Out of Place & Time, Vol. 2, is an anthology of plays by six members of the Women's Project Lab. It's a snapshot of some of the most ambitious work incubating in New York and a diverse compilation of plays for directors and actors seeking exciting contemporary work to explore. With a hilarious and biting intro by Theresa Rebeck that challenges the American theater to celebrate and produce its women playwrights, Vol. 2 showcases writers whose voices sing our world with wit, passion and daring. Bekah Brunsetter's Le Fou teases out the destructive dance between love and vanity. Kara Manning's Sleeping Rough forms a blues ballad for souls displaced between lives. Alexis Clements' Conversation cleverly interrogates the science of speech, while Nadia Davids' At Her Feet plays out another kind of linguistic music, that of six very different Muslim women from Cape Town. Carla Ching's TBA plays with the power of naming, and Andrea Thome's Undone offers a polyphonic love poem to a city crowded with the living and dead.
