Brooklyn College Play Festival:
BRING A WEASEL AND A PINT OF YOUR OWN BLOOD

Shiva Theater

July 14 - July 21

All performances are free with a ticket reservation.*

*Tickets must be picked up 30 minutes before the performance. If you wish to attend a sold-out performance, you can add your name to the standby line in person at the box office in the lobby of The Public Theater starting at 2PM on the day of the performance.

The Public Theater hosts the 12th annual Bring A Weasel and A Pint of Your Own Blood Festival, presented by the Brooklyn College Theater Program. This year, the four plays featured in this festival are all adaptations of a common source material: Hieronymus Bosch’s triptych painting The Garden of Earthly Delights. Brooklyn College playwrights, directors, designers, and actors collaborate on these explosive experiments in form.

WOOD CALLS OUT TO WOOD

Wood Calls Out to Wood is a painting translated into a play, a landscape turned into a soundscape. It is a precise and deeply silly experiment in the possibilities of combination--of single syllables combining to make words and single people combining to make couples. The audience first encounters the play as they would a picture hanging on a distant wall, in large swaths of color and pattern. When taking a closer look, however, strange Boschian beings begin to emerge: Two horses in a neigh-scent relationship, a vacant treehouse in need of a tenant, and a man with a grape for a head. 


DON'T EAT CHERRIES WITH KINGS

This Boschian etude is a love poem for an ailing friend - Reality - who is always asking questions like, "Do I even matter anymore?" With their ear for deconstructed cacophony, the post-pop band Ensemble Doom plays the hits while pathological lying is normalized onstage before your very eyes. Tortured musicians torture everyone around them in this garden of generation xyz disquietude.

THE FALL OF ALL ATOMIC ANGELS

Sound Design by Joseph Wolfslau


A bunch of nuclear bombs or maybe angels just fell out of the sky and the world is probably ending, but Skylar isn’t too concerned. After all, they’ve just found the coolest club you’ve never heard of, frequented by all kinds of cool-ass cripples like Skylar. Oh, and there’s Lucy. Lucy has wings, and the best drugs this side of paradise. As Skylar struggles to keep the party going, it becomes apparent that some dreams are addictive, that it's oh-so-easy to overdose on a feeling, and that not all angels have the best of intentions.


THE STRIPPERERS
Written by Eryk Aughenbaugh

Sound Design by Joseph Wolfslau


In this polyphonic comedy, three young tobacco strippers discover a mysterious painting—but they don't know what it means. As they decode the painting, they unravel an alternate world in which gender is fluid, state affairs are conducted on horseback, and people gather poolside for daily entertainments.
