Women tell “Dirty Joke” too!

Today’s podcast features Jennifer Blaine and director Vashti DuBois. Their production “DIRTY JOKE” opens in the FRINGE and is the culmination of 17 years of character development. Stay Tuned!


“Dirty Joke” centers on one of Jennifer’s most popular characters: Ruth, an elderly Jewish woman with a penchant for off-color humor. Ruth sings, dances, tells jokes, and makes light out of the dark moment in which she finds herself — struggling to hold onto her apartment. As Ruth convenes the first live “Superwoman Conference” (which includes 1 man), Jennifer portrays 8 real-life changemakers who have made a significant impact on our world.

Inspired by one of Jennifer’s relatives, the character of Ruth challenges the audience’s expectations of what an elderly person will say or do. Although she is deeply attached to her home and her intention to keep it, she willingly enters into other character’s worlds and worldviews. Ruth provides the throughline of comic relief because, as Jennifer explains, “Laughter is a gateway to talking and thinking about larger social justice issues.”

Bathtub MobyDick


“For there is no folly of the beasts of the earth which is not infinitely outdone by the madness of men.”

How do we cope with loss? What prevents us from escaping from life? Robert, recently divorced, loses his job and retreats to his bathtub. Disillusioned and overwhelmed by his troubles, he picks up Herman Melville’s novel and begins a journey. Set in a bathroom, The Renegade Company recreates Melville’s characters’ experience aboard the ship.

The show features start Ed Swidey and is conceived/directed by Renegade artistic director Michael Durkin.

The production features brief male nudity.

For the production Renegade teams up for our Unconventional Community Collaboration with The Medicine Womyn Mixology Group and Wildwood Soapworks to create the environment aboard the Peqod.





Love is just a game we “PLAY”!

“If you like it, you shoulda put a ring on it”! Today’s podcast marks the return of two of our favorite things! One, a person, Griffin Stanton-Amiesen and Two, the return of Neil Haven’s “PLAYDATERS”! The last limited run was a sell out and this run will most likely be the same so, get your tickets, play the game…bring a date!! Stay Tuned!



This coming Fringe…look out for Matchbox Theatre Project’s re-mount of the 2012 Valentine’s Day HIT: Neil Haven’s raucous comedy “The Playdaters”!

First dates are stressful, especially when you keep score. Roommates Spencer and Erwin exploit a dating website to play a game of pranks on unsuspecting women. As the rules of the game break down, so do the rules of a conventional romantic comedy. Spencer wants to try a real relationship with a one-dimensional character, and Erwin learns that he can control his simple stage world in the most astounding ways.

Through their crazy antics, the audience is asked to examine and laugh at, the chaos, desperation, and desire that lies in a “real” relationship.

*This show features adult content, and juvenile shenanigans.

The cast features Sean Bradley, Dana Kreitz, Clare O’Malley and Griffin Stanton-Ameisen. The design team is Daniel Kontz (sound) and Robin Stamey (lights).

“The Playdaters” will open on Tuesday September 17th, 2013 at 8pm and run Wednesday the 18th-Saturday the 21st at 11pm in the 3rd floor studio theatre at Plays and Players. Tickets available at the door ($15, student and under 25 discounts available) or online or at:



Pass the “Dutch”! – EXTENDED through 9/29!

Today’s podcast features the @LiveArtsFringe @AzukaTheatre production of Dutch Masters by Greg Keller. This production is part of FringeArts and begins the season for Azuka. Stay Tuned!



A young white man and a young black man meet on a D train to the Bronx and strike up a conversation. It’s 1992. Los Angeles is still smoldering, the Crown Heights riots are a recent memory, and this chance encounter will lead these two young men into a head-on confrontation in a story that goes from Rockefeller Center to 145th St and everywhere in between. A piercingly insightful comedy-drama that takes a frank and deeply human look at the problems of race in America.

“Keller’s brilliant, concise script pries open the shadowy recesses required to support lives of privilege.” – The Boston Globe

** *Please Note: Tickets for this production are available through the FringeArts Box Office or at the venue door one hour prior to each performance. Tickets can also be ordered via phone by calling the FringeArts Box Office at (215) 413-1318.
