2018 LEO SHULL MUSICAL DIRECTING FELLOW


Featuring songs by Stephen Sondheim, the master of the modern musical, MARRY ME A LITTLE has been reimagined by director Kemar Jewel as the story of two queer men of color, searching for love in the city that never sleeps. Two strangers, alone in their apartments on a Saturday night, reveal their secret dreams and fantasies, never knowing that they’re just one wall away from each other. With trunk songs from Anyone Can Whistle, Follies, Company, and more, this new production gives voice to love rarely seen on stage.

THE CLITORISH / DRUNK ENOUGH TO SAY I LOVE YOU?

THE CLITORISH

by MARA NELSON-GREENBERG

Directed by JENNIFER CHANG

2018 DRAMA LEAGUE DIRECTING FELLOW


In this savvy new comedy by Mara Nelson-Greenberg, a husband and wife discover their teenage son has confused a diagram of a vagina for a map of the Middle East. What else is there to do? Hire a vagina tutor!  THE CLITORISH explores “truthiness,” the relationship between the sexes, the unwritten rules of the world...and who gets to write them.


DRUNK ENOUGH TO SAY I LOVE YOU? 

by CARYL CHURCHILL

Directed by TARA ELLIOTT

2018 DRAMA LEAGUE DIRECTING FELLOW


Jack would do anything for Sam. Sam would do...anything. And around this simple premise, the legendary Caryl Churchill -- called “the greatest living English playwright” by Tony Kushner -- slyly depicts a deeply dysfunctional relationship between two men...or, perhaps, the special relationship between a man and a much larger idea. Taut, elliptical, and unforgettable.

FIRST LOVE / DEATHWATCH

FIRST LOVE

by CHARLES L. MEE

Directed by SEONJAE KIM

2018 DRAMA LEAGUE DIRECTING FELLOW


Edith and Harold unexpectedly meet on a park bench...and romance, long-delayed, is in the air. But is it too late? In Charles L. Mee’s wistful, surprising and engaging play, a chance encounter is a catalyst for change; it’s both a last chance and a new beginning, navigating the emotions and pitfalls of new love...while embracing the potential of a very different future.


DEATHWATCH 

by JEAN GENET

Translated by BERNARD FRECHTMAN

Directed by DENNIS YUEH-YEH LI

2018 DRAMA LEAGUE DIRECTING FELLOW


In Jean Genet’s gripping, claustrophobic masterpiece -- which preceded his later works like THE MAIDS, THE BLACKS and THE BALCONY -- two prisoners and a condemned man vie for supremacy in a prison that, both literally and metaphorically, turns inward to upend our notions of class, crime, and desire.  Genet’s deft and thrilling exploration of identity and society may be set in the direst of circumstances, but its issues and struggles could very well be the people next door...or even ourselves

THIS IS NOT HAMLET

THIS IS NOT HAMLET

Created and Directed by BOYAN KRACHOLOV

2018 DRAMA LEAGUE STAGE DIRECTORS EXCHANGE FELLOW


Someone once said that an actor must eat all the food in the world, drink all the alcohol, and sleep with all of the women. But it wasn’t Shakespeare, and it certainly wasn’t Hamlet!  A mad roller coaster ride excavating some of the world’s most famous playwrights -- Shakespeare, Beckett, Moliere, Cervantes, Stoppard, De La Barca among them -- THIS IS NOT HAMLET explores the limits of ourselves and the stage, the thin line between reality and illusion.  The piece won European prizes when it debuted in 2016 at Sofia’s famed Theatre Sfumato.
