Producer: ( Theater for the New City)
Theater for the New City
City: New York

Additional Notes:
In this play Mary Speaks, the life of biblical figure Mary, the mother of Jesus, is used to explore parallels in the history of black mothers and their sons from slavery to present day. Writer and performer, Angela Polite finds in Mother Mary a prototype for the struggle of black mothers to raise and keep their sons alive in a society where his very existence is seen as a threat and can quickly lead to him becoming a crucified black body. Through monologues, song, spoken word and dance, we follow mother and son from the auction block, Jim Crow South, through the Great Migration, segregation to present day. Through this journey, Mary lives with the weight of being the mother of a black man-child and the gut-wrenching realization that she could lose him.Written and Performed by Angela Polite Christopher Burris – Director Barbara Matovu – Assistant Director Jeff Bolding – Musical Director Production Assistant – Ryan ChristianLightning Designer – Steven ThompsonStage Manager - Marie Cisco *An Equity Approved Showcase

Additional Notes:
NORTHBOUND tells the story of two young slaves in 1859 with a growing desire for life, love, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness... and the speeches that gave rise to the anti-slavery movements' most prominent abolitionists.Meet Frederick Douglass as he shares his life's experience as a slave. Hear LINCOLN deliver one of his most eloquent speeches...then...bare witness to John Brown's bold and controversial INSURRECTION at Harpers Ferry! At the heart of all this chaos is the Tully plantation... amidst the threat of the slave masters impure desires and demands... against the threat of the bondsmen's relentless pursuit... our young heroine and young hero discover they share a deep connection... hoping for a brighter future, while holding fast to the past...a moment in time...when they were kings and queens...rulers of the mighty Egyptian Empire!

Additional Notes:
Vít Horejš, founder of Czechoslovak-American Marionette Theater (www.czechmarionettes.org), attributes much of his theatrical orientation to the drama of fairy tales his Czech grandparents told him. Folksy and wise, Aesopian and Grimm-like, they provide a rich trove of source material for Puppet Theater. Horejš' approach, though, it not to simply enact the stories, but to mix-and-match them in new and sometimes intrepid combinations. His project for 2017 has been to adapt a selection of his grandmother's tales into material for his ensemble of antique Czech puppets, the core of which were found in a closet at the Jan Hus Church on East 74th Street in 1990. Theater for the New City will present the premiere of his Three Golden Hairs of Grandfather Wisdom, a compendium of Czech, Slovak and Italian fairy tales, February 16 to March 5. Each Saturday of the run, Vít Horejš will also perform The Winter Tales, a marionette play for young audiences based on three fables of wizards, blizzards and spirits. Three Golden Hairs of Grandfather Wisdom is drawn from Czech, Slovak, and Italian fairy tales that are cherished by children of the Czech Lands and Italy. Written and directed by Vít Horejš, it is performed by four performers, four dozen marionettes of various sizes and a mounted deer's head. The evening is named for its first story, a Czech tale, in which a charcoal burner's son, predestined by his fairy godmother to marry a princess, is sent by his angered father-in-law King on a quest for the sun's three golden hairs in hope that the young man will perish. Resolving three more difficult tasks along the way, he returns with rich rewards, inspiring the envious King to depart in search of Apples of Youth and Water of Life, a quest in which he finds his punishment. The second tale, Salt over Gold, is a Slovak story with echoes of King Lear. A Princess who values her father only as much as salt is banished, but returns to save her father when salt disappears, throwin
