Table Theater, founded by playwright moi, is presenting a new play about gender, sexuality and the American Dream: it’s called Ducklings.
Ducklings tells the story of four finalists competing for the Dance Hall Queen of Pittsburgh title. Led by entrepreneurial hustler Spider, Ducklings explores the complexity of gender and sexuality within an American capitalist system. Is ‘twerking’, or some other version of female sexuality as spectacle, empowering to women, or degrading? Is the American Dream accessible to everyone?
The workshop reading of Ducklings will take place at:
NATIONAL BLACK THEATER
2031 5th Ave, New York, NY
JANUARY 12, 2015, 8 pm
Direction by Christopher Burris
Choreography by Joya Powell
and more TBA

Table Theater, founded by moi, is raising money to develop a new play about humanity and discard, Hunter John and Jane.
“Hunter John is a bum who lives in the park. He hates litter. He drinks too much. One day he is befriended by the ghost of a dead prostitute who entreats him to help her find her bones so that she can have a proper burial. Through elevated text and stark imagery, Hunter John and Jane explores the boundaries of humanity.”
In this time of increased violence and a growing sense of alienation due to technology and the media, how can humans remain connected to what it means to be human? What does it mean to be human? How can we continue to see value in human life?
The workshop reading of Hunter and Jane will take place at:
579 Metropolitan Avenue, Brooklyn, NY
JANUARY 2-3, 2015, 7 pm
