Mrs. Mayfield's Fifth-Grade Class of '93 20-Year Reunion (working title)
an immersive party play
Written by Mariah MacCarthy in collaboration with the cast and Leta Tremblay
MAY 31-JUNE 16 @ an Astoria Apartment.
In this production by NYIT Award-nominated Caps Lock Theatre, nytheatre.com 2012 "Person of the Year" Mariah MacCarthy reunites with director Leta Tremblay (Caps Lock's The Foreplay Play) on their second site-specific production together, this time at an Astoria apartment. Mrs. Mayfield is part play, part party, in which a group of former classmates (now all pushing thirty) reunite for a night of drinks and nostalgia. As people revert to their more childish sides, Lord of the Flies-style, what follows is a battle for affection, power, and ownership of memories. Also: nineties music!
Audience members will be fellow guests at the party, with the freedom to wander the space (Sleep No More-style), and have complete control over how interactive the experience is for them: a red nametag means, "Don't talk to me," while a green nametag indicates, "Yes, interact with me."
The project will play at an undisclosed location in Astoria, near the Ditmars Blvd. N/Q subway stop. Audience members will receive the location upon purchasing their ticket. Performances are Friday May 31-Sunday June 2, Thursday June 6-Sunday June 9, and Wednesday June 12-Sunday June 16. All performances are at 8pm.
The cast includes Lindsey Austen (The Foreplay Play with Caps Lock), J. Stephen Brantley (Jackson Heights Trilogy with theatre167), Scott Rad Brown (Created Equal with Red Fern Theatre), Brian Dunlop (Outfoxed with FullStop Collective), Jesse Geguzis (Romeo & Juliet: Forbidden Love at Common Ground Theatre), Lauren Hennessy ("Outstanding Performance" for Ampersand: A Romeo & Juliet Story, FringeNYC), Nicki Miller (THE INTERNET with Everywhere Theatre Group), Elizabeth Seldin (Unville Brazil with FullStop Collective), and Jordan Tierney (The All-American Genderf*ck Cabaret with Purple Rep). Production is assistant directed by Trent Anderson.
Location will be sent upon ticket purchase. (View)
