Our Upcoming Projects

Stories of Climate Change

Announcing an Evening of Climate Action. We will present an evening of readings of 11 short plays about climate change as part of a worldwide series of readings and performances presented to coincide with, and raise awareness of, the United Nations Madrid Climate Conference (COP25).

Climate Change Theatre Action is a program of the Arctic Cycle theatre company who commissioned the plays.

Our readings will be at the Episcopal Actors Guild, 1 East 29th St, NYC 10016
at 8:00pm on Lucky Friday, December 13
Tickets will be only $10 on Artful.ly or $12 cash at the door.

Ripcord

Joan Kane will direct and Bruce A! Kraemer will light Ripcord by David Lindsay-Abaire for an east side theatre company at 150 E36th St NYC 10016. This is not an Ego Actus production.

Description

A sunny room on an upper floor is prime real estate in the Bristol Place Senior Living Facility, so when the cantankerous Abby is forced to share her quarters with new-arrival Marilyn, she has no choice but to get rid of the infuriatingly chipper woman by any means necessary. A seemingly harmless bet between the old women quickly escalates into a dangerous game of one-upmanship that reveals not just the tenacity of these worthy opponents, but also deeper truths that each would rather remain hidden.

Performance Dates

December 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 & 7 at 8:00pm. December 8 at 2:00pm

New Project

Somebody has asked us to present a new play in New York City. It is too early to be specific, but this would be our 50th Ego Actus production. Joan Kane will direct and Bruce A! Kraemer will produce and do the lighting design.

Almost 13

At this time we are doing early work in preparation of taking Almost 13, written and performed by Joan Kane and directed by Bruce A! Kraemer to the 2020 Edinburgh Festival Fringe. We also plan to present it in the East to Edinburgh Festival at 59e59 theaters in early August.
