Tickets Now Available for Honest Accomplice Theatre's ReconFIGUREd
After sold out runs of Honest Accomplice Theatre's (HAT) The Birds and the Bees: Unabridged, HAT returns to The Tank with their new show, ReconFIGUREd. ReconFIGUREd began in 2015 when HAT distributed a survey taken by 1,200 people and learned "the body" ranked as the number one topic people would like to see explored on stage. In 2016 HAT hosted over 20 free community brainstorming workshops to hear what topics and issues are important to highlight in their show. They spent four months generating material with their ensemble, created a narrative structure, and continued rehearsals this past fall to create the upcoming production at The Tank.

About Honest Accomplice Theatre
Honest Accomplice Theatre's (HAT) mission is to drive individual acceptance among, and incite community dialogue about, women and trans people. They do this by exploring topics that are often silenced, seen as shameful, or portrayed as one-dimensional. HAT energizes that community, and those around them, by engaging professionals and members of the community to devise new work that surfaces the nuanced and personal experiences of women and trans people. This approach empowers the community itself with opportunities to construct and own their narratives, as well as engage audiences, allowing them to relate experiences played on stage to those in their own lives. HAT creates work in New York City and then tours to community centers, universities, high schools, and senior centers, allowing their art to stimulate dialogue with an ever growing number of people. honestaccomplice.org
