How To Use A Knife

 by Will Snider

(Rehearsals Begin Dec. 29, 2018; Runs Jan. 19, 2018-Feb. 2, 2018)

 

In the chaos of a Wall Street restaurant kitchen, Chef George is trying to stay sober. In between yelling at a pair of trash-talking line cooks and a pot-smoking bus­boy, he befriends Steve, an East African immigrant. Set during busy dinner shifts and filled with unforgettable characters, How To Use A Knife bursts with grinding suspense, energy, and surprise.

CARLOS: (Male, 30-35) Latino, speaks fairly good English with an accent and must speak Spanish as well; cook at the restaurant; intelligent and circumspect, keeps the more volatile Miguel under control; very much in control of his job and himself, walks a fine line between impudence and respect concerning his employers; a good manipulator; keeps his place but is very good at veiled sarcasm; he’s playing the long game.

MIGUEL: (Male, 25-35) Latino; speaks only Spanish for much of the play; the other cook; fast-talking and sarcastic, even insulting, though his barbs are all in Spanish so he is saying pretty much whatever he wants; sharp sense of humor and appreciates his own cleverness; the holy fool of the kitchen; others think he’s crazy; he’s not.

 

Native Gardens

 by Karen Zacarias

(Rehearsals Begin Jan. 5, 2018; Runs Jan. 24, 2018 – Mar. 25, 2018)

 

Stately Gardens and cultures clash turning friendly neighbors into feuding adversaries. Pablo, a high powered lawyer, and doctoral candidate Tania, his very pregnant wife, are realizing the American dream when they purchase the house next door to community stalwarts, Virginia and Frank. But a disagreement over a longstanding fence soon spirals into an all-out comic battle of taste, privilege, and entitlement. In this battle of the backyard, no one comes out smelling like a rose.

 

TANIA DEL VALLE: (Female, Late 20s) Latina , a pregnant doctoral candidate who is determined to fix up her fixer-upper with a native garden. Bright, energetic, naturally optimistic, wants to co-exist with the neighbors but she is fiercely protective of her ideas and values.

PABLO DEL VALLE: (Male, Early 30s) Latino , an ambitious and successful attorney trying to make partner by “fitting in” and hosting a BBQ for the entire firm in his unkempt backyard. Smart, argumentative, generally tolerant and willing to overlook a lot until he is pushed over the edge by the Butleys.
