Necessary Targets

Written by Eve Ensler

Directed by Bryan Austin

Two American women, a Park Avenue psychiatrist and an ambitious young writer, travel to Bosnia to help women refugees confront their memories of war. Though the two have little in common beyond the methods they use to distance themselves from their subjects, they emerge deeply changed as they confront their own fears in the face of violence, resiliency and war. Based on interviews conducted by Eve Ensler with numerous women who survived the civil war in the former Yugoslavia, Necessary Targests is a timely reminder of how America struggles to define its relationship to the rest of the world.

Eve Ensler is best know for her play the Vagina Monolgues.

Caesar's Blood

Written by Rich Rubin

Directed by Ed Whitacre

It is late November 1864. The Civil War is still raging, and President Abraham Lincoln has just been re-elected. At New York's Winter Garden Theatre, the elite of Manhattan have gathered to watch a one-evening-only benefit performance of "Julius Caesar" starring the three most celebrated actors in America, the iconic Booth brothers -- Edwin, Junius Brutus and John Wilkes. Until this evening, the Booths, all greatly admired by the theater-loving President, had never appeared together on the same stage. John, heralded in the tabloids as "the handsomest man in America" is a fervent believer in the Confederate cause, and had already been arrested for his seditious comments about the President and the North. His older brothers Edwin and Junius Brutus, meanwhile, are ardent supporters of Lincoln and the Union. Both before and after the performance of Shakespeare's bloody tragedy, the three brothers spar about politics, theater and the roots of their heated sibling rivalry. The brothers' drama is heightened by the appearance on scene of their mother Mary Ann (whose favorite was always "Johnny") and Benjamin Waters, Edwin's dresser and a former slave, now a free man. A play based, as the saying goes, on true events.

Rich Rubin's plays have been produced throughout the U.S., and internationally in Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and Mexico. Rich's work has been nominated for the L. Arnold Weissberger Award (Williamstown Theatre Festival), , the Neil Simon Festival New Play Contest and the Long Beach Playhouse New Works Festival.
