STABLE CABLE LAB CO.
Announces 2017-18 Season
New York, NY: Stable Cable Lab Co. (Artistic Director, Lisa Jill Anderson; Producing Director, Margaret Santa Maria) has announced its 2017-18 season featuring the 4th annual LiveWire: An Evening of Short New Plays, the inaugural Static: An Intergenerational Playwrights Experiment, and the world premiere of Hal & Bee by Max Baker.
The season launches in August with the fourth annual LiveWire, a one-night-only festival with live music, drinks, and five world premiere short plays centered around a chosen theme by some of Stable Cable’s favorite writers. This year’s LiveWire theme is “The World of Tomorrow” and is produced by Alice Johnson and Arthur Kriklivy. Playwrights and more details to be announced in July.
The season continues in December with Static: An Intergenerational Playwrights Experiment at IRT Theater (154 Christopher Street, Buzzer 3B). Is age just a number? Does time divide us? In the first ever Static: An Intergenerational Playwrights Experiment, Stable Cable brings together two playwrights of different generations to craft two brand new one-act plays centering on the same theme, which will be performed back-to-back. The inaugural Static writers are millennial, Stephen Brown and baby boomer, Tim Pinckney. Performances are December 14-17, 2017. Tickets ($18 in advance, $20 at the door) may be purchased at irttheater.org.
In March, Stable Cable Lab Co. teams up with New Light Theater Project for the world premiere of Hal & Bee by Max Baker (Live From the Surface of the Moon, Because Me, The Conspiracists), directed by Sarah Norris at a theater to be announced. Hal & Bee is a dark comedy about an aging hippie couple trying to hold on to their bohemian roots while dealing with the impending sale of their Upper West Side apartment building and the deadly familiarity of their own relationship. On sale date for tickets TBD.
