Coming Soon: CREATURE

New Georges teams with Page 73 Productions to present


a new play by Heidi Schreck
directed by Leigh Silverman

After being pestered by devils for more than half a year, Margery Kempe* – new mother, mayor’s daughter, and proprietress of a highly profitable beer business – is liberated from her torment by a vision of Jesus Christ in purple robes.

Visions are hard to come by, even in 1401. Should we trust the new Margery, with her fasting and her weeping and her chastity fixation, or burn her with the other heretics? Can a woman of insatiable appetites just up and audition for sainthood?

Playwright and OBIE-winning actor Heidi Schreck conjures a collision of contemporary and medieval imaginations: a very funny, a little bit scary new play about faith and its messengers.

with Marylouise Burke, Darren Goldstein, Sofia Jean Gomez,
Will Rogers, Tricia Rodley and Jeremy Shamos

Halloween Shows

Two shows Off-Off Broadway are are perfect for Halloween:


A father locks his daughter away because he can’t bear to share her with her mother, or anyone else. A man holds a busload of passengers hostage with no demands, and one woman does the unthinkable to attempt escape. And a scorned husband offers his wife a ghastly maternity gift. These tales and others make up this year’s THE BLOOD BROTHERS PRESENT… series, Nosedive Productions’ annual October horror show.

*this show features nudity and graphic violence and is recommended for adults only.

Coming Soon: John Jesurun's LIZ ONE

Black-Eyed Susan plays Elizabeth I of England as revealed through her private diaries. She struggles with a revolving set of presences to disentangle, un-write and finally rewrite her own biography. These intensely reflected histories include her perceptions regarding her five estranged children, their fathers, her own father, her hidden relationship with Buddhism and finally her disastrous attempt to invade North Africa. She inter-reacts with the kaleidoscopic array of ideas and characters through Jesurun's multi-dimensional use of language and technology. Jesurun and Black-Eyed Susan are long time collaborators having first worked together in Jesurun's 1984 production of "Red House".
