Androcles and the Lion--A War of the Cross

Synopsis:
Androcles and the Lion features a Christian who flees persecution in Rome, yet befriends a lion after pulling a painful thorn from its paw. Captured by Caesar's men, Androcles is ordered to the coliseum to face the lions as punishment. As Androcles enters the ring to be sacrificed, he is recognized and warmly received by the same lion he had helped.

Dickens, The

Synopsis:
the DICKENS features a priest that wants to box with God, a pregnant whore, a greedy Undertaker who uses alcohol to increase his business, and a gambler who's both outlaw and Queen, among others. these bad apples gather in a saloon on Christmas Eve, sing, drink, curse, and fight their way into December 25, only to and find faith in their darkest hour. "What could be more natural in New York City in 2005 than staging an 1880's Western, that happens to be a comedy, that deals with the Christmas story, titled the Dickens," says Carrillo, "the word dickens not only refers to Charles Dickens, but is also used as an expression of severe reprimand, and even to signify the devil himself." the DICKENS is written by theatre for the New City literary manager, Michael Scott-Price.

Lynch PLAY

Synopsis:
Lynch PLAY is a journey in time spanning from the first recorded court case of mandated life-long servitude (slavery) in the 1600's up to the most powerful person in broadcasting today, Oprah Winfrey. Lynch PLAY incorporates original source material from the writings of Benjamin Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson, who wrote extensively about the race issue. As Lynch PLAY unfolds, it becomes clear that our founding fathers not only laid the ground work for democracy, our proudest achievement, but also that their unheralded writings laid the basis for racial hatred, our nation's silent shame.

RomAntic aGE

Synopsis:
RomAntic aGE uses archetypal characters to illustrate the lost, angry and fantastic crisis of Narrator, who is suffering a deluge of personal attacks by life -- first, he witnessed a death, then was betrayed by his wife and now his visions and dreams turn into real-life encounters with messengers not of this time, nor of this world. the verses of poet and artist William Blake provide the vision of this gothic journey.

Venus in Furs

Synopsis:
VENUS IN FURS is a story of a man who has everything and does nothing, yet falls in love with a woman who gives him the courage to confess his deepest urges. She reluctantly accepts to role-play his long-buried super-sensual desires. they are both transformed by this, and the ingredients for love become the ingredients for hate. At its core, VENUS IN FURS is the exploration of the universal human need for primal connection and release. Well over 100 years since its publication, this moving story about a man's strange expression of love still resonates and shocks today. VENUS IN FURS inspired the Velvet Underground, countless films, and an entire alternative lifestyle.
