Bridge Street Theatre Hosts “The Fridge Plays” [Berkshire on Stage]
Two cutting-edge one-acts, two playwrights, two directors, five actors, one refrigerator. Straight from a sold-out run in NYC, The Fridge Plays – Daniel Talbott’s Nick and Zoe, directed by Shira-Lee Shalit and Steve McMahon’s sad indie love song, directed by Benjamin Viertel – hit Catskill’s intimate Bridge Street Theatre stage like a punch to the gut for two performances at 7:30pm on Friday & Saturday (December 1 & 2).
Originally presented on a double-bill as part of Arctic Group’s recent Fridge Fest in Manhattan (which featured 10 new plays with nothing in common but a refrigerator), this harrowing, intense, sexy, raw, fierce evening of grab-you-by-the-throat theater comes to Catskill with its original cast of brilliant young New York actors intact. Nick and Zoe stars Will Pullen (from the Broadway company of last year’s Pulitzer Prize winning play Sweat) and Erica Pappas, while sad indie love song features the talents of Declan Maloney Drummond, Natalie Donahue and Shawna Winey. Tristan Raines provides the costumes, while David Anzuelo is responsible for handling the choreography of the sex and violence in the production.
