Unpacking: A Ghost Story Told in the Dark - Poster

“Unpacking” at HERE – Interview with Playwrights Marina and Nicco

Comedy writing team Marina Tempelsman and Niccolo Aeed’s new show Unpacking: A Ghost Story Told in the Dark opens its run at HERE tonight at 7:00 PM. I was a huge fan of last year’s Room 4, which also featured Unpacking star Temesgen Tocruray, and I couldn’t wait to see what was next from this hilarious and insightful writing team. Before opening night, I sat down with Marina and Nicco to discuss the show’s novel lighting design, developing an on-stage romance, and what scares them off-stage in the real world.

You On The Moors Now

Theater Reconstruction Ensemble’s YOU ON THE MOORS NOW – Review

You On The Moors Now, which opened February 13 at HERE, is my favorite kind of weird theater. The play is a deconstruction of four of literature’s most famous women, Jane Eyre from Jane Eyre, Jo March from Little Women, Elizabeth Bennett from Pride and Prejudice, and Catherine Earnshaw from Wuthering Heights. In the process, though, it brings on a full-blown battle of the sexes and breaks down harmful character types for men and women.
