AIN'T NO MO'

AIN'T NO MO'

Sunday, April 28

AIN’T NO MO’ is a vibrant satirical odyssey portraying the great exodus of black Americans out of a country plagued with injustice.

In a kaleidoscope of scenes of the moments before, during, and after this outrageous departure, Jordan E. Cooper’s masterful new work explores the value of black lives in a country hurtling away from the promise of a black president.

Stevie Walker-Webb directs this wildly imaginative and emotionally charged new play.

Following her critically-acclaimed trilogy FATHER COMES HOME FROM THE WARS (PARTS 1, 2 & 3), Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Suzan-Lori Parks (Topdog/UnderdogIn The Blood) returns with a world premiere play about race, friendship, and our rapidly unraveling social contract.

Long-time friends and lovers Leo, Misha, Ralph, and Dawn are educated, progressive, cosmopolitan, and woke. But when a racially motivated incident with the cops leaves Leo shaken, he decides extreme measures must be taken for self-preservation.

The Public’s Artistic Director, Oskar Eustis (Julius Caesar, Public Works Twelfth Night), directs this fierce new drama about what happens when the unspoken and the unspeakable come head-to-head.


SOCRATES

SOCRATES

Sunday, April 28

SOCRATES is a witty and endlessly fascinating new drama about a complicated man who changed how the world thought.

This powerful new play by actor, director, and writer Tim Blake Nelson (O Brother, Where Art Thou?Holes, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs) is an intellectual thrill ride from the philosopher’s growing prominence in democratic Athens through the military and social upheavals that led to one of the most infamous executions in Western history.

Tony Award winner Doug Hughes (DoubtJunk) directs SOCRATES, a timely and timeless new work that serves as a passionate tribute to the man who continues to inspire us to question authority and defend freedom of belief.

There, despite the unforgiving landscape, she has tried her best to make a home for her daughter, Miranda. When Prospero conjures a powerful storm to sink her brother’s ship, she must decide how to deal with him and his confederates, who have washed ashore. How will she exact her long awaited revenge? How do you satiate a desire for justice? Director of Public Works Laurie Woolery directs this Mobile Unit production that journeys across the five boroughs and The Public’s Astor Place home.

Tony Award winner Doug Hughes (DoubtJunk) directs SOCRATES, a timely and timeless new work that serves as a passionate tribute to the man who continues to inspire us to question authority and defend freedom of belief.

Civic Salon: OUR STORIES, OUR POWER

Civic Salon: OUR STORIES, OUR POWER

Sunday, May 19

The art of storytelling offers the chance to change a mind, to save a life, to expand horizons. Whether inside a theater or out in your community, a powerful story can build empathy and understanding, and help our communities emerge renewed and reinvigorated. Join keynote speaker Jessica Blank (creator of The Exonerated) and more for an exploration of the power of storytelling and how you can be empowered to share your own story – you never know who might need to hear it.

In a climate of divisiveness and seclusion, Public Forum is opening its doors to invite audiences to join us every month for Civic Salons: a monthly gathering where we can come together in the spirit of community to nurture our minds and our bodies. Each month will feature a different theme and different participants who will bring readings, songs, and a keynote address— all chosen in the hopes of inspiring civic engagement and social change. Joe’s Pub will offer a full brunch menu available for purchase.

Tony Award winner Kenny Leon (American Son, A Raisin in the Sun) directs a bold new take on Shakespeare’s cherished comedy of romantic retribution and miscommunication, MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING. In this modern production, we find the community of Messina celebrating a break from an ongoing war. But not all is peaceful amid the revelry, as old rivals engage in a battle of wits, unexpected foes plot revenge, and young lovers are caught in a tumultuous courtship – until love proves the ultimate trickster, and undoes them all.
