New Attitudes, No Cost
Three new plays by Crystal Skillman, Staceyann Chin & Alaudin Ullah



Crystal Skillman's
4 Edges
Friday, January 24
1PM


A Staged Reading
Directed by Jason Rost
 
In Crystal Skillman's new play an outsider stumbles into a foreign land in search of the perfect photograph, but ambition draws her dangerously deep into the lives of her subjects when she participates in a ritual that exposes her own desires.





Staceyann Chin's
Changing Station

Monday, February 24th

7PM

 

A Solo Performance

Written & Performed by
Staceyann Chin

 

This new one-woman show follows award-winning poet and stage veteran Staceyann Chin (Border/Clash) on her personal journey to motherhood as a single woman, lesbian and activist without stable finances or health insurance but with the burning desire to have a child.

 

 

   

  

Aladdin Ullah's

Dishwasher Dreams

Monday, March 10th

7PM

  

A Solo Performance
Written & Performed by Alaudin Ullah

Tabla Accompanist - Avirodh Sharma

Directed by Chay Yew

 

Auditioning to play a terrorist in a major Hollywood movie may be stand-up comedian Aladdin's big break. As he prepares for his audition, he finds himself thinking back on his deceased father, who left Bangladesh for a better life in New York, and his parents' futile attempts to raise him Muslim in Spanish Harlem. Accompanied by the tabla, Aladdin takes us on a hilarious and moving journey about art, immigration, family, the Yankees and the nature of the American dream.  

   

 

All readings are free and open to the public on a first-come first-serve basis.  No RSVP necessary. All performances take place at the Lynn Redgrave Theater at 45 Bleecker Street.

 

Subway Directions: 6 to Bleecker, BDFM to Broadway Lafayette
