Cast announced for CREAM! reading

Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

 

The cast has officially been announced for Page 73’s readings of CREAM! by John J. Caswell, Jr., the 2017 P73 Playwriting Fellow. The weeklong new play lab culminates in two readings at Theater for the New City, both of which are free and open to the public. The readings will take place on Thursday, October 19 at 7pm and Friday, October 20 at 4pm.

CREAM! follows Lotta and Laszlo, the owners of a bakery who refuse to cater gay weddings, as they attempt to rehabilitate their reputation — and save their business — on an over-the-top reality show called “Cream!” A talking Cake, tap dancers, and Jesus Himself weigh in as Lotta and Laszlo set themselves on a perilous path to redemption charted by “Cream!”‘s Puckish host, Michael Samantha.

CREAM! will be directed by Dustin Wills (Orange Julius). The cast will include Constance Shulman (“Orange is the New Black”), Molly Bernard (“Younger”), David Ryan Smith (One Man, Two Guvnors), Jose Joaquin Perez (In A Word), Christopher Guy Bannow (The Hairy Ape), Mitchell Winter (“I, Robot”) and Alesandra Nahodil (The Mysteries).

Admission to both readings is free and open to the public. Tickets must be reserved in advance here. Requests to be placed on the waitlist if readings sell out can be sent to caitlin@page73.org.

Fall 2017 Season Announcement

Friday, September 29th, 2017

 

Susan StantonToday Is My Birthday, by Susan Soon He Stanton

We are so excited to announce that our Fall 2017 production will be the world premiere of Susan Soon He Stanton’s new play, Today Is My Birthday, directed by Kip Fagan. Performances begin on Tuesday, November 28 at the New Ohio Theatre for a limited run through December 23, 2017. Opening Night is December 7, 2017.

Today Is My Birthday follows Emily, a would-be writer, who retreats home to O’ahu after Manhattan finally gets the best of her. Trading one island for another doesn’t help, though, and when she stumbles into a gig as an actor on a shock-jock radio dating show, she finds herself strangely determined to turn fantasy into reality. Told through a playful mixture of phone calls, voicemails, and live radio spots, Today Is My Birthday is a comedy about loneliness in the age of connection.

Our premiere is the culmination of a years-long collaboration between Susan and Kip, who began developing the play together at the Sundance Institute Theater Lab in 2015. Sound designer Palmer Hefferan (Orange Julius) has also been with the team since that time designing the complicated sound for a play told entirely through technological devices – whether that’s characters speaking on the phone, checking their
voicemails, talking through an apartment buzzer, or playing a role on a radio show.

Today Is My Birthday was on the 2015 Kilroys List, and earned Susan one of three inaugural Venturous Playwrights Fellowships from the Lark, a $50,000 prize for Susan as well as additional funds to support this world premiere. Full design team and cast will be announced at a later date.

Susan Soon He Stanton’s plays include Today Is My Birthday; We, the Invisibles; Takarazuka!!! (Clubbed Thumb Summerworks); Cygnus (Women’s Project Lab); The Things Are Against Us (Washington Ensemble Theater), and Navigator (Honolulu Theater for Youth). Most recently, she worked in London as a staff writer for the TV series Succession on HBO. She is a member of Page 73’s 2017 Interstate 73 writers group, a two-time Sundance Institute Theater Lab Resident Playwright, and an alumna of the Public Theater’s Emerging Writers Group, SoHo Rep Writer-Director Lab, and The Women’s Project Lab, among other writers groups. Her work has been included on the Kilroy’s List in 2015, ’16, and ’17, and she was recently awarded the Leah Ryan’s FEWW Award for We, The Invisibles as well as an inaugural Venturous Playwrights Fellowship for Today Is My Birthday. She received a Feature Film Development Grant and Screenwriting Award from the Sloan Foundation. Originally from Hawai‘i, Susan an holds a BFA from NYU Tisch’s Dramatic Writing program and an MFA from Yale School of Drama.

Kip Fagan has previously directed for Page 73 the 2010 world premiere of Samuel D. Hunter’s Jack’s Precious Moment and the 2012 musical workshop of Carlos Murillo’s A Thick Description of Harry Smith: Volume 1. Recent directing credits include: NYC: Zayd Dohrn’s The Profane, Heidi Schreck’s Grand Concourse (Playwrights Horizons); Jenny Rachel Weiner’s Kingdom Come (Roundabout Underground); Ike Holter’s Exit Strategy (Primary Stages); Jesse Eisenberg’s The Revisionist and Asuncion, Halley Feiffer’s How to Make Friends and Then Kill Them, Heidi Schreck’s There Are No More Big Secrets, Sheila Callaghan’s That Pretty Pretty; or, The Rape Play (Rattlestick); Ariel Stess’s The World My Mama Raised and I’m Pretty Fucked Up, Sheila Callaghan’s Roadkill Confidential, Rachel Hoeffel’s Quail (Clubbed Thumb); Reggie Watts and Tommy Smith’s Radio Play (P.S. 122). Regional: Alliance, Long Wharf, Woolly Mammoth, Williamstown, Humana, George Street Playhouse, Philadelphia Theatre Company, Portland Center Stage, Marin Theatre Company, City Theatre. Taught and/or directed at Juilliard, NYU, SUNY Purchase, National Theatre Institute, Strasberg Center.

