Maker of Worlds, a convention-bending, female-empowering, myth-reclaiming play by Wendy A. Schmidt, will premiere as part of the Dream Up Festival at Theater for the New City on September 2nd with consecutive performances through September 7th. Jeri Frederickson directs versatile actress Amy Gorelow in this funny absurdist play that ranges from comedy to pathos.

Martha, a deity, decides to destroy the world because there's no good left in it. A second deity disguised as her yoga instructor proposes fighting the system instead. But Martha's husband Warren built the system, and somewhere on another plane, Martha is still in love with Jim Morrison. One woman plays six characters in this play about creativity, Capitalism and the divine in all of us.

Maker of Worlds will start as part of Theater for the New City's Dream Up Festival (155 First Avenue between 9th and 10th Streets) on Monday September 2nd at 6:30PM in the Cabaret Theater. The performance schedule is Monday 9/2, Wednesday 9/4 & Thursday 9/5 @ 6:30PM, Tuesday 9/3 & Friday 9/6 @ 9PM and Saturday 9/7 @ 5PM. Tickets are $12.
