A solo show by Ayun Halliday
Inspired in part by the life of Kate Claxton, ingenue turned entrepreneur-of-a-certain-age, who spent decades recounting the events of the Brooklyn Theater Fire to sold out crowds… Juliet’s Nurse embarks on a perennial, purgatorial tour to set the record straight.
NURSE premiered at The Tank in NYC in June 2018
Be Prepared! Plan to arrive a little early to settle up with the Scout, and maybe see how Thin Mints (which are vegan, BTW) taste when dipped in wine or beer, which the Tank also sells beforehand.

We spend a lot of time in the stacks of the New York Society Library, truffling up fabulous, illustrated, long-forgotten volumes. Like broken shells on the beach, they get us right in the ol’ bread basket. How to save them from permanent obscurity? HOW’S ABOUT WE RESURRECT ‘EM AS A MONTHLY LOW-BUDGET NYC VARIETY SHOW???
Join us for the first installment, won’t you? More info here!
The Queen of the Apes will be unveiling a new piece as part of PuppetBlok at Dixon Place, Thursday, October 12, 2017
Treat as Urgent and Get Back to Me takes its text directly from a Facetime Conversation with a friend who undergoing treatment for a brain tumor and spam emails that leverage cancer and other tales of woe to prey on the credulous and compassionate. No penises will be enlarged, but a breed of mutant puppets will be metastasized from a trio of spectra nurses live onstage.
Written and directed by Ayun Halliday
With Marjorie Duffield, Chris Lindsay-Abaire, Stephen O’Rourke, Vanessa Petrarca and Stephanie Summerville
Also on the Menu:
PERFORMANCE OF A FEMININE OBJECT by Gabrielle Revlock
THE LAST RAT OF THERESIENSTADT by Hilary Chaplain
#NSA by Parker Allen Stanley
PuppetBlok is made possible in part with funds from the Jim Henson Foundation. More info and tickets here.
In response to a slew of dust ups regarding audience members using their cell phones to text, take photos and screw around on social media during live theatrical performances, the cast and crew of Zamboni Godot invites you to buy a ticket and bring your sketchbook and drawing tools to our Wednesday night performance at The Brick.
Cell Phone Brain keeps you at arm’s length from the action.
Sketchbook Brain draws you in.
We did this in 2015 for Fawnbook and it was a lot of fun for all involved.
The Zamboner Chorus will be posing onstage for your long drawing pleasure prior to curtain, after which the 80 minute performance will proceed as usual… there are moments of stillness and moments of activity.
Zamboni Godot is a raucous mid-life meditation on the comedy of existence, the hell of long term relationships and the play where “nothing happens, nobody comes, nobody goes…”
Starring 9 middle aged women and 9 red chairs!
Tickets and more intel available here.
The Brick is intimate – every seat offers a good view.
Some of the 21 scenes feature moody lighting – feel free to bring a bitty book light, or some other discreet page-illuminating device for the more shadowy scenes
We’d love to see and share your work after the show.
Doors open at 7:00 – Come early to select your seat and avail yourself of some longer preshow poses.
Do YOU have the stamina to see ’em both in a single day?
4 opportunities: Sunday 3/5, Saturday 3/11, Sunday 3/12, Saturday 3/18
