Photo Flash: The Theater At The 14th Street Y Presents THE SARAH PLAY
THE IN[HEIR]ITANCE PROJECT and THE 14TH STREET Y are pleased to share with Broadway World a first look at THE SARAH PLAY, as part of The Genesis Plays, a collection of plays inspired by stories in the book of Genesis, and devised with communities in different US cities. Created in a collaborative process led by Jon Adam Ross and directed by Chantal Pavageaux, THE SARAH PLAY performs in rep (with four other plays) during a three-week limited engagement at The Theater at the 14th Street Y (344 E 14th St at 1st Ave, New York, NY 10003). Performances began Tuesday, May 1st and continue through Wednesday, May 16, 2018.
Three actors tell the ancient, sacred story of Sarah and Hagar, the mothers of Isaac and Ishmael, drawing from Muslim, Christian and Jewish traditions. The storytellers struggle to determine which religion's version of the narrative gets told, when there are multiple accounts of what happened.
Produced by Martha Goode. Featuring set design by Deb O, costume design by Andja Budincich, lighting design by Stacey Boggs, and sound design by Caroline Faustine. Tyler Winthrop is the stage manager, Eli Reid is the production manager, and Zhailon Levingston is the associate director. Marketing/PR by Kampfire PR, and graphic design by Billy Keefe.
Tickets are $18 (or see three plays for $14 each with a Flex Pass) and are now available online at www.14streety.org/genesis or by calling 646-395-4310. Tickets may also be purchased in-person at the box office half-hour prior to the performance. Running Time: 70 minutes
The developmental process of The Genesis Plays includes text study with artists and clergy, devising workshops, open rehearsals with participating organizations and houses of worship, performance talkbacks, and community engagement events where local artists and audiences also respond to the source material.
The Genesis Plays are funded with generous support from The Covenant Foundation, in association with Downtown Jewish Life, co-presented by The Theater at the 14th Street Y.
