A Barn Play
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
Northern Manhattan’s own UP Theater Company presents a different kind of animal farm in the world premiere of Lizzie Donahue’s “A Barn Play” March 18-April 4, 2020. This timely and darkly comic fable explores the power of creating art amidst oppression when a cast of farm animals rehearses their show. Directed by Melissa Moschitto, Founding Artistic Director of The Anthropologists.
Owl (Rik Walter*) attempts to rehearse his new play with a lively and opinionated ensemble of farm animals: Chicken (April J. Barber), Pig (Sarah Kiefer*), Dog (Arisael Rivera*), Cow (Mariette Strauss), Sheep (China Pharr), and Cat (Stephanie Chu). Tensions flare when a crisis befalls the animals and the ensemble rejects Owl's arty attempt for one of their own devising - one that sheds light on our own relationships with animals, children, and art. This provocative dark comedy asks, “At a time of crisis, who will stand up and be the pig, and who will be the owl?”
