Artistic Director Robert Lyons presents the 24th annual Obie Award-winning Ice Factory Festival. Ice Factory 2017 takes place at New Ohio Theatre, located at 154 Christopher Street between Greenwich and Washington Streets in New York City. Ice Factory 2017 will present seven new works over seven weeks, running now through August 12. Scroll down for a sneak peek at some of the productions, and click here for the full lineup!

New Ohio Theatre strengthens, nurtures and promotes a community of independent theatre artists and theatre companies by curating and presenting new work in New York City. With its Ice Factory summer festival the New Ohio offers emerging and established companies a prime forum in which to develop their work. Ice Factory prides itself on maintaining extraordinary aesthetic diversity along with an unequaled standard for intelligent, imaginative theater.

This year Ice Factory is expanding its programming to include "Fridays on Ice," a late night performance salon that includes artists creating work not usually seen in downtown theatre spaces, but more typically found performing in nightclubs, bars, and private apartments. Produced and curated by Kevin Laibson (formerly of The PIT), each evening is individually hosted by an impresario of this alternative storytelling community, and features cutting-edge micro-works by some of NYC's cagiest short-form theater-makers. Lyons says, "This is another example of how the New Ohio is expanding our audience's expectations about what they might see when they walk through our doors." Performances start at 10:30pm, and tickets are $15 ($5 if you also saw the 7pm Ice Factory performance that night). For info on artists as it becomes available, visit NewOhioTheatre.org.

Performances are Wednesdays - Saturdays at 7pm. Tickets are $20, and $16 for students and seniors, and can be purchased online at NewOhioTheatre.org or by calling 212-352-3101.
