The Brick Theater Presents THE HOLLOW Written and directed by Matthew Freeman (writer of the acclaimed The Listeners and That Which Isn't), The Hollow is an evening of expressionist short plays that, in Freeman's inimitable style, dive into landscape of our vast interior lives.

In the great expanse of space there is nothing to see but More, More, More follows seven women through the fractured experience of a foreboding diagnosis; a hand emerges from the water is a portrait of harrowing memory; and The Language dramatizes the excavation of an secret, lost language. The cast includes Moira Stone (2017 NYIT Award for Outstanding Actress in a Leading Role) and Matthew Trumbull ("a downtown treasure" - Time Out New York; 2015 NYIT Award for Outstanding Actor in a Leading Role).

The Hollow will play at The Brick (579 Metropolitan Ave at Lorimer Street, Williamsburg, Brooklyn) Wednesday May 23rd, Thursday May 24th, Friday May 26th, Saturday May 27th, Wednesday May 30th, Thursday May 31st, Friday June 1st and Saturday June 2nd. $25 Tickets may be purchased online at or by calling 866-811-4111. Performances are Wednesday - Saturday at 7:30pm. Runtime: 90 minutes.
