The Arctic Group 1st New York International FRIDGE Festival
August 31 through September 10, 2017
AT IRT THEATRE (154 Christopher Street, 3B)
Born in response to the news that the NY Fringe Festival would not take place in the summer of 2017, The FRIDGE Festival is a multidisciplinary theater festival which will feature new works. We place no restrictions on pieces and are excited to present a wide variety of genres. We do, however, require that all plays include (nay, feature) a fridge.
Show Block B features work of Daniel Talbott and starring Will Pullen!
From the synopsis:
Talbott’s play, Nick and Zoe, begins at 3:28 am. Mid-August in West Harlem. One of those summer nights that feels like the oxygen is being burnt out of the air. Nick lies on the floor, wearing only a pair of dirty white socks. Zoe, lit by the light of the refrigerator, huddles against the doorway of Nick’s kitchen in the dark. Both of their lives have been irrevocably changed. We start at the end and work back.
My thoughts? Maybe Will will be fully nude!
