Black Glove
 
A black glove lost the day before Christmas Eve mystically passes through the hands of neighbors as it bestows a Christmas spirit.
 
Venue: ( Gene Frankel Theatre)

Producer: ( Strindberg Rep)
Strindberg Rep
City: New York

Additional Notes:
Even people familiar with August Strindberg may be surprised to learn that he wrote plays for children. The best example is The Black Glove, the fifth (and least performed) of his Chamber Plays. Its place in history has been obscured by a historical fluke: it premiered in 1911, after the close of Strindberg's Intimate Theater, which it was written for. This kept it out of many anthologies. To share it with New York audiences--and especially New York kids--August Strindberg Rep will present it November 30 to December 16 at Gene Frankel Theatre, 24 Bond Street, in the New York premiere of a verse translation by Anne-Charlotte Hanes Harvey. Director is Robert Greer, Artistic Director of the troupe. The piece is recommended for audiences age 8 and up and special family plans are being offered. In Strindberg's lyrical fantasy, a lost black glove found in the entryway to a large apartment building the day before Christmas Eve mystically passes through the hands of many of its residents as it bestows a Christmas spirit. The glove belongs to a young wife who has been mistreating her servants and who is known as too rich for her own good. She has wrongly accused her maid of stealing the ring, but in actuality it is lodged in the glove. Trouble is, there are only two characters who know this: a Tomte (a mythological elf from Nordic folklore typically associated with the winter solstice and Christmas season) and the Christmas Angel. The angel commands the Tomte to take away the young wife's baby daughter in order to teach the wife a lesson about what it feels like to lose something, promising to restore the baby as a Christmas gift. In the course of the play, the wife learns humility and discovers her lost father. The play will be acted by a cast of seven women, in the British Travesty tradition of the late 1800s (in which Sarah Bernhardt played Hamlet, etc.), in order to ensure that the play will be children-friendly. The set will be minimal because the primary

HISTRIONICS
 
A World Premiere PlayBy Michael Patrick Flanagan Smith & Ben ForstenzerStarring Brendan Hines
 
Venue: ( Theater For the New City)
Theater For the New City
Producer: ( Theater for the New City)
Theater for the New City
City: New York

Additional Notes:
Following his acclaimed 2011 show “Woody Guthrie Dreams”, Michael Patrick Flanagan Smith returns to Theater for the New City with the explosive World Premiere of Histrionics. Framed through the contemporary scope of a bookish high school history teacher, Smith and long time writing partner, Ben Forstenzer, get up close and personal with James Buchanan, largely considered to be the worst president in American history. Histrionics is a one-man show, starring Amazons The Tick star, Brendan Hines. This fall, he returns to the stage to play a high school history teacher who makes a series of terrible decisions involving students and firearms. Instead of taking proper action, he makes excuses and mounts a rousing defense of James Buchanan. In the mid 1850's, during Buchanans presidency, The United States of America was a mess of internal turmoil; lines were drawn, and the country was divided. Instead of taking action, Buchanan faltered, and the country erupted in civil war. In this one act play, we look at the past, consider it in relationship to the present, and examine the ways in which actions today can have great repercussions in the future.
