Inspired by a true story and based on the nine circles of Hell in Dante's Inferno, the play centers on Daniel Reeves, who is arrested and prosecuted for acts that he may have committed while serving in the U.S. Army during the Iraq War. Thrown into a labyrinth of military bureaucracy, the confused and troubled teenager tries to navigate layers of commanding officers, public defenders, pastors, army psychiatrists, and, essentially, his own personal hell.
Henry Naylor returns to this year's Brits Off Broadway festival with a double bill of provocative theater. Angel is inspired by the story of a modern legend: a female sniper who struck fear into the hearts of jihadists and held ISIS in check for over a year in war-torn Syria. Echoes, back by popular demand after its too-short, sellout run last year, tells the parallel stories of two women born 175 years apart: a Victorian pioneer who wants to build an empire and a present-day Islamic schoolgirl who wants to build a caliphate. These two staggering stories continue to haunt audiences long after the curtain goes down.
Angels Among Us highlights the journey of 9 characters living through the worst days of their lives, but little do they know that everything happens for a reason... even if they don't quite see any hope just YET.
Presented in a series of 4 coherent and connected vignettes, our characters learn that sometimes they have to get through absolute devastation in order to experience the divinity and joy in their lives. As they learn to overcome their fears and let go of what they can't control, they might just be able to connect with a higher part of themselves and find understanding, peace, and happiness...
This play explores the complicated nature of the human experience and the struggles we all face through having to feel our pain, joy, growth, fear, and surrender, while having to evolve and face our mortality...
Benghazi – Bergen-Belsen is an original play based on the novel of the same name by Yossi Sucary. Tracing the story of the holocaust of the Jews of Libya, the play gives voice to a larger cultural narrative that is conspicuously absent from prevalent stories of the Jewish holocaust. By citing the marginalized racial politics of the holocaust, the show urges a reconsidering of both historical and contemporary religious, cultural, and racial oppression and violence. Underscoring the contemporary urgency of the story, the play features both historical and present-day images of New York, Europe, Syria, Africa, and the Middle East.
Black Angels Over Tuskegee is the story of the Tuskegee Airmen told in narrative of six men embarking upon a journey to become pilots in the United States Army Air Forces. The play explores their collective struggle with Jim Crow, their intelligence, patriotism, dreams of an inclusive fair society, and brotherhood. The play goes beyond the headlines of the popular stories of the Tuskegee Airmen and exposes the men who exhibited the courage to excel, in spite of all the overwhelming odds against them.
Winner 2009 Artistic Achievement Award "Best Play"
"Uplifting! Inspirational! This show is also tough to resist. By the end, when the pilots overcame their obstacles and finally got up into the air to the swelling of music, tears welled up in my eyes." - New York Times
Nineteen-year-old Robi is eager to escape the oppression of Communist Romania to forge a new life in the West. The unexpected return of his mother's estranged fiancé after a 20-year absence may hold a key to his freedom. However, when his mother reveals that Robi's father was not killed in action as he'd believed but is either a Jewish teacher his mother hid during the war or the Hungarian soldier who persecuted him, Robi must decide whether to embrace his ancestry or run from it.
Eugene O'Neill's groundbreaking play The Emperor Jones is the story of Brutus Jones, a despot who ascends to the throne through lies, intimidation, and the politics of fear. Following a prison break in the United States, Jones sets himself up as monarch of a Caribbean island. When the natives rebel after years of exploitation, Jones' mesmerizing journey into darkness becomes a terrifying psychological portrayal of power, fear, and madness. With his demons in hot pursuit, the emperor is forced to confront not just the mortal sins of his past but also ancestral depravities — all in search of forgiveness and salvation.
Remember when you felt you could do anything, when there was still nothing to fear? Yes, things have changed a bit, haven't they? And everyone keeps saying there's nothing to be afraid of!

