Works by James Joyce, Oscar Wilde & More Set for Hangar Theatre's 2016 Wedge Season

The Hangar Theatre's free late-night series, The Wedge, will return to Ithaca this summer under the direction of 2016 Drama League Directing Fellows Chloe Treat, Drew Feldman, Yavor Kostov, and Katie Lupica. The Fellows will be staging productions of H. Leivick's The Golem, the world premiere of Oh Oh You Will Be Sorry! by Claire Kiechel, James Joyce's The Dead, and Salome by Oscar Wilde. The plays will last 45 minutes each and will be brought to life by the 2016 Hangar Lab Company.

H. Leivick's The Golem
Directed by Drew Feldman
June 23rd & 24th at 10:00PM

Drenched in the magic and mystery of Kabballah, The Golem retells the legend of a sixteenth-century Rabbi in Prague who defies God when he molds and animates a huge earth-made figure to defend the Jewish community from pogroms. Originally written as a poem in 1921 by Russian expatriate H. Leivick, the play carries with it powerful echoes of the dilemmas still faced by our civilization today.

Oh Oh You Will Be Sorry! by Claire Kiechel
Directed by Katie Lupica
July 7th & 8th at 10:00 PM

Five women gather for champagne brunch in a suburban living room. But, sorry, does anyone know what we're celebrating? Or whose house this is? Are we missing anything? Or anyone? A brand new dark comedy about what's known and what's unknowable among even the closest of friends.

James Joyce's The Dead
Directed by Chloe Treat
July 14th and 15th

The Feast of Epiphany and its revelation approach. In celebration, you are formally invited to the Misses Morkan's Annual Dance. Dublin, Ireland. 1904. Come, let your soul swoon with us.

Salome by Oscar Wilde
Directed by Yavor Kostov
July 28th and 29th
The beauty of Princess Salome can enchant anybody except the imprisoned prophet Iokanaan. Faced with rejection by the one she loves, Salome casts a death wish on Iokanaan, forcing King Herod to decide between his own desire for her and his fears from the uncanny powers and influence of the prophet. Esthetically elevated text, based on the Gospels: Power, passion, and prophetic visions intermingled in a modernized interpretation.
