the october crisis at this year’s FringeNYC

Co-Artistic Directors Scott Ebersold and Alejandro Morales are following up their previous collaborations on expat/inferno (winner Best Overall Production at the 2003 New York International Fringe Festival) and the silent concerto (winner Best Director and Best Set Design 2005 New York International Fringe Festival and Best Actress at the Innovative Theater Awards) with the october crisis (to laura) at this year’s New York International Fringe Festival.

Inspired by Gene Tierney’s turn in the film Laura, the theme song to the film and the sonnets of Petrarch, the october crisis tells the story of Marguerite Stone, a sultry, but steely, torch singer who launched her career after making a painful personal choice.  On the eve of the Cuban Missile Crisis, when the world could change any second, she is faced with the consequences of that choice.  A play about longing, regret and intimacy, the october crisis continues Packawallop’s exploration of identity by using the metaphor of performance.  

Stay tuned for more details!

Packawallop is an artistic home for artists who want to create new productions via a rigorous aesthetic investigation of the media of theater and film. It is also a home for audiences who wish to explore these issues in exciting and surprising ways. Both the artists and audiences involved with the work will make discoveries about themselves and the world around them as a result. We consider our audience as part of our collaborative community and we treat each show as an extended cocktail party.
