33 Variations Drama 8 (4m, 4f) View Details Compare
Short
Synopsis

A mother coming to terms with her daughter. A composer coming to terms with his genius. And, even though they're separated by 200 years, these two people share an obsession that might, even just for a moment, make time stand still. Drama, memory and music combine to transport you from present-day New York to nineteenth-century Austria in this extraordinary American play about passion, parenthood and the moments of beauty that can transform a life.

"You don't have to know Beethoven from Bach to find yourself thoroughly absorbed by the theatricality with which Kaufman has tied a historic event—the legendary mystery surrounding one of Beethoven's compositions—to a drama about a fatally ill Beethoven scholar, her relationship with her daughter and the daughter's burgeoning romance" —CurtainUp.

"It's a compellingly original and thoroughly watchable play for today that deserves to be remembered" —Talkin' Broadway.

49th Cousin, The Comedy/Satire 10 (7m, 3f) View Details Compare
Short
Synopsis

As outlined in the New York Mirror, "It is based on [Lowe's] reminiscences of her late grandfather…Isaac Lowe was a cantankerous, opinionated man. He founded a synagogue in Syracuse at the turn of the century, and almost wrecked it. His possessiveness and prejudice kept his three daughters on the verge of spinsterhood until they revolted against his tyrannical ways. Being of German Jewish stock, Isaac looked down on Russians, Poles, Austrians and Hungarians. When one of his daughters defied him and married a young Russian salesman, he was irate. He was even more so when another became engaged to a Gentile school principle. Isaac thought the Lord had deserted him. He tried to turn atheist. But in the end, everything came out all right. The generosity of others made him see the error of his ways. A lightning bolt that hit the temple also helped…The title refers to the fact that if we believe in Adam and Eve, we're all cousins—forty-ninth or farther removed."

"The people…are such a truly sweet lot…that I'd like to think that they were still carrying on, somewhere, after the curtain has gone down." —NY Herald-Tribune. "…exceedingly funny lines…" —NY Newsday.

9 Circles Drama 3 (2m, 1f) View Details Compare
Short
Synopsis

A psychological thriller based on actual events, 9 CIRCLES tells the story of an American soldier on trial for his life. The young soldier—honorably discharged but then accused of an unspeakable war crime in Iraq—Daniel Reeves is forced to navigate a Dantesque labyrinth of commanding officers, public defenders, lawyers, preachers and military psychiatrists. By turns shocking, mesmerizing and bitingly funny, 9 CIRCLES accompanies this astonishing young solider on a tour de force journey to a shattering conclusion in which the infinite size and tremendous power of a young man's soul is revealed.

"It's a dense, fiercely performed and provocative journey…a gritty, at times revealing trip." —San Francisco Chronicle. "The power and punch of 9 CIRCLES is undeniable. Cain's script zeroes in on one soldier's story and leaves us feeling the inescapable historic and emotional weight of the entire war. This is theater that shakes your foundation and leaves you breathless." —Bay Area Backstage.  

9 Parts of Desire Drama 1 (0m, 1f) View Details Compare
Short
Synopsis

A portrait of the extraordinary (and ordinary) lives of a whole cross-section of Iraqi women: a sexy painter, a radical communist, doctors, exiles, wives and lovers. This work delves into the many conflicting aspects of what it means to be a woman in the age-old war zone that is Iraq. An unusually timely meditation on the ancient, the modern and the feminine in a country overshadowed by war. 9 PARTS OF DESIRE can be performed as a one-woman show or with a cast of three to nine women.

Winner of a 2005 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize Special Commendation

and Lucille Lortel Award for Best Solo Show. "…a triumph…thrilling…an example of how art can remake the world…In this remarkable one-woman show, [Heather Raffo's] writing…is marked with wit and by a scrupulous attention to the details of character." —The New Yorker. "It brings us closer to the inner life of Iraq than a thousand slick-surfaced TV reports. Yet [Raffo's] beautifully shaped one-woman play is a play, not a stodgily earnest piece of documentary theater, and therein lies its singular force and compulsion: It is persuasive precisely because it is beautiful." —Wall Street Journal. "…powerful, impassioned, vivid, memorable…The voices are a study in contrasts: vivid and subdued, sophisticated and naïve, seductive and standoffish. But they cohere to form a powerful collective portrait of suffering and endurance." —NY Times. "The female half of Iraq has come to America." —Gloria Steinem.

Short
Synopsis

It is the custom of Hector Pomadour to invite his friends to his home on Sunday for lunch and skittles. On this occasion, one of them has run into another gentleman on his way and has invited him to join the group. Hector is delighted, as Adolphe Dumanoir seems to be a man worthy of cultivation, at least, that is, until he is caught hugging and kissing Hector's wife. This, of course, calls for satisfaction, and despite the summer heat a duel is decided upon—after Hector has been assured by his friends that the guilty party would never think of defending himself against the injured husband. When Dumanoir makes it clear that he has no intention of being so foolishly gallant the picture changes, and while Hector and the others huddle to discuss strategy Madame Pomadour and Dumanoir hatch a little plot of their own. He agrees to let Hector off with a scratch, provided that Madame P. gives him another kiss. This she does, only to be discovered again—and the outrage is aggravated. But Gallic ingenuity comes to the fore, honor is satisfied, and all ends in a spirit of jovial camaraderie.

A gay and witty study of what happens when one French gentleman comes upon another French gentleman kissing the first gentleman's wife.
