And now, for something totally different…
Presidents Day? No thank you. Let’s hear it for the Queens. Lab/Shul presents ComPassion Plays, our first annual performance festival and renegade ritual riot taking on the Book of Esther. Off book. One night only.
Lab/Shul let loose 10 of New York’s wildest writers, performers, poets, musicians and creative rebels to create new original shorts inspired by a single quote and an epic act of resistance from the Purim scroll:
“Then I’ll go to the king, though it’s illegal. If I perish, I perish.” (4:16)
Underground arts. Dance Floor. Cash Bar. Costumes. 21+
Seats are limited, so definitely don’t wait to buy your tickets!
Less patriarchy, more comPassion.
