American Divide by Maximillian Singh Gill, July 8 at 8:00 pm. After a take-over by a right-wing government prompts the secession of several states, a refugee, a border control officer, and a mercenary meet in a bar in Las Vegas. They want escape, justice, and money, but mostly they just want to survive in a splintered America on the verge of civil war.
Ego Actus will present Almost 13 written and performed by Joan Kane, directed by Austin Pendleton.
This is a solo adaptation of the memories of a young girl’s hot, sweaty summer in Brooklyn. Can she survive being caught between a disintegrating family at home and racial violence on the streets? All she wants to do is jump in the waves at Coney Island and see the fireworks. Joan wrote the original 15 character play at the LaMama playwriting symposium in Umbria, Italy.

She was a Kintsugi girl. Like ceramics repaired with gold, emotional breakage is part of her history, not something to hide.
