Are We Human

New Ohio Theatre​

July 6th - 9th

Lark Artistic Cabinet member Margarett Perry directs this play by John Kaplan, in which it's the future and America is not so great. Again. A nuclear haze from the Balinese ­Canadian war covers the earth. People have become sterile. Service Androids are forced into Android Towns to be recycled for human parts by Replacements, Inc. Our hero, Ethan, has been demoted to the mailroom. He hates his life. But when his co­worker, Violet, makes a discovery, they embark on an adventure to Android Town, hoping to join forces with an Android Love Revolution. A mash up of 50's science fiction, inspired by the work of James Baldwin.

Joe's Pub

July 14th

Actor, playwright, and Larkee Diana Oh, creator and performer of {my lingerie play}..., brought her show to The Lark for a Studio Retreat earlier this year. The culminating 80 ­minute genre-bending soulful rock and R&B concert­-play and final installation of {my lingerie play}: ten underground performance installations in my lingerie staged in an effort to provide a saner, safer, more respectful world for women to live in is a call to action of artistic warfare, proving the tenacity and willingness to communicate by whatever means necessary.


The Healing

Theater Breaking Through Barriers

Now Playing - July 16th

In this new play by former PoNY Fellow Samuel D. Hunter, a motley group of friends met as kids at a summer camp, where the head counselor secretly taught them their disabilities could be “cured” through the power of prayer. Twenty five years later, the group has gathered to mourn the untimely passing of one of its members. Over the course of the night, old wounds are uncovered, friendships are tested, and the truth surrounding their late friend becomes troublingly clear.

Ten explorers. Four boats. One Grand Canyon. Men On Boats is the true(ish) history of an 1869 expedition, when a one-armed captain and a crew of insane yet loyal volunteers set out to chart the course of the Colorado River.
