The Waverly Gallery

by Kenneth Lonergan

A Black Curtain Reader’s Theatre

SEPTEMBER 26 & 27, 2019 @ 7:30 PM

The Waverly Gallery
A Painting of Dementia: Aging with Eloquence and Empathy

Once a vibrant lawyer, Greenwich Village activist and family matriarch Gladys Green has run a charming boutique art gallery on Waverly Place for decades. But management wants to replace her less–than–thriving gallery with a coffee shop, at the same time that feisty Gladys’s world is shrinking through loss of memory and hearing. Finalist for the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Kenneth Lonergan’s (Manchester By The Sea) powerful story, called “wrenchingly beautiful” by The Wall Street Journal, sheds a lasting and humorous light on how Gladys’s family struggles to cope with her fading faculties while quietly challenging us to examine how we look after each other.

Sylvia
A “howlingly” funny play about A Man, A Dog, and A Midlife Crisis

Greg and Kate have recently moved to New York City from the ’burbs after becoming empty nesters. During a walk in Central Park, Greg, who’s suffering through a mid‑life crisis, discovers a dog with a heart‑shaped tag that reads simply “Sylvia” and becomes hopelessly smitten. Greg brings home the perky pooch — hilariously played by a real‑life actor who brings Sylvia’s every thought to life — only to find that Kate does not want a dog at this stage in her life, let alone one that jumps, slobbers, chews up books and is clearly competing for Greg’s affections. Called a “beautiful, funny, touching and profound play”, Sylvia is a modern romantic comedy about unconditional love, the need for connection, and how a dog may be just the ticket to save a marriage.

The Basement Bunch Presents
A Very Merry Holiday Spectacular

An original show written by David Blair
with Mikey Winn, Becky Rygg, and Collette Strean

WTC Holiday Cabaret
A WTC Original Holiday Show!

After months of cancelled events due to the pandemic of 2020, five neighborhood friends, known as the Basement Bunch, decide that an original holiday show would be the perfect solution to brighten everyone’s dampened spirits. There is just one catch - the kids can only audition people in their limited social bubble, including their parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, and babysitter. In the process of creating their show, they discover that some things don't go as smoothly as they had dreamed, as bad behaviors flare and jealousies erupt. In the end, however, these friends are able to pull together to put on A Very Merry Holiday Spectacular, discovering along the way what really matters: family and love and community and songs and dancing and candy and presents and cats and talent (or lack thereof) and pizza rolls - but mostly love. This original WTC show promises to be the family holiday event of the season!

Our Mother’s Brief Affair

by Richard Greenberg

A Black Curtain Reader’s Theatre

JANUARY 30 & 31, 2021 @ 7:30 PM

Our Mother’s Brief Affair
Did She? Or Didn’t She?

On the verge of death for the umpteenth time, Anna makes a shocking confession to her grown children: an affair from her past that just might have resonance beyond the family. But how much of what she says is true? While her children try to separate fact from fiction, Anna fights for a legacy she can be proud of. With razor–sharp wit and extraordinary insight, Our Mother’s Brief Affair considers the sweeping, surprising impact of indiscretions both large and small. Says The New York Times, Our Mother’s Brief Affair is a “sort of everyday detective story”, illuminating “how little we know about the lives that impinge upon and shape our own.”

Radiant Vermin

by Philip Ridley

A Black Curtain Reader’s Theatre

MARCH 17 & 18, 2021 @ 7:30 PM

Radiant Vermin
How far will go to get your dream home?

Jill is expecting her first baby and she and her husband Ollie are desperate to find a home of their own for their new family. When a mysterious stranger offers the young couple an ideal house, it prompts the question: at a time of crisis in the housing market, how far would you be prepared to compromise your principals to secure a home for you and your family? Be prepared to be appalled at yourself for laughing aloud at the horrors revealed in Radiant Vermin, a wickedly funny, pitch–black satire about consumerism, gentrification, and inequality. Says the New York Times, “like a Brothers Grimm story, Radiant Vermin is executed with its own consistent fantasy logic, deployed to remind us of the dangers of getting what we wish for.”

Things Being What They Are

by Wendy MacLeod

A Black Curtain Reader’s Theatre

MAY 8 & 9, 2021 @ 7:30 PM

Things Being What They Are
Love, Loss and Being A Guy or A Quirky Bro‐Mantic Comedy

The minute Bill moves into his new condo, anxiously waiting for his unfaithful wife and his furniture, his nosy neighbor Jack appears at the door ‐ looking for some beer and sympathy. At first Jack appears to be a nightmare neighbor - intrusive, needy, boorish ‐ but gradually Bill’s perception of his new “friend” deepens. While Bill learns how Jack has managed to lose his wife’s trust and his children’s love, he also discovers that Jack is wrestling with circumstances that would challenge the best of us. In this wistful and off‐beat comedy, Things Being What They Are follows an unlikely bond between two regular guys as they debate the meaning of love, loss, masculinity, and the needs that bring people together and drive them apart.
