Lark News


Ma-Yi Theater Company

January 26th - February 21st

We love all the work our friends over at Ma-Yi are doing, and their current production of Larkee Nandita Shenoy's Washer/Dryer is no exception! Sonya and Michael’s recent elopement in Vegas seemed like a dream come true for both of them until they try living together in Sonya’s Manhattan studio apartment. As they discover that they haven’t been entirely honest with each other or themselves, their secrets come home to roost along with an intrusive mother, the co-op’s strict Board president, a harsh best friend, and a fabulous washer-dryer. Mayhem ensues as the couple is forced to re-evaluate their relationship and decide whether all really is fair in love and real estate.



John Golden Theatre

​Begins Previews February 23rd

After its recent run at The Public Theater, Eclipsed is moving to Broadway!  And going with it is Larkee TJ Weaver.  TJ assists Director Liesl Tommy on this story of women finding and testing their own strength in a hostile world not of their own making. Amid the chaos of the Liberian Civil War, the captive wives of a rebel officer band together to form a fragile community—until the balance of their lives is upset by the arrival of a new girl.



Rattlestick Playwrights Theater

January 28th - February 20th

Lark Litwing member Jay Stull directs the world premier of Utility. In this new play, presented by The Amoralists, Amber has two jobs, three kids and an eight-year-old's birthday party to plan. The house needs fixing up and her on-again, off-again husband, Chris just can't help but make things worse. As Amber struggles to keep things from boiling over, she finds herself a stranger to the person she once was and the person she thought she might be.


Skeleton Crew

Atlantic Theater Company

January 19th - February 14th

Dominique Morisseau, playwright and Larkee, brings you the final installment of her Detroit Trilogy!  Skeleton Crew tells the story of a makeshift family of workers at the last exporting auto plant in the city.  As the characters navigate the possibility of foreclosure, power dynamics shift, and they are pushed to the limits of survival.

The Lark has crossed paths with this play many times during its journey to this world premier.  Read Lark Artistic Director John Clinton Eisner's account of watching both playwright and play develop along the way!



Two River Theater

February 20th - March 20th

Okay, okay, so this one isn't technically in New York, but it isn't far!  And it's chock full of Larkees, with playwright Bárbara Colio, translator Maria Alexandria Beech, and director Lisa Rothe. Plus it's Lark-developed!  So we are suggesting that you hop on NJ Transit and check out Ropes. Paul, Prince and Presley’s dad is an international superstar: the greatest tight rope walker of all time. But his fame has kept him a mystery to his family, leaving each son searching for his own way to soar to new heights.
