THE CLIMBERS is a sharp satire from the Gilded Age of both vulgar competitors for wealth and status, as well as the censorious critics who resisted them. In Fitch's incisive eye, the scramble to assert superiority is a curse for all sides in a play that is a welcome appraisal of a divided culture from a century past. His vote for compassion and empathy is one that should count again. Scroll down for a sneak peek at the cast in costume!

Who doesn't remember what it was like to fall in love for the first time? Or to believe that happiness is still possible, even when life has dealt you some pretty shitty cards?
by Julie Musbach - Jan 8, 2017
LEAH, THE FORSAKEN is a tale of forbidden love, treachery, and redemption from 1862. Leah, a Jewish refugee fleeing persecution in Hungary, is forbidden by law to pass the night in an Austrian town. But there she wins the love of Rudolf, a Christian citizen. But when a particularly zealous persecutor convinces Rudolf she will betray him for gold, he quickly renounces her. Bestowing her curse on him and his progeny, Leah retreats to her exile. Five years later, now bound for a better life in America, she finds Rudolf has prospered with his new family, but also become a devoted champion of justice for Austrian Jews. Reconciled to a degree, the couple find grace in forgiveness and contrition, though equality is an elusive treasure.

Obie Award winning Metropolitan Playhouse revives A Marriage Contract, Augustin Daly's 1892 uproarious and poignant commentary on marriage, family, and the contrast between county and city life. Staged by Artistic Director Alex Roe at Metropolitan Playhouse, 200 E. 4th Street, New York City, this marks, to our knowledge, the first time the play (originally titled A Test Case or Grass Versus Granite) is being presented since its premiere. In fact, it worth noting that the script only exists in manuscript form and was never published.

A brand new one man show about the state of our trouble nation comes this spring to Dixon Place for a one night only event. Inspired by and adapted from real life internet commentary revolving around the 2016 U.S. Election, Outrage is a one man show challenging a severely polarized America to listen more closely. The trolling, cyber bullying, and name calling we engage in on a daily basis takes center stage in this brutally honest portrayal of our national turmoil. Originally presented in Dixon Place's Lounge space in March 2018, this workshop production continues its development for a one night event on the Dixon Place mainstage.
