Lost traditions. Memory gaps. Lessons forgotten. Action and images shift in the mind of a woman with Alzheimer's, flickering from past to present, from her daughter's home to the nursing home. Who are we when we can't remember?  An intergenerational meditation on the fluid nature of identity and our national inability to remember history. With original music and video.

Heistman is stuck—inside the bank he is robbing with his henchmen, inside his own tortured head, and inside the feeling he can never have success or love. The cops have the joint surrounded, and have no answers. But the hostages do. Dog Day Afternoon meets The Unabomber Manifesto.  Dance/theater for visionaries, the weak at heart, and the pleasure-seekers alike.

His daughter doesn’t need him. His wife might leave him. His newspaper vender might just kill him.

A large-scale deconstruction of our culture's preoccupations. Incorporates elements of theatre, dance, film, music and installation art.

Rival father/daughter news anchors compete for ratings in a head-to-head prime-time showdown. Their vicious battle for supremacy becomes a national drama as sex scandals, terrorism, and dementia threaten their careers.

A wicked satire about heredity and corruption among media royalty. Faithlessly adapted from King Lear.

This New York debut is fresh off of heralded stops Edinburgh and London.


“Shaplin and his director Whit MacLaughlin obviously have a lot to say about the modern state of the press and media” -Nytheatre.com

“Slick… Ferocious… Mesmeric”

The Independent

“Twisted… Crude… Riveting”

Evening Standar"

“Smartly funny… terrific”

The Guardian
