The New Light Theater Project presents Liza Birkenmeier’s new play, which tackles the perils of having a body in a repressed, imperialist, and moralistic world. More…
Otto is visited by an investigative podcaster who is half-pig, half-man. She also has a teenaged occult enthusiast houseguest who is making a claymation film about seventeenth century witchcraft in her kitchen. 'The Hollower' is a modern haunt-comedy exploring seventeenth century colonialism and how crowded isolation can be.
See it if Birkenmeier's feminist/anarchist dramedy is more confusing than coherent despite being well staged by Dodson & excellent lead de Courcy
Don't see it if It's rough going....brief staccato scene fragments coalesce around the bonding of a depressed love-sick lesbian & neurotic high school girl
See it if You like zany comedies & "downtown" theater (man who squeals like a pig, young girl in funky pink hot heels, fun group song from 1950s).
Don't see it if You prefer classical theater instead like Shakespeare
See it if you like adventurous, dizzying, difficult theatre, love seeing great actors challenged, have a mind that enjoys puzzles.
Don't see it if you need a tidy and clear plot that doesn't require leaps of logic and/or imagination from its audience, want a clear resolution.
See it if you need some relief from all the run-of-the-mill slice-of-life clogging NY stages lately.
Don't see it if experiment in the theater gives you hives, or you do not respond to creative messes.
See it if have friends in cast, want 2 experience what Fellowship writers write, want to experiment with your tolerance, want 2 rate experimental work
Don't see it if cannot tolerate "experimental" theatre, need 2 see relationships and causation on stage, consider "absurdism" without intent as absurd
See it if you enjoy intellectually and emotionally challenging plays with comedy and even delightful moments; Reyna de Courcy’s Bit is spot on.
Don't see it if you prefer less linear, uncomplicated plots, characters, and themes, prefer musicals and large sets/casts, can’t sit 90 min./climb 3 flights
See it if Per reviews-youll either love or hate. Weird & absorbing narrative taking place on another level! Terrifically written/acted/executed...
Don't see it if You're looking for standard fare/something easily absorbed/clear linear narrative/can't give in to the world they're offering. Excellent.
See it if you like experimental theater. There is a lot to think and talk about when leaving this production. Super refreshing!
Don't see it if you don't like experimental theater. It is confusing. It is weird. The production pushes you to think.
See it if You like thought-provoking theater, expertly staged and performed. It's haunting and beautiful and has stayed with me since I saw it.
Don't see it if You need to have shows explained to you, you're not comfortable with something different
See it if You are a fan of experimental theater that needs to be digested over multiple viewings
Don't see it if You are unwilling to take the time to reflect and think deeply about the words said during the show.
