In 1993, a respectable Australian newspaper reported that a local 11-year old boasted fish gills. Sabooge Theatre imagines the story of this boy and follows a hard-shell fundamentalist preacher and an idealistic marine biologist who go to ideological war over the discovery of this boy who can breathe under water.


“Great impact”


“This cautionary tale about the dreadful coast to humanity when science and religion duke it out”.


“NY audiences will recognize the physical inventiveness, precise character studies, and found-object set designs that characterize a Jacques Lecoq Ecole trainee.”

-The NY Sun Weekend

Kevin Doyle’s play The Position is an absurdist tragicomedy about the alienation and despair of the modern urban worker.

“A large helping of Sartre, Kafka, and a similar dishes, finished off with a Twilight Zone sundae (…) big laughs (…), breaks the mold”.
-New York Times

“The rythms of ritual are captured to perfection by Doyle and his cast....An ode to empty capitalist conformity, ... a kind of surrealist political drama, (…) half-rage against the machine, … half far-out fantasy....Doyle is clearly a writer of talent and intelligence.”

Psche is nominally a musical about James Barry, a real-life 19th century doctor who treated lepers, rankled royalty, and was actually a woman in disguise. Deborah Wallace makes Barry less of a girl-power hero than a gifted outcast whose arrogant belief in her own genius leads her to upset convention.

“A delight”


“Elegant and devastating new musical”.

“The play abounds with bold, intoxicated choices that worked because of the ensemble’s commitment”.

A cockamamie meditation on this new era of global (in)security, Major Bang springs from the contents of a backpack left on the subway, samples the Kubrick film, and mixes in a radioactive boy scout, an over-caffeinated dad, and a love affair doomed for disaster.

"Major Bang never shies away from how scared we actually are. Still, laughing at atrocity is this show's raison d’etre."

 -New York Sun

"This Foundry production is surely the happiest show to have been inspired by the horrors of 9/11."

-The New York Times
