OUR CURRENT PRODUCTION: ConcealHer is a one-act expressionist farce that presents a hilarious portrait of the struggles faced by women who try to measure up to an impossible standard of “beauty,” as it is defined by an industry which turns insecurities into purchases and profit. Following the high school prom, bar pick up, bedroom antics and wedding day debacle of a “typical” American girl, this play uses humor to skewer the fashion industry oppression that comes between women and their men. Arielle Parkas (Playwright/Director) has been working off-off-Broadway since 2009. Beginning as dramaturg for "In The Red Room" written by Gordon Farrell and presented by Red Productions on the Lower East Side, she went on to direct the one-act play "Prying" by Jamie Gerardi. Last spring she co-directed "Threshold: Six True Stories From Girls Who Broke The Rules." as part of the emerging Red Anthology Trilogy being developed by Red Productions in the Upstairs Cabaret at People Lounge. She is co-founder of the public health based arts program "Positive Health Theater Experience", and facilitated theater workshops at Bedford Hills Correctional Facility and viBe Theater Experience. Arielle Rothbard (Designer) worked on set design for Punchdrunk Theater’s “Sleep No More” at the Chelsea Hotel. A graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, she participated in the Pave Competition for Macy’s and the Rootstein Mannequin Competition for NADI Market Week. She has served as a design assistant at the Salt Space and Pure Luck galleries. Would you like to get involved with the design team or production? Need tickets?
