Announcing our October OPEN PLAY LIVE!
OPEN PLAY is a series that gives any and every artist of any discipline a chance to share 5 minutes of work - song, monologue, scene, whatever! The space is yours. The event will be followed by a gathering in the courtyard with snacks and sodas, so be sure to stick around!
This month’s OPEN PLAY will be hosted in-person by Robbie Pollock.
November 9th - December 11th, 2022
Rattlestick presents the world premiere production of The Gett, produced in partnership with Congregation Beth Elohim.
The Gett is a tale of the dirty and the divine, drawing on everything from the Torah to bad sex. It’s about the tacky menorah in your lobby behind the Christmas tree and the lover whose phone number you can’t forget and that voicemail from your mother you haven't listened to yet. As sacred as it is profane, this is a play about recreating a self. Herself.
Rattlestick’s major programming includes the world premiere production of The Gett by Liba Vaynberg, a co-commission with Rattlestick and Congregation Beth Elohim; Amani by a.k. payne, produced in partnership with the renowned National Black Theatre; and the 4th Annual Global Forms Theater Festival, a celebration showcasing and supporting the works of immigrant theater artists living and working in the United States. Additionally, Rattlestick announces the new Lab@Rattlestick - a program designed to develop the work of fellows and commissioned artists while inviting audiences into the theater-making process. . Excerpts of some of these new works will be presented at the fall Season Jam, hosted by Rattlestick Alumni Playwright/Actor Jesse Eisenberg.