God of Vengeance tells the wrenching story of a brothel owner's attempt to marry off his daughter. He wants her to lead a dignified, religious life, but the world of sin she grew up in draws her back. This groundbreaking drama featured the first lesbian kiss on Broadway when it premiered in 1923.

DeSotelle assembled a team of expert technicians to basically transport us back to the 16th Century.
Oscar Isaac returns to the Public Theater in this electrifyingly intimate new production of Shakespeare's enduring drama Hamlet. Isaac plays the prince caught between thought and action, not to mention anger and anguish, as his uncle assumes the throne left vacant by Hamlet's murdered father. As the dead king calls to him from the grave, demanding to be avenged, Hamlet is forced to choose between bearing the oppressor's wrong and taking arms against a sea of troubles. Tony Award winner Sam Gold directs theater's most powerful tragedy about life and death, madness and conscience, and corruption — of the state as well as of the soul.
Tensions rise when famed attorney William Kunstler arrives on a college campus to give a seminar and the brilliant young law student assigned to introduce him objects to his appearance. Has Kunstler finally met his match?
Kunstler was an American civil rights pioneer and attorney so famous that he played himself on Law & Order. His career defending "social outcasts" was as colorful as the man himself. Director of the ACLU from 1964-72, he gained prominence serving as defense attorney for the Freedom Riders and the Chicago Seven as well as for members of the Black Panther Party, the Attica Prison rioters, the American Indian Movement, and Weather Underground. As an attorney in private practice in New York City, he continued to court headlines with controversial clients, from Omar Abdel-Rahman (involved in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing) to notorious Mafia figures like John Gotti.
Jeff McCarthy (Southern Comfort at the Public Theater) stars as the title character in this fictionalized account. Joining him onstage is Steppenwolf Theatre Company regular Nambi E. Kelley as the whip-smart student who opposes Kunstler.
Life According to Saki is inspired by the life and short stories of Hector Hugh Munro, nicknamed "Saki." A fabulous British satirist who died in World War One, Saki shares his stories with his fellow soldiers on the eve of the Battle of the Somme. His tales are witty, absurd, and peculiarly optimistic. Adapted by award-winning author Katherine Rundell, his stories are brought to life by an ensemble cast and the occasional puppet.
The White Witch has trapped Narnia in a perpetual state of winter with no hope of Christmas. But all that changes when four siblings venture through an old wardrobe and enter this land of talking animals, charming fauns, giants, and dwarves. Standing shoulder to shoulder with Aslan the Great Lion, the children courageously battle the forces of evil and discover that love is the deepest magic of all.
My Eyes Went Dark is an electrifying new drama about a Russian architect driven to revenge after losing his family in a plane crash. Matthew Wilkinson (Red Sea Fish) returns to Brits Off Broadway with another searing new play inspired by real events. This production was nominated for three off-West End Theatre Awards and enjoyed an acclaimed run last year at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
In Picnic, when a gorgeous drifter arrives in a small Kansas town, no one is prepared. He brings with him the possibilities and promises — some true, some false — of a life with real options. His instant and incendiary chemistry with a local 18-year-old unexpectedly destroys the illusions of comfort harbored by everyone in this heartland's physically expansive and emotionally suffocating landscape. William Inge's legendary Pulitzer Prize-winning play is over 60 years old, but the American questions of sex as currency, of class as possibility, and youth as opportunity are timeless.
In Come Back, Little Sheba, a middle-aged Midwestern couple lives from one day to the next — Lola, breathless with fear of silence and solitude, and Doc, a recovering alcoholic. Into their tired lives comes Marie, their boarder, so flush with the riches of her youth that they can no longer deny how they spent their own. Their fragile acceptance of their own stifling reality is suddenly and brutally tested as Inge mercilessly exposes the pain and regret of the past that can be unmasked by the mere presence of youth and possibility of the future. Come Back, Little Sheba explores the endless and inevitable disappointments of the ever-seductive American dream.
