The production, with performances running through Aug. 29, will feature the New York premiere of Animals and Plants, written and directed by Obie Award winner Adam Rapp, and the world premiere of Pink Knees on Pale Skin, written and directed by Derek Ahonen.
According to press notes, Animals and Plants concerns "the night of a terrible blizzard, two drug runners are snowbound in a cheap motel room at the foot of the Appalachian Mountains. As they wait for their connection, they are visited by a mysterious young woman who may or may not figure into their future. While the snow mounts and the night slips into darkness, the money disappears, a long-time friendship is tested, and all three of their lives will be changed forever." Pink Knees on Pale Skin focuses on "the Wyatt and Williams families [who] are meeting with Dr. Sarah, aka The Orgy Counselor. The plan: to participate in an organized orgy held in a discrete hotel room. But on this particular night, Dr. Sarah has designed a self-destructive twist, guaranteed to unleash chaos upon all involved. Pink Knees on Pale Skin is a comedy about orgies gone bad and a drama about marriage and regret."
