The Elif Collective presents as part of the FireWorks development lab
By Dom Martello
Directed by Will Blumberg
SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 30th 7PM @ BRICK AUX WILLIAMSBURG
628 Metropolitan Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11211
Free admission with $10 suggested donation
A punk horror play that exorcizes the demons lurking in everyday shadows. It follows Gem, a late-20-something drummer on the precipice of stardom, and their encounter with Tim, a middle-aged, middle-school science teacher. The night becomes darker as they tend to each other's wounds while unearthing the power of the past.
From the rehearsal room
Meet the playwright
Dom Martello is a playwright, performer, dramaturg, and artistic consultant based in NYC. Their writing centers on trans and queer experiences, exploring the complexity of inter-community dynamics through genre and structure, and can be found on their NPX page. Their work has been developed by Syracuse University, We Who Wander, and are currently participating in The Strides Collective’s Emerging Playwright Program. The intersection of joy, activism, and art is the central tenet of their practice. They wish to help build a world where theater isn’t viewed as a luxury but rather as a civic utility that has the power to bring about a better future.