Caswell headshot smallCREAM!, by John J. Caswell, Jr.

As the P73 Playwriting Fellow, John J. Caswell, Jr. will receive a workshop of his play, CREAM!, directed by Dustin Wills (Orange Julius). The workshop will culminate in two readings of the play, October 19 and 20, which are free and open to the public (RSVP required – reservations will open in early October).

CREAM! follows the owners of a bakery who once refused to cater gay weddings as they attempt to rehabilitate their reputation on an over-the-top reality show. As Producing Artistic Director Michael Walkup stated, “The play is a raucous and insightful twist on the debate over individual religious liberties. We’ll be watching the Supreme Court grapple with this very issue this season. John’s play isn’t a straightforward dramatization of that argument – it’s a full-blown explosion of it, complete with tap dancers and talking cake.”

John J. Caswell, Jr. is the 2017 P73 Playwriting Fellow. He is a queer, Mexican-American playwright and director originally from Phoenix, AZ. He is also the Artistic Director of Progressive Theatre Workshop, a company that has made plays for the past ten years. He has developed and shown work across Arizona and in New York City at HERE, Dixon Place, Joe’s Pub at The Public Theater, Primary Stages, and more. His work has been named a finalist for the 2016 Princess Grace Award, the 2017 O’Neill NPC, the Woodward Newman Drama Award, and the 2017 Impact Residency at The Drama League. His plays are frequently cited as examples of queer-themed theatre, most recently referenced in articles appearing in Theatre Topics, The International Journal of the Creative Arts in Interdisciplinary Practice, and the European Journal of Comparative American Studies. Included as a consummate demonstration of auto-ethnographic theatre, his play SHOTS: A Love Story was published as part of Johnny Saldaña’s book Ethnotheatre: Research From Page to Stage published by Left Coast Press.

Dustin Wills is an NYC-based theatre director. Recent projects include Orange Julius by Basil Kreimendahl with Page 73 and Rattlestick Playwrights Theater, Frontieres Sans Frontieres by Phillip Howze at the Bushwick Starr, a new musical with Kate Tarker and Dan Schlosberg called AWFUL EVENT!, and ongoing work on a trio of short Lorca plays. Dustin has worked with The Foundry Theatre, New York Theatre Workshop, Ars Nova, Williamstown Theatre Festival, Berkeley Rep, Echo Theatre, Yale Rep, Berkshire Theatre Group, Lark Play Development Center, Paper Chairs, and Salvage Vanguard Theatre; created large-scale community puppet projects with Creative Action; and devised new work for The English Theatre of Rome and Teatro L’Arciliuto in Rome, Italy. He is a two-time recipient of the Princess Grace Award for Theatre, a Drama League and Boris Sagal directing fellow, former artistic director of the Yale Summer Cabaret, and for a couple of years gave rogue tours of the Vatican. MFA: Yale School of Drama.

John is an incredibly talented playwright who we are proud to have selected for the fourteenth annual P73 Playwriting Fellowship. John will receive a $10,000 award and a development budget to use in collaboration with Page 73 throughout 2017. We will produce at least one public workshop for John this year, and look forward to inviting you!

 

 

John is a queer, Mexican-American playwright and director originally from Phoenix, Arizona, and the Artistic Director of Progressive Theatre Workshop, a company that has made plays for the past ten years. He has developed and shown work across Arizona and in New York City at HERE, Dixon Place, Joe’s Pub at The Public Theater, Primary Stages, and more. He has worked closely with Richard Foreman and Ontological Hysteric Theater, studied with Circle Repertory Company founder and Tony Award winner Marshall W. Mason, and learned directly from Anne Bogart and SITI Company at Arizona State University. His play God Hates This Show: Shirley Phelps-Roper in Concert – Live from Hell (HERE, Joe’s Pub) was named a “Best of 2013” by Time Out New York, who called it “batshit crazy.” His play Cake was named a 2016 Princess Grace Award finalist, a Drama League Impact Residency semifinalist, and was workshopped most recently at Dixon Place. He has also been named a finalist for the Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman Drama Award, and is the recipient of grants from the Pave Program in Arts Entrepreneurship at Arizona State University, as well as The Arizona Commission on the Arts. His work is cited frequently as an example of queer-themed theatre, most recently referenced in articles appearing in Theatre Topics, The International Journal of the Creative Arts in Interdisciplinary Practice, and the European Journal of Comparative American Studies. Included as a consummate demonstration of auto-ethnographic theatre, his play SHOTS: A Love Story was published as part of Johnny Saldaña’s book Ethnotheatre: Research From Page to Stage published by Left Coast Press. He lives in Astoria, Queens with his partner and a Chihuahua named Desi. www.progressivetheatreworkshop.org

“Gentle, Incremental Hedonism”: An Interview with Caroline V. McGraw

Tuesday, October 18th, 2016

Caroline V. McGraw headshot

Playwright Caroline V. McGraw

Producing Artistic Director Michael Walkup and Ultimate Beauty Bible playwright Caroline V. McGraw took a break from rehearsals to grab a coffee and a rainbow donut and talk about the latest Page 73 premiere.

