APRIL 2018


Thank You for Your Home by John Alexander Hatcher

In the blistering cold Alaskan December, a few newly drafted college students and an army sergeant are stranded in a tattered house in a small town during World War 3 after the deadliest battle on U.S. soil, forever known as “The Battle for Alaska”. With limited food, water, and trust, escape from the looming threat of the Russian military seems impossible.

Directed by Ashlyn Frank, Assistant Directed by Natalia Lee

JUNE 2018


The Brick Theater, Inc. and Doghouse Ensemble Theatre present

As You Like It by William Shakespeare

Adapted and Directed by Catherine Andre

As You Like It will play The Brick (579 Metropolitan Ave at Lorimer Street, Williamsburg, Brooklyn) as part of The Festival of Lies on June 23 at 1pm, June 25 at 7pm, and July 1 at 1pm

Director Catherine Andre reimagines Shakespeare’s As You Like It to interrogate our society’s tenuous relationship to truth and reality building. Developed as part of Doghouse Ensemble Theatre’s Incubator, this dark and experimentally reimagined As You Like It examines our society’s tenuous relationship to truth and reality building. Framed around the Forest of Arden as Rosalind’s fantastical response to trauma, this production will harness the storytelling power of a predominantly female cast to interrogate this “post-truth” era and consider how we all frame the world “as we like it.”

Tickets ($20) may be purchased online at www.bricktheater.com or by calling 866-811-4111.
