This is the final week to catch Mia Katigbak, an actor who has loaned her talents to The Lark many times, in the New York premiere of Sarah Ruhl's play, Dear Elizabeth. Drawn from the famed correspondence between Elizabeth Bishop and Robert Lowell – two of the twentieth century’s most brilliant poets – Dear Elizabeth tells a tale of unconventional friendship and intimacy that spanned thirty years and more than 400 letters, with postmarks from Maine to Key West, from London to South America.
ATLANTIC THEATER COMPANY
January 6-February 14
In Dominique Morisseau’s third play in her Detroit trilogy, a makeshift family of workers at the last exporting auto plant in the city navigate the possibility of foreclosure. Power dynamics shift, and they are pushed to the limits of survival. When the line between blue collar and white collar gets blurred, how far over the lines are they willing to step? Dominique is a long time Larkee. She was the PoNY Fellow in 2012-13, and Skeleton Crew was developed at The Lark in our BareBones program.
THE LEE STRASBERG THEATRE & FILM INSTITUTE
Marilyn Monroe Theatre
Playwright, and friend of The Lark, Crystal Skillman received The Clifford Odets Ensemble Play Commission to develop and present Pulp Vérité. In this play, a graduate filmmaker returns to the states from Syria to reunite with her fellow classmates gathered in Martha's Vineyard with the goal of finishing their documentary film. But what once began as a story about creating art to survive in a war torn country becomes personal as the classmates record themselves attempting the impossible: bringing the last member of their filmmaking crew home.
Larkees abound on the small screen as well as on the stage! Catch actors Aaron Costa, Nedra McClyde and Jon Norman Schneider in the new Marvel series, shot in New York. Jessica Jones, played by Krysten Ritter, is a down and out superhero who has left her do-gooder days behind her in exchange for a life as a whiskey guzzling Private Investigator, a la Philip Marlowe. That is until a young girl who falls victim to the mind control powers of a mysterious man in a purple suit needs her help.
