The TEAM Book Release Party
Jan 31, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm| Free
Join the TEAM for a reading and performance of excerpts from their new collection Five Plays by the TEAM.
Once described as “Gertrude Stein meets MTV,” the TEAM is one of New York’s most exciting and thought-provoking theatre ensemble. This new book celebrates their 10th anniversary and documents the first five plays created, produced and performed by this internationally acclaimed company.
As part of a quest to explore the American psyche, the TEAM has enlisted everyone from Elvis Presley to Scarlett O’Hara to Bobby Kennedy to perform in kaleidoscopic stage work that the New York Times has called “intellectually playful.” This collection brings together four of the company’s previously unpublished plays: Give Up! Start Over! (In the darkest of times I look to Richard Nixon for hope); A Thousand Natural Shocks;Particularly in the Heartland and Architecting; along with their acclaimed musical Mission Drift, most recently seen in London at the National Theatre’s Shed space.
Five Plays by the TEAM includes a timeline of events, exclusive production and rehearsal images, personal introductions to the plays by members of the company, and a foreword by John Tiffany (Blackwatch, Once).
