When a white male co-worker makes an
off-the-cuff racially insensitive remark to his boss's black female assistant, what seems like a harmless joke snowballs, suddenly catapulting the ad sales office of a women's magazine into turmoil. Threats are made, loyalties tested and contrasting beliefs about power, race and class surface, resulting in an explosion of shocking reveals, lies and accusations, ultimately leaving their department in utter shreds.

Email Works By Women by 6 PM tonight to receive complimentary tickets to any of these performances:
Wed., 6/17, 7:30pm
Thurs., 6/18, 7:30pm
Fri, 6/19, 8pm

The Relentless Award, established in honor of Philip Seymour Hoffman and his pursuit of truth in the theater, is the largest annual cash prize in American theater awarded to a playwright in recognition of a new play.

What we are looking for: Plays that are challenging, Plays that exhibit fearlessness, Plays that are not mainstream, Plays that exude passion, Plays that are relentlessly truthful The American Playwriting Foundation encourages submissions by first time playwrights, women and playwrights of color.

The author of the Relentless Award-winning play will receive $45,000, the option to have the winning play published by the Dramatists Play Service, and a week-long residency at SPACE on Ryder Farm, an artist residency program housed on a working organic farm in Brewster, New York.

The purpose of this play reading series is to develop new works which explore a new voice, expresses storytelling in an unconventional way, challenges both the artists as well as the audience to think outside of the box. The play may explore views on religion, race, gender, politics, social change, hunger, blindness or disability of any kind.

Tisa Chang directs this re-imagining of the epic musical of US military in post-WWII Japan. This production highlights the all female Takarazuka dance theater and how compassion and love can heal prejudice despite the inevitable collision of two disparate, codified cultures.

Performance collective Piehole wakes up an expensive art-object and give it a workout in a surreal gymnasium of sound, video, dance, and sweat.  Inspired by an enigmatic art-book produced from an awkward one-off collaboration between Samuel Beckett and Jasper Johns, Piehole's Hand Foot Fizzle Face examines the self-defeating impulse to transcend ephemerality, in art and life.
