2019-2020 STUDENT MATINEES

FIRES IN THE MIRROR: CROWN HEIGHTS, BROOKLYN AND OTHER IDENTITIES
by Anna Deavere Smith
Studio Theatre

In 1991, in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn, a Hasidic man's car jumped a curb, killing a seven-year-old black child. Shortly after, a Hasidic rabbinical student was stabbed and killed in what appeared to be an act of retaliation, sparking riots that made national headlines and exposed a growing friction in racial and cultural relations. But behind the headlines, there are people- politicians, activists, religious leaders, victims, and perpetrators alike- who each have their own story to tell. Anna Deavere Smith's landmark work of documentary theatre, presented here with two actors playing 26 roles, is a theatrical event that cannot be missed- an illuminating exploration of identities in conflict.

NO WAKE
by Erica Berman
Studio Theatre

WORLD PREMIERE! With determination (and a bullhorn), elderly Peter Michaels is on a mission to save the loons of Lake Winnipesaukee, who are dying in record numbers. His summer expectations are thwarted by Sarah, a townie teenager hired to clean the house next door. While the two initially grate on each other, they slowly forge a unique intergenerational bond, opening up one tentative moment at a time and encouraging each other to truly acknowledge their loneliness and loss. This world premiere by Wisconsin writer Erica Berman is a humorous and poignant tale of two individuals learning to take back control of their lives.
