Rebroadcast: Simpatico’s “HIR” with Eppchez!

On today’s podcast, I get to know Eppchez! A self-producing artist wearing many hats who is featured in the Simpatico Theatre Project production of “HIR” by Taylor Mac. Get ready, there is some swearing at times. We explore the origins of Alma’s Engine and the dysfunctional family dynamics of “HIR” as it views the nuclear family through a new lens. Stay Tuned!

ABOUT HIR

Somewhere in the tangles of the suburbs, Paige is designing a brave, new path for her children – Isaac, dishonorably discharged from active duty in the Middle East, and Max, caught in the throes of transitioning gender here at home. Freshly liberated by her abusive husband’s debilitating stroke, Paige is waging a cis-revolt in support of Max’s journey, and is now armed to dismantle the patriarchy! In this visceral and delightfully absurd kitchen-sink dark comedy, Taylor Mac explores the struggle to recognize change and the courage to face its messy repercussions.

Rebroadcast: Inis Nua’s “Swallow”

ABOUT SWALLOW

Anna feels a bit of herself fall away every day. Rebecca teeters on the edge after a breakup, wondering who she is on her own. Sam wants to step forward to meet the future. These three strangers’ fragile connections with each other might lead to a shift in their worlds. Stepping or falling, sometimes there is no difference.

Rebroadcast: Seth Rozin takes The Drake

On today’s podcast, I caught up with Artistic Director, Seth Rozin, to talk about the first year at The Drake. While it has only been a year, the conversations began in 2013. On the edge of completing a 2.97 million campaign, Interact aims to create an inclusive space where all are welcome, including resident partners PlayPenn, Simpatico, Azuka and Inis Nua. Stay Tuned!

ABOUT INTERACT and THE DRAKE CAMPAIGN

InterAct has transformed the former ballroom of The Drake (1512 Spruce Street, Philadelphia) into a new, dual theater facility in the heart of the City’s cultural district.

PlayPennSimpatico Theatre ProjectAzuka Theatre, and Inis Nua Theatre will join InterAct as Resident Partners at The Drake, which will host 250+ performances of world and Philadelphia premiere productions, new play readings and workshops, classes, and public conversations for over 18,000 patrons, annually.
