Everyman is successful, popular, and riding high when Death comes calling. Forced to abandon the life he has built, he embarks on a last, frantic search to recruit a friend, anyone, to speak in his defense. But Death is close behind, and time is running out.
One of the great primal, spiritual myths, Everyman asks whether it is only in death that we can understand our lives. A cornerstone of English drama since the 15th century, this new adaptation by poet laureate Carol Ann Duffy was presented at the National Theatre, London, in April 2015.
A Play Adapted by Terry Johnson Based on the Novel by Charles Webb and the Motion Picture Screenplay by Calder Willingham and Buck Henry.
Kamala is an original Indian play in English based on the real-life experience of a journalist who in the early 1980s exposed a social malaise that continues to pervade contemporary India. The putrescent issues the play brings to the fore are slave trade and male chauvinism, the two most insidious problems that malign the lives of millions of women in India.
What happened to Mr. Joy? A Harlem community is shaken when Mr. Joy, a Chinese immigrant whose shoe repair shop has been a neighborhood pillar for decades, becomes the victim of an attack. Through the lens of Mr. Joy's customers, from the bubbly 11-year-old Clarissa (who captured viewers' hearts in Emergency) to the sincere and savvy "gangsta granny" Bessie, audience members learn the profound yet unassuming impact the shop owner has had on others' lives. Mr. Joy: Neighborhood Tour is the work of playwright and ArtsEmerson Artist-in-Residence Daniel Beaty (Emergency).
Log in. Choose an identity. Live out your private dreams. This is life in the Nether — a lush, virtual wonderland offering total sensory immersion free of judgment and, seemingly, consequence. But when a real-world cop discovers a disturbing form of entertainment in "The Hideaway" realm, she triggers a virtual investigation with gasp-worthy revelations and an unimagined result. Part fairy tale, part sci-fi thriller, The Nether is a taut, haunting, and highly original play for our times.
The time was 1866, less than a year after President Lincoln was assassinated by John Wilkes Booth. His brother Edwin Booth, one of the greatest Shakespearean actors of the 19th century, decided to perform Hamlet on Broadway, a role he had performed in the past to great acclaim. A huge crowd turned up for the performance — but it wasn't clear whether they were there to see the actor perform or to exact their revenge.
Jacob Fishel, an actor with a wide-ranging career on television as well as on and off-Broadway, takes on the role of Booth.

Inspired by the real-life woman whose work allowed astronomers to measure the distance of faraway galaxies, Lauren Gunderson's melodious, evocative Silent Sky challenges how we explore our universe by revealing the music of the stars.
