The Waverly Gallery

Black Curtain Readers' Theatre

September 26,27  7:30

Once a vibrant lawyer, Greenwich Village activist and family matriarch Gladys Green has run a charming boutique art gallery on Waverly Place for decades. But management wants to replace her less-than-thriving gallery with a coffee shop, at the same time that feisty Gladys’s world is shrinking through loss of memory and hearing. Finalist for the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Kenneth Lonergan’s (Manchester By The Sea) powerful story, called “wrenchingly beautiful” by The Wall Street Journal, sheds a lasting and humorous light on how Gladys's family struggles to cope with her fading faculties while quietly challenging us to examine how we look after each other.

SYLVIA by A.R.Gurney (Preview)

A ‘howlingly’ funny play about A Man, A Dog, and A Midlife Crisis


Greg and Kate have recently moved to New York City from the ‘burbs after becoming empty nesters. During a walk in Central Park, Greg, who’s suffering through a mid-life crisis, discovers a dog with a heart-shaped tag that reads simply "Sylvia” and becomes hopelessly smitten. Greg brings home the perky pooch – hilariously played by a real-life actor who brings Sylvia’s every thought to life - only to find that Kate does not want a dog, let alone one that jumps, slobbers, chews up books and is clearly competing for Greg's affections. Called a “beautiful, funny, touching and profound play”, Sylvia is a modern romantic comedy about unconditional love, the need for connection, and how a dog may be just the ticket to save a marriage.

Radiant Vermin by Philip Ridley

     Black Curtain Readers' Theatre

November 7 & 8, 2020

Jill is expecting her first baby and she and her husband Ollie are desperate to find a home of their own for their new family. When a mysterious stranger offers the young couple an ideal house, it prompts the question: at a time of crisis in the housing market, how far would you be prepared to compromise your principals to secure a home for you and your family? Be prepared to be appalled at yourself for laughing aloud at the horrors revealed in Radiant Vermin, a wickedly funny, pitch-black satire about consumerism, gentrification, and inequality. Says the New York Times, “like a Brothers Grimm story, Radiant Vermin is executed with its own consistent fantasy logic, deployed to remind us of the dangers of getting what we wish for.”

With razor-sharp wit and extraordinary insight, Our Mother’s Brief Affair considers the sweeping, surprising impact of indiscretions both large and small. Says The New York Times, Our Mother’s Brief Affair is a “sort of everyday detective story”, illuminating “how little we know about the lives that impinge upon and shape our own.”
