News: Summerworks 2019 at the wild project Now Through June 29


Clubbed Thumb's Summerworks 2019 continues  now through June 29, 2019 at the wild project (195 E. 3rd Street, between Avenues A & B, Manhattan, NYC), an eco-friendly theater, film, music, and visual arts venue that presents diverse, engaging, inspiring, and entertaining works to the vibrant and growing community of Alphabet City in New York’s East Village, while bringing together the artists and the environment in a unique way. With Sarah Einspanier's Lunch Brunch having concluded on May 28, the next two shows up in the festival are Zhu Yi's You Never Touched the Dirt from June 3-13 and Daniel Glenn's King Philip's Head is Still on that Pike Just Down the Road from June 19-29.  These shows will be followed in July by a pair of festivals.
 
YOU NEVER TOUCHED THE DIRT 
Written by Zhu Yi
Directed by Ken Rus Schmoll
With Holly Chou, John D. Haggerty, Daniel K. Isaac, Kenneth Lee, Jennifer Lim, and Julyana Soelistyo
June 3-June 13

The Li family would be enjoying their new lake-view luxury villa outside of the city, were they not surrounded by the gardeners, maids, and security guards who had once owned the land…not to mention the Gods, ghosts, and unnamed spirits there for thousands of years before them. A play about economic transformation, the dreams it enables, and those it crushes.

KING PHILIP’S HEAD IS STILL ON THAT PIKE JUST DOWN THE ROAD 
Written by Daniel Glenn
Directed by Caitlin Ryan O’Connell
With Rachel Christopher, Crystal Finn, Jennifer Ikeda, Elizabeth Kenny, Layla Khosh, Mary Lou Rosato, Zuzanna Szadkowski, and Sam Breslin Wright
June 19-29

The councilmen of Plymouth Plantation fight about what the Good Life is–all the while displaying the head of Wampanoag leader Metacom on a spike. A play about government, mercy, vengeance and America’s original sin.

The Box Office opens one hour prior to curtain.

General admission tickets are $25, and student tickets are $20. Tickets can be purchased online at www.thewildproject.org.

Following Summerworks 2019, the wild project will host the Pas de Deux and Fresh Fruit festivals from July 4th through 6th and 8th through 21st, respectively.