Michael Walkup: The first time we sat and talked about this play must have been, what, three years ago?

Caroline McGraw: Almost four!

MW: Really?

CM: It was late 2012, you were interviewing me for the Fellowship and this was the play I told you I wanted to write.

MW: Did you have pages yet?

CM: I had about fifteen pages and I didn’t know where it was going.

MW: Well, for the record, you got the [2013 P73 Playwriting] Fellowship, and got to writing.

CM: And I brought in pages to Interstate 73 meetings.

MW: Our writers group, that’s right, I always wanted to read [the role of] Tiffany. Since even those first pages the friendship among the three women has been so vivid. I may risk over-generalizing here, but it seems we’re in an age when stories of platonic love are being treated with the same importance as romantic love, which was always the domain of traditional comedy. But today I watch a lot where friends invest in their love, can be disappointed by it, cause problems with it, and it’s not juvenile or less-important-than.

CM: I think there are socioeconomic reasons that “platonic lifemate” relationships are making a comeback – people getting married later or not at all, high cost of living, shifts in family structures. But I think historically platonic love has at times been on the same plane as romantic love -your best pal got just as many sonnets as your lover. I think it’s an area that’s rife for drama. The friendships at the center of Ultimate Beauty Bible have all the highs and lows of a love relationship: chemistry, attraction, jealousy, fear of loss. The women think they should be looking for fulfilling romantic relationships, when their friendships are as complex as any romance.

MW: So you finished a draft during your year as the 2013 P73 Playwriting Fellow, and we did a workshop.

CM: With Stephen Brackett, who’s directing the premiere!

MW: We introduced you two and the relationship stuck.

CM: I learned a lot about the play doing that workshop.

MW: The play centers on women working at a fashion magazine, and so it necessarily is talking about a material, capitalist world. It seems to me, though, that you find something spiritual amidst the material, am I reading that right?

CM: I find the way women relate to each other through beauty and fashion deeply spiritual. It’s a communion. Transformation. My grandmother had shelves and shelves of high-end, amazing makeup, perfumes, and clothing, and from when I was very little, we played with them together. Patting lotion on her face or trying on her clothes helped me to see her and be a part of her. I always wanted to do my friends’ makeup because it was a way to draw on them, to hold their face and study who they are. I love emptying out other women’s makeup bags and just seeing what they choose to decorate themselves with. It feels like, even just in the past few years, that women have embraced – and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie just said this last month – that femininity and feminism aren’t mutually exclusive.

MW: I’ve been reading Hanna Rosin’s The End of Men and thinking about your play. She’s interested in how women are embracing new roles – in work, sex, family – that they had been denied historically, but that men aren’t proving to be as adaptable to new roles. In Ultimate Beauty Bible, your female characters seem more professionally fulfilled than the men.

CM: I haven’t read that book, but I did just read a statistic that more American workforce-aged men are out of work now than at any time since the Great Depression. It’s complicated by a lot of factors, but women are definitely taking the reins. Something I was interested in exploring in Ultimate Beauty Bible is women in women jobs – not that there aren’t men in fashion and beauty, but that my female characters are successful in a women’s sphere. And they’re ruthlessly productive – they take the “light” matters of fashion and beauty heavily. The idea of the housewife who devotes herself wholly to home and hearth is a wealthy construct – women have been working outside the home forever. It feels like the rise of the woman comes from being able to have visibility in the professional sphere, kicking ass at pleasurable, higher-profile endeavors. I wanted my female characters to be as visible, metaphorically and aesthetically, as possible.

MW: The inciting incident of the play prompts the three friends, who are in their early thirties, to face mortality. We all have heard “live every day like it’s your last,” but on the other hand couldn’t that advice could be seen as careless? No one winds up with a 401(k) if every day is the end. In thinking about your characters’ mortality, do you come down on a side of that?

CM: I think we all want to think of ourselves as people who, given a particular reason, could change who we are. We could start to live more fully, boldly, whatever that might entail. I don’t know if people are able to change that quickly, even if an outside circumstance shakes them. Life is an accumulation – no one is who she is by accident. In the play I try to explore all sides of the argument I have with myself about how I might behave if I got life-altering news: the person who tries to change but can’t seem to, the person who thinks her life is just fine the way it is, and the person who really just dives with abandon into a more hedonistic, live-like-there’s-no-tomorrow style. I can see the merit, and the folly, in all of them. I think I might be on the “gentle, incremental hedonism” tip if such a thing exists.

MW: Sitting with your play for these past few weeks – heck, years – makes me think: how much life IS someone supposed to have lived by their mid-thirties? Asking for a friend.

CM: As someone in her, ahem, early 30s, I feel like you’re supposed to have lived enough that you have a lot of good memories and stories of bad breakups and ill-advised piercings (is that just me?), but not so much that you can’t possibly imagine what else could happen. I’ve had a lot of fun and carpe’d the diem, but I also know there’s a lot more I’m going to do. That feels like a good balance.
