BCA Black Box Theatre
September 30-October 9, 2012 at the Central Square Theater, Studio Theater


Compiled from interviews and live recordings during the occupation of Dewey Square in Fall 2011, NO ROOM FOR WISHING follows Occupy Boston from its formation, through clashes with the police, infighting among the activists, legal battles and collective victories, to its eviction by the City of Boston. One of Boston’s most dynamic young theater makers portrays dozens of real-life characters in this fiercely immediate, up-close-and-personal encounter with our city, our nation, and ourselves.

In war-torn Baghdad, the dead aren't quiet, in fact, they never seem to shut up! Among them stalks the ghost of a quick-witted tiger who haunts the streets, looking for meaning, forgiveness and redemption amidst the ruins. Rajiv Joseph's groundbreaking new American play ignited Broadway (starring Robin Williams) and explores the perils of human nature through bold black humor and an ethereal vision of war and after life.

Two sisters strike a dangerous bargain to flee their homeland. It costs more than money to make the passage, but The Crossing always does. When faced with a world of new shoes, intelligent phones, and forty-two ways to treat your cough, can a sister’s promise bridge the gaps of time and space? Playwright Mia Chung conjures an imaginative, and unexpectedly funny journey about defecting from North Korea to America, and back again.

BCA Plaza Theatre

After the totally-weird Tilly dies, oh-so-average Agnes doesn’t know what to make of the geekery her sister left behind. In an effort to understand the gulf between them, she embarks on a quest of Tilly’s own design, rife with hostile faeries, randy ogres, awkward high schoolers, and broadswords. Will Agnes discover her inner badass, or will the bugbears get her first? Qui Nguyen, resident playwright of Brooklyn’s Vampire Cowboys theatre, serves up a comedic nerdgasm – an homage to the outcast in all of us.

It’s 1988: Hank, Julian and Luann have each finally found the beats and dubs that make the suburbs bearable, but they need each other more than they know. Rap battles and poetry in parking lots lead to dreams of something more, as a DJ takes us to the flipside, loops us into the remix, and breaks it down. Spoken word poet and hip-hop playwright Idris Goodwin MC’s a theatrical coming-of-age mix tape about how we become the people we’re meant to be, flowing and rhyming our way to adulthood.
