Araberlin shows just how far the current issue of terrorism is pushing apart the two worlds, which are finding it increasingly difficult to understand one another.”

Behind the Mask is the US Premiere of an original play written by Fang BaiMing and Huang WeiRuo (China). Directed by Chongren Fan. Produced by the Yangtze Repertory Theatre of America.The play is a metatheater drama, set in a theater space somewhere in China, where a troupe is rehearsing for a story about a Chinese mythical hero, Mei Jian Chi. As the myth is popularly known within Chinese culture, it depicts a tyrant, the King of Chu, who orders the death of his two master swordsmiths as part of a ritualized process to forge the world's sharpest blades, using human blood. Their son, Mei, seeking revenge, devises a death ploy with an errant by offering his own living but decapitated head to the King. Fragments of the mythical story switch in and out from snippets of mundane and personal follies of the struggling troupe during rehearsal.The play is a dark comedy. Involving a total of 9 leading and supporting actors. This production will be a new adaptation of the original script. The contemporary part of the play(the troupes story) is devised and created by Chongren Fan and ensemble. The characters are aware of their own theatricality. The play examines the current theatre world through a comic lens. The music in the play is new and modern with a strong innovative approach to ancient Chinese music characteristics composed by Xiren Wang.???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????,?????????????????,????????????????????,?????????????????????????,???????????????????????????,??????????,???????????,?????????,??????????????????????????????,???????????????????????????????,???????????????????????(???),??(???,???,???,??? )???(??)? ???????(Francisco Huergo ,Chris Smith,Neil Redfield )????????????????????,???????,????Andrew Diaz?(?????,????,???????,?????????,???????????????????,?????,????,?????)??????????????????????????,??????????????,????????????????????????????????????????????????,???????????????????,????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? ??????,????http://yangtze-rep-theatre.org/Image Photo by Rosalie Baijer.

 BOY GETS GIRL

Venue: ( Clarion Theatre)
Clarion Theatre
Producer: ( The Seeing Place Theater)
The Seeing Place Theater
City: New York

Additional Notes:
Variety says: Rebecca Gilman offers up a tale of Gotham singledom you won't be seeing any time soon on 'Sex and the City.' A disturbing chiller about a woman whose life of accomplishment is quickly destroyed by a disturbed admirer, the play works powerfully at its most basic level…

Theresa Bedell is a successful reporter in New York who loves her work and the life she has made for herself. A relationship with a man would complete the picture and so she agrees to go on a blind date with a friend of a friend. Tony is attractive and funny, but Theresa isn't sure, and after a second date she's convinced they have nothing in common and sees no point in continuing the relationship. Tony, though, thinks otherwise. What at first seems like persistence on his part grows into obsession, and Theresa's annoyance with Tony turns to terror as he begins to threaten her and those around her. Ultimately, Theresa must fight to save herself from being erased by Tony's actions which call into question the assumptions at the very heart of romantic pursuit.

This play is being presented in rotating repertory with BOYS' LIFE. By offering these two plays together we're engaging our audience in a deep and multi-faceted conversation about gender relations in the United States, says TSP Artistic Director, Brandon Walker. These stories explore what happens when men and women buck the social trends - will society accept anything less than the stereotypes it propagates? Get your tickets to BOYS' LIFE here.

 BOYS' LIFE
 
What happens when boys and girls don't do as they're told?
 
Venue: ( Clarion Theatre)
Clarion Theatre
Producer: ( The Seeing Place Theater)
The Seeing Place Theater
City: New York

Additional Notes:
Told in a series of fast-paced, sharply etched scenes, the play traces the misadventures of three former college buddies now seeking to make their way in the big city—and with various women of their acquaintance. Moving along briskly, with its mood of satirical humor brilliantly sustained, the play dissects and anatomizes the male narcissism—and protracted adolescence—which characterizes its protagonists and, in the end, makes it hilariously clear that it is actually the women who possess the qualities of manhood and maturity which their deluded lovers so desperately lay claim to. …BOYS' LIFE is the most balanced and intelligent comment on the battle of the sexes I've seen in a long time… —The New Yorker.
