IRONBOUND by Martyna Majok
October 26 - November 12, 2017
“[A] quietly gripping play…Ms. Majok’s perceptive drama, with its bone-dry humor and vivid characters, illustrates how vulnerable people like Darja are hostages to the vagaries of chance, unless they can manage to climb out of poverty.” – The New York Times (Critics’ Pick)
Award-winning playwright Martyna Majok’s Ironbound is a darkly funny, heartbreaking portrait of an independent Polish immigrant for whom love is a luxury–and a liability–as she searches for the American Dream. Her hopes for a brighter future, which propelled her from her native Poland, continue to escape her. Over the course of 20 years, three relationships, and three presidents, she negotiates for her future with men who can offer her love or security, but never both.
“Martyna Majok shines a light on the invisible in Ironbound” – American Theatre Magazine
Director: KDT Co-Artistic Director Tina Parker
THE ROYALE by Marco Ramirez
March 1 - March 18, 2018
"The play is a stylized, blazingly theatrical triumph that keeps audience members on the edge of their seats." - Miami Herald
A talented, charismatic African-American boxer dreams of being the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. But it’s 1905, so his chances are as good as knocked out before he ever steps foot into the ring. Winner of two Obie Awards, an Outer Critics Circle Award, and a Drama Desk Award, The Royale is inspired by the often overlooked story of Jack Johnson, a boxer who – at the height of the Jim Crow era – became the most famous and the most notorious black man on Earth.
“Bam! The Royale is a real knockout, a relentlessly gripping boxing drama that...is as thrilling as anything you'll see in London at the moment, stage or ring.” - Time Out London
POMPEII by KDT Artistic Company Members Cameron Cobb, Michael Federico, and Max Hartman *World Premiere*
New Works Festival Mainstage Production
April 19 - May 6, 2018
A cautionary tale of a society’s last doomed day in skits, scoots, skedaddles, and songs, Pompeii!! is a twirling, toe-tapping, tip-top evening of vaudeville entertainment as volatile as a conspicuous volcano on the immediate horizon!
Through the structure and material of this uniquely American art form, Pompeii!! uses the flamboyance and joy of a vaudeville performance as a metaphor for the cycles of moral and social decline of both Ancient Rome and the roaring 20's -- all the while giving the hairy eyeball to modern-day society.
