Dealers of Souls
Theater is necessary to look inside ourselves. Theater gives us courage to face our fears and doubts; to make ourselves better people. This play is about the choices we make, who we are and what we do with our lives.

Additional Notes:
In Italy, theaters are under real estate pressure; their precious locations and spacious buildings are eagerly sought by developers who try to convert valued cultural assets into commercial buildings. This clash of artistic idealism and commercial opportunism has been dramatized by Italian playwright Alberto Bassetti in Dealers of Souls: This Theater Is (Not) For Sale, a new play whose American premiere will be presented November 12 to 29 by Theater for the New City in collaboration with Kairos Italy Theatre. It's a supernatural drama in which two men are negotiating the sale of an old theater. The buyer, a clearly corrupt theater entrepreneur, promises to restore it but actually, he intends to turn it into a supermarket. Can his intrigues be stymied by a strange actress who squats in the building, who seems to be part hobo and part phantom of the theater? Can she save the day? Bassetti's three-character drama, written in 2001, received a staged reading in 2013 at Casa Italiana as part of Kairos Italy Theatre's In Scena! Italian Theater Festival. Now newly translated by Carlotta Brentan, it will be directed as a full production at TNC by Laura Caparrotti, Artistic Director of Kairos Italy Theatre, who also plays the actress.Ms. Caparrotti writes that the play presents a situation that Theater for the New City narrowly avoided in real life. In January 2013 I was at the Theater for the New City when Crystal Field burned the mortgage declaring the Theater for the New City completely paid off and therefore safe. That meant safe from becoming a supermarket or a condos; safe to remain a theater… maybe even forever! In June 2013 we presented the first reading of the translation of 'Dealers of Souls' and I couldn't help to think that this play, so much about the necessity of theaters staying theaters, was somehow telling the story of TNC. Of course, it was also the story of many other theaters: some who survived and some which unfortunately we have lost.

Additional Notes:
In a run-down movie theater in central Massachusetts, three underpaid employees mop the floors and attend to one of the last 35-millimeter film projectors in the state. Their tiny battles and not-so-tiny heartbreaks play out in the empty aisles, becoming more gripping than the lackluster, second-run movies on screen. With keen insight and a finely-tuned comic eye, The Flick is a hilarious and heart-rending cry for authenticity in a fast-changing world.
“Wondrous, devastating, hilarious, and infinitely touching. ‘The Flick’ won my heart. A play to be treasured.” - Charles Isherwood, The New York Times “The tenderest drama --- funny, heartbreaking, sly, and unblinking --- now playing at a theater near you. ‘The Flick’ may be the best argument anyone has yet made for the continued necessity, and profound uniqueness, of theater.” - Jesse Green, New York Magazine “Grade: A. A moving and magnificent comedy. ‘The Flick’ is a masterpiece.” - Entertainment Weekly “‘The Flick’ is stunning. Incisive and inventive and unexpectedly moving.”
- Huffington Post “Extraordinary and hilarious. Bursting with compassion.”
- The Hollywood Reporter “Thrilling and sensational. Even if you’ve already experienced ‘The Flick’, see it again. And prepare to be even more blown away.”
- Theatremania “The best play of the year.”
- New York Magazine

Casmir, a screenwriter, has sold the exclusive rights of his screenplay to a sleazy Hollywood producer. He confesses what he has done to his cousin Salvatore, a hit man for the mob. The screenplay, a bio-pic, contains truths about Sal's father that are more then incriminating. Enraged, Salvatore vows to get the screenplay's rights back to Casmir even if it means eliminating the producer. The two cousins are forced to deal with issues that tore their family apart and drove them to be who they are: one an artist, the other a ruthless killer.
