Asylos Theater Company is drawing on Plath’s complicated canon for its newest immersive show, Out of the Ash, playing at Glasshouse (246 Union Ave.) in Williamsburg on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 8:00 pm.

Billy & Co Present A Dream Play 11/29-12/2

Beginning Thursday 12/29 through Sunday 12/2 Billy & Company present A Dream Play at The End (13 Greenpoint Ave). The company’s mission is to produce more creative and inclusive theater programming in North Brooklyn through innovative collaboration. A Dream Play, by August Strindberg and directed by Kate Murray, tells the story of a young girl’s reality through the associative narrative of a dream.  Set in a hazy Appalachian fog of indiscernible time and place, Billy & Co’s rendering is told through quickly shifting scenes with video installation, fiddle, and movement.
