New York City's Soho Repertory Theatre continues its series of winter workshops with the Jan. 12-15 run of Snatch by Peter Rose. Linsay Firman directs the British playwright's tale of two college students, their cruelty toward a fellow female student and her defense against them.
Soho Rep, which celebrates 25 years in existence this season, began a new regime under new artistic director Daniel Aukin last year. The shortened 1998-1999 season (which did not begin until January 1999), included a new work by Richard Maxwell, Cowboys & Indians, and the company's annual "Summer Camp" series of short plays.
The remaining productions of the series of workshops runs as follows (all performances are at 7:30 PM):
* Snatch (Jan. 12-15, 2000) by Peter Rose, directed by Linsay Firman.
* A new play by Richard Maxwell (Jan. 18-21, 2000), the author of House and Showy Lady Slipper and owner of a seemingly bottomless trunk of scripts, all of which boast his already familiar stripped-down, deadpan style. * 12 lb. Discourse (Dec. 2, 9, and 16 at 10:30 PM) by Matt Scheck and Pete Simpson, who also perform; the hijinks of "two clueless philosophers of life," Bill and Bill.
