The Bushwick Starr Presents CABIN
The Bushwick Starr presents the world premiere of CABIN, the latest from Bessie nominated Sean Donovan (The Reception at HERE, House/Divided at BAM), with original compositions by Obie Award winner Heather Christian (Animal Wisdom at The Bushwick Starr, The World is Round at BAM).
Part dance, theater, and film, CABIN explores violence, the complexities of queer desire and intimacy, and the lines between biography and fiction. It follows three queer men and the creation and destruction of their relationship in a cabin in the woods. It is a story, but it is also about story itself, how story is told and how disparate forms of expression can serve in the evocation of the feelings and sensations of memory.
CABIN features Tyler Ashley, Sean Donovan and Brandon Washington

The Bushwick Starr is an Obie Award winning non profit theater that presents an annual Season of new performance work. We are an organization defined by both our artists and our community, and since 2007, we have grown into a thriving theatrical venue, a vital neighborhood arts center, and a destination for exciting and engaging performance. We provide a springboard for emerging professional artists to make career-defining leaps, and we are a sanctuary where established performance companies come to experiment and innovate. We are also a neighborhood playhouse, serving our Bushwick, Brooklyn community's diverse artistic needs and impulses. Our past Seasons have included new work from groundbreaking artists such as Heather Christian, Diana Oh, The Mad Ones, Clare Barron, Phillip Howze, Dave Malloy, The Debate Society, Kristine Haruna Lee, and the TEAM.
