2011-2012 Season

We are proud to announce our 2011-2012 Season beginning this FALL at the legendary CHERRY LANE THEATRE. As a young company made up of Actors, Directors and Playwrights, we couldn't feel more proud to return to the Cherry Lane under the leadership of Angelina Fiordellisi.

This season begins with a collaboration with emerging production company, East 3rd Productions (Ricardo Riethmuller, Artistic Director; Lorraine Rodriguez, Managing Director (Barefoot Ensemble Member); and Michael Mallard, Creative Director). We team up this Oct, Nov and Dec to bring you a variety of new works, a revised / highly controversial play, and many workshops. During our 9 week, yes 9 week!, residency at The Cherry Lane Theatre, we will make it a point to bring you the most affordable, high quality work we've been known for. Special performances will be presented at an Admission Price lower than the cost of a Movie as well as a PAY WHAT YOU CAN opportunities.

"Raft" grabs, holds and harrows. Unquestionably hits home and hits hard. Emphatically worth seeing." CLIVE BARNES, NEW YORK POST.
