She’s 23, which you’d immediately glean from seeing this pretty young woman onstage. But you’d never know she was a mere 23 from her new play THE SUMMONING. Charlotte Ahlin knows how to write not only for Circe, the wild ‘n’ wooly character she’s playing herself, but also for her young friend Morgan and HER young friend Lily. Director Emily Lyon certainly knew how to cast it, too with Danielle Cohn as Morgan and Jacque Emord-Netzley, who had the toughest role as Lily. THE SUMMONING is an often funny, often harrowing script that keeps you guessing — even after you think you’ve made a firm decision on what’s really going on. Not so fast — the only firm idea you’ll have is that three actresses, one director and a terrific new playwright really know how to put on a show.”
— Peter Filichia, critic emeritus, The Star-Ledger

NOW THAT’S WHAT I CALL MOM’S INSURANCE

Stuck in a rather awkward age group in a rapidly corroding country, several young writers have come together to raise fictional havoc for your viewing pleasure. MOM’S INSURANCE is an assemblage of of plays by cockamamie playwrights under the age of 26. In this group-show you’ll find Grim Reaper romances, casual resurrections, exoskeleton excavations, and good old fashioned ventures into the business of manufacturing. It’s an electric and eclectic night of theatre that’ll leave you bellowing “FREE US FROM THESE FLESH PRISONS!”

FRIDAY, JULY 28 AT 7:30PM
Dixon Place
161A Chrystie St, New York, NY
