The Off-Broadway troupe has announced the productions to be featured in the 2007-2008 season, which includes two mainstage productions, two lab productions as well as developmental workshops and reunion readings. One mainstage show (slated for spring 2008), exact dates and further details are yet to be announced.
The 2007-2008 season (subject to change) follows:
The Off-Broadway premiere of the new play from the author of Durango. Kate Whoriskey (Fabulation) directs the work in which "Mrs. K. lives in a twilight world where she serves cookies and enjoys sweet memories of students past," as show notes reveal. "But a tugging darkness permeates just beyond her memory and the ghosts who haunt this lonely woman stand on the brink of making their way to light."
The Slug Bearers of Kayrol Island (or the Friends of Dr. Rushower) by Ben Katchor and Mark Mulcahy (January 2008)
Bob McGrath (Jennie Richee) directs the new musical featuring a libretto and drawings by Katchor and songs by composer Mulcahy. "The drawings of Ben Katchor — the acclaimed cartoonist and writer ('The Jew of New York,' 'Julius Knipl, Real Estate Photographer') — form the animated background for this darkly funny new musical, set in and around Manhattan and a tropical factory-island of exploited workers."
