ABOUT NOBODY’S HOME

A mysterious voice, a shadowy owl, platters of strange fruit, surprise special guests, hot oil massages, and a coyote all become bedfellows in Nobody’s Home, a multi-sensory meditation-comedy on the nature of nothing, performed for extraordinary audiences in ordinary bedrooms.

 

Written by Mason Rosenthal and Morgan FitzPatrick Andrews
Starring Mason Rosenthal as Nobody
Direction and set by Morgan FitzPatrick Andrews
Original music by Jonathan Pfeffer

Nobody’s Home premiered in a bedroom above Headlong Studios in South Philadelphia as part of the SoLow Festival and has since appeared in more than 25 venues around the U.S., including at the New Orleans Fringe Festival where audiences experienced it onboard an RV.

Discussing #Curio’s “The Matter of Frank Shaefer”

ABOUT THE MATTER OF FRANK SHAEFER

A World Premiere

With gay marriage being legal in 32 states plus D.C., how will religious organizations who now deny marriage to same-sex couples respond? Our play,The Matter of Frank Schaefer, witnesses the United Methodist Church grappling with that very question. Based on the unprecedented religious trial of the Reverend Frank Schaefer, Curio’s new play is an assemblage of discrimination, defiance, love, family and passionate testimony. Still, countless interviews and research have not yet yielded an ending for the play The Matter of Frank Schaefer as this defiant pastor will have his case taken to the United Methodist’s highest court, the Judicial Council. It looks like the Judicial Council will not only decide the fate of The Reverend Frank Schaefer but it will also decide the ending of The Matter of Frank Schaefer.

Bad Jews
By Joshua Harmon
October 7 – November 30
Independence Studio on 3
The hottest show in New York last season was the break-out comedy, Bad Jews. It is one of the most-produced new plays in America – and we’re excited to bring you the Philadelphia premiere! Meet Daphna Feygenbaum, a “Real Jew” with an Israeli boyfriend that she met on Birthright. When Daphna’s cousin Liam brings home his shiksa girlfriend Melody, he declares ownership of their grandfather’s Chai necklace. A vicious and hilarious brawl over family, faith and legacy ensues. Bad Jews – it’s about what you choose to believe when you’re chosen.

Bad Jews is recommended for mature audiences – for strong language and adult themes.
