The Flea Theater kicks off its Fall 2013 Season with the New York Premiere of Jonathan Caren's THE RECOMMENDATION - a play about class, race, power and what happens to a friendship when the tables get turned. The 2012 production at The Old Globe in San Diego won the Craig Noel Outstanding New Play Award. Helmed by Flea Resident Director Kel Haney and featuring The Bats, the resident acting company at The Flea, this production plays August 23 - September 22, Wednesday – Sunday at 7pm with press opening on September 6. Tickets are $15 - $35. Next up, The Riot Group’s Adriano Shaplin joins The Bats in a radical re-telling of the events leading up to the Salem Witch Trials, SARAH FLOOD IN SALEM MASS. Blood feuds, black magic, and the birth of capitalism merge in this dizzying portrait of a village on the brink. Directed by Applied Mechanics’ Rebecca Wright, it runs September 24 - October 27, Tuesday – Saturday at 7pm, Sunday at 3pm with press opening October 6. Tickets $15 - $50.
