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
