In this memory play by award-winning writer Yasmine Beverly Rana, a 30-year-old woman revisits key points in her life in an effort to understand and overcome a sexually abusive past. Rana, who was born in New Orleans, sets Blood Sky along the Mississippi River, where a young teenager named Joely tries to escape life as the victim of abuse by her mother's boyfriend. Terry Schreiber directs this production, continuing the company's collaboration with Rana, whose critically acclaimed Bosnian War drama The Fallen was staged here in 2013. Learn More
Written by David Storey
Directed by Terry Schreiber
David Storey’s Tony Award-nominated play, The Changing Room, offers an intimate, revealing portrait of a Northern England semi-pro rugby league team. Set entirely in the team’s locker room over the course of one game, the documentary drama follows the working class athletes’ pre- and post-game rituals, offering a powerful view of how people relate to one another, particularly in the stressful trenches of life. When The Changing Room premiered on Broadway in 1973, The New York Times hailed it as “mysterious and ultimately mesmerizing.”
About the Ticket Supplier: T. Schreiber Studio
The T. Schreiber Studio began in 1969 with Terry Schreiber teaching classes twice a week to twelve actors in a converted loft on the Upper East Side of New York City. Enrollment increased and the group began mounting productions in what were the early beginnings of New York City’s Off-Off Broadway movement and building its reputation of high quality productions and performances. The studio continued to grow, adding more faculty, more actors, and more plays and in the mid 70’s, drama critic Walter Kerr’s glowing review in the New York Times of Schreiber’s production of The Trip Back Down, brought the Studio much attention and packed houses. The Trip Back Down then moved to Broadway and John Cullum (Northern Exposure) was signed to do the lead. Throughout the 1980’s and into the 90’s the T. Schreiber Studio continued to produce good actors and good theater, adding Betty Buckley to its prestigious faculty and residing at 83 East Fourth Street, the burgeoning street of Off-Off Broadway. During that time Terry Schreiber continued his own directing career with two more Broadway shows: Devour the Snow and K-2, and numerous regional theater productions providing more casting opportunities for studio actors.
In 1996 the Studio moved to its current, renovated multi-use space on the 7th floor of 151 West 26th Street in New York’s lively Chelsea neighborhood. Classes and productions run continuously throughout the year.
