this biting Broadway comedy.”

Directed by: Melanie Weisner 

Produced by: Grafton Doyle 

Stage Management by: Kajal Ardestani 

FEATURING :

Tommy Gallop, Helena Joe Habes, Spencer Weitzel, Doug Roland, Tracy Lee

It's 1985 and it's a hot summer night in LA.  Step on in to Julie and Alice's Hollywood apartment loft as you become immersed in the story of their lives!  Witness their hilarious drama as they deal with the total jerks of their time.  Julie's boss made a pass at her that she rejected, so now she is without a job, broke, disillusioned, and drinking. Her roommate, Alice, is at an equally low point coping with romantic troubles.

Pterodactyls by Nicky Silver

Pterodactyls by Nicky Silver

Nicky Silver’s “Pterodactyls” Is an Offbeat Comedy About the Family Who Put the D in Dysfunctional!

An absurdist black comedy about the demise of the Duncan family, and, by extension, the species. Emma Duncan, a hypochondriac with memory problems, and her orphaned fiancé, Tommy, confront her mother, Grace, with the news of their intended marriage. Disapproving at first, Grace acquiesces and puts Tommy to work as a maid. Shortly after, Grace's son, Todd, returns home and announces he has AIDS which sets off a frenzy of denial-spurred activity. Come laugh and cry with this disturbingly hilarious play about what it means to be family!

CRITICS SAY...

Dysfunction takes on new meaning with the Duncan Family. We laugh throughout, as we watch the family disintegrate, and finally realize the seeds of this dysfunction lie within us all. "…PTERODACTYLS struck me as the flip-side of The Skin of Our Teeth Thornton Wilder's antic celebration of mankind's ability to muddle through." —NY Times.

"There are times—not all that many, admittedly—when a critic wishes he had never used the word 'brilliant' before, so he could offer it fresh minded and glittering to something new. And different…" —NY Post.

"Clever is the word for PTERODACTYLS…clever, sharp, witty—it's a play that takes aim at the main-streamed, moneyed, conventional American family and buries it under one satiric jibe after another." —TheaterWeek.
