HERE & Minor Theater to Present MARIE IT'S TIME in September

Marie It’s Time will begin performances at HERE’s Mainstage Theatre on September 7, 2022, and open September 9 for a limited run through September 24, 2022.

The Obie Award-winning HERE will present Marie It's Time. Created and Produced by Minor Theater, the company that brought you Julia Jarcho's Obie Award-winning Grimly Handsome, Marie It's Time is written by Jarcho, who also performs in her work for the first time. It is the directing debut of celebrated costume designer (and Minor Theater member) Ásta Bennie Hostetter and features original music by Jarcho and Jeff Aaron Bryant (Pollens). Marie It's Time will begin performances at HERE's Mainstage Theatre (145 Sixth Avenue, New York, NY 10013) on September 7, 2022, and open September 9 for a limited run through September 24, 2022.

Obie-winning downtown company Minor Theater (Pathetic, NY Times Critics' Pick, 2019) delivers a f*cked-up mixtape about love, motherhood, and violence. A fresh stab at Woyzeck that collides song and text, Marie It's Time pumps hot blood through the veins of theater's favorite murder-victim. Playwright Julia Jarcho joins Jennifer Seastone (Grimly Handsome) onstage to fight for the role of Marie, Büchner's doomed baby mama, as the director and star of her own seduction.

A three-person play with songs staged as a rock show, Marie It's Time features Kedian Keohan (Good and Noble Beings) as Major, the backbeat and object of lust. Directed by Ásta Bennie Hostetter, with original music composition by Julia Jarcho and Jeff Aaron Bryant, Marie It's Time features sound design from Ben Williams and Elliot Yokum, set design by Meredith Ries, costume design by Hahnji Jang, and lighting design by Ebony Burton.

The performance schedule for Marie It's Time is as follows: Wednesday through Saturday at 7:00pm, Saturday at 10:30pm. There will be an added performance on Friday September 23 at 4pm.

Tickets to Marie It's Time range from $25 - $65 and are available at here.org/shows/marie-its-time.

ABOUT MINOR THEATRE

Minor Theater makes plays in a minor key. With dark humor and goofball precision, we lure you into the tunnels where we feed off pop culture's sticky undergut. Our plays are written and directed by Julia Jarcho in collaboration with award-winning theater artists Ásta Bennie Hostetter, Jennifer Seastone, and Ben Williams. Shows include Pathetic (developed at Baryshnikov Arts Center, fall 2018; Abrons Arts Center, June 2019); Grimly Handsome (2013 OBIE, Best New American Play), The Terrifying (Abrons, 2017); Nomads (dir. by Alice Reagan, Incubator 2014); Dreamless Land (New York City Players/ Abrons, 2011); and American Treasure (13P, 2009). We tell the stories that don't fit into the stories. We are champions of weird desire.
