TO HOST COLT COEUR’S 3RD ANNUAL
CELEBRATION OF PLAY-MAKING WORKSHOP

WITH BROOKLYN TEENAGERS

AT ST. ANN’S WAREHOUSE

FRIDAY, MARCH 29TH AT 6:30PM

Celia Keenan-Bolger (PETER AND THE STARCATCHER) and Julia Jones  (TWILIGHT films) will join Adrienne Campbell-Holt (RECALL, FISH EYE), Matt Stadelmann (SEVEN MINUTES IN HEAVEN) and other Colt Coeur company members in a performance of new plays by Brooklyn students ages 10 to 16. The event is the culmination of Colt Coeur’s week-long theatre intensive offered free-of-charge to public school students. The evening will take place at St. Ann’s Warehouse at 29 Jay Street in DUMBO, Brooklyn and will begin with a reception at 6:30pm, followed by a 7pm performance. The event is free and open to the public.

Colt Coeur, an artists’ ensemble, collaboratively creates theater from the ground up. Founded in 2010, Colt Coeur has created and produced 3 world-premieres: Seven Minutes in Heaven, together as a company with playwright Steven Levenson; Fish Eye, with playwright Lucas Kavner, and Recall, by Eliza Clark.

Colt Coeur mission:
We contemplate questions that inspire us and devise theatrical pieces which respond to and engage with the world in which we live.  We address the ambivalence, terror and exhilaration of our age on the scale of person-to-person and moment-to-moment through theater that utilizes a simplicity of means to achieve richness of expression. We strive to create great happenings in small rooms, theater as close as a whisper in your ear or a stranger’s hand brushing yours. Intimacy is our way in.

Educational programming is personal for us, because we also attended under resourced urban schools and free community arts programs were our lifeline.  From our free workshops to our full scale productions offered at low-ticket prices, we nurture the next generation of theater artists and attract diverse audiences. We forge an ongoing community dialogue through our Play Hotel series of workshops, open rehearsals, & free readings.

COLT COEUR TO READ NIKOLE BECKWITH’S

EVERYTHING IS OURS

MONDAY, MARCH 18TH AT 7:15PM

 

Dorothy Berwin and Colt Coeur’s Play Hotel reading series will present an industry reading of Nikole Beckwith’s Everything is Ours on Monday, March 18th at 7:15pm at 115 W. 45th Street (11th Floor) in Manhattan.  Directed by Adrienne Campbell-Holt (Recall, Fish EyeSeven Minutes in Heaven), the cast includes Molly Bernard (The Philadelphia Story, Chautauqua), Melody Butiu (Here Lies Love, Public), Katya Campbell (The Big Knife, Broadway), W. Tre Davis, Adam Harrington (HIT-LIT, Queens Theater), Rachel Resheff (The Big Meal, Playwrights Horizons), Kate Roberts (Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Broadway), and Joe Tippett (Fish Eye, Seven Minutes in Heaven, Colt Coeur).

Everything is Ours
 is an ultra-contemporary upstairs-downstairs comedy of manners— Wes Anderson meets Christopher Durang… It is also a love story that deals with how people, especially women, are defined by having or not having children. And it is uproariously funny.

Colt Coeur, an artists’ ensemble, collaboratively creates theater from the ground up.  Founded in 2010, Colt Coeur has created and produced 3 world-premieres: Seven Minutes in Heaven, together as a company with playwright Steven Levenson; Fish Eye, with playwright Lucas Kavner, and Recall, by Eliza Clark.

COLT COEUR TO READ JUSTIN KURITZKE’S

SENSUALITY PARTY

MONDAY, JANUARY 14TH AT 7PM

 

Colt Coeur’s Play Hotel reading series will present a site-specific staged reading of Justin Kuritzke’s Sensuality Party on Monday, January 14th at 7pm at a private residence in Tribeca.  Directed by Adrienne Campbell-Holt (Recall, Fish EyeSeven Minutes in Heaven), the cast includes Lily Garrison (A Thought In Three Parts), Louisa Krause (The Flick), Drigan Lee (Six Degrees of Separation), Gayle Rankin (TRIBES), Cameron Scoggins (The Big Meal), and Matt Stadelmann (Seven Minutes in Heaven).

 

 The Sensuality Party explores the ramifications of an orgy between a small group of friends on a college campus. A night that begins somewhere between a dare and a lark moves quickly from indulgence to danger to irreversible consequence. With a nod to the events of September 11th and the Occupy Movement, The Sensuality Party takes a blunt look at our culture’s obsession with pleasure, pain and the blurry spaces in between. 


Colt Coeur (Recall, Fish Eye, Seven Minutes in Heaven) is a NY-based ensemble of actors, designers, playwrights and directors dedicated to making original, story-driven, aggressively visceral theater.  Play Hotel is Colt Coeur’s ongoing reading series, and their principal arena for developing new work.  They are currently developing projects with Eliza Clark, Matt Friedberger, Max Posner, Steven Levenson, and Caleb Scott.

National Playwriting Competition (Autobiography), the California Young Playwrights Contest (Hawaii), and the Blank Theater Company Young Playwrights Festival (Death and Taxes). He is a member of The Collectin, a Los Angeles/New York based company of writers, directors, and actors with whom he has directed his plays The Sensuality Party and As the Boat Approaches. His play Growth was a semi-finalist for the National Playwrights Conference at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center in 2011. A collection of his short plays, Trivia About Unimportant People and Other Plays, was presented at the 45th Street Theater and An Autobiography About My Brother was recently published in the University of New Orleans’ Bayou Magazine. A graduate of Brown University, Justin earned his B.A. in both Philosophy and Literary Arts and studied playwriting with Gregory Moss, Lisa D’Amour, and Erik Ehn. In addition to writing and directing plays, he also acts and performs improv. Justin was born in Los Angeles and currently lives in Brooklyn.

Jun 15, 2012

Critics are raving about RECALL!


The New York Times says RECALL “deftly balances the humdrum and the horrific” and compares Eliza to Martin McDonough and Tarantino… 

BACKSTAGE (Critic’s Pick) says, “In the vein of George Orwell and Aldous Huxley, Clark’s play is very topical in our world of bullying and The Hunger Games… Colt Coeur continues its streak of grade-A downtown productions.” 

Time Out New York (Critic’s Pick) reports, “Directed by Colt Coeur’s Adrienne Campbell-Holt with special sensitivity to degrees of abnormality, and performed by a bang-up cast, Clark’s thriller deploys clean naturalism in the service of a story that turns out to have Philip K. Dick on the brain.”

Theatermania says “Eliza Clark’s terribly intense and vividly imagined new play Recall, now at The Wild Project, is, unlike too much theatrical fare, not easily forgotten…Director Adrienne Campbell-Holt handles this rich terrain with aplomb and is aided by John McDermott’s simple yet evocative set and Grant Yeager’s astute lighting that brings each scene into focus. The stage may be small at Wild Project, but Clark and her collaborators have created a big world.
