Counter-Productions Theatre Company Proudly Presents

“The Married Name”

A World Premiere by Kevin Broccoli

Directed by Victoria Ezikovich

Counter-Productions Theatre Company is thrilled to present its final world premiere with Kevin Broccoli’s new comedy, “The Married Name.” This biting play revolves around a soon to be married couple, Rex and Dan, and a dysfunctional dinner party with their best friends Al and Ethan.

“I’m so excited to be a part of the final Counter-Productions season,” says Broccoli, “especially with this particular play that I wrote with their company in mind. CPTC has always been the best place to go in Rhode Island for theater that goes right to the edge in terms of risk and daring while still offering downtown audiences polished acting and thoughtful productions.  The Married Name is a knock-down, sophisticated Battle Royale about friendship and modern marriage with an explosive ending that’ll have everybody talking.”

”This show features a quartet of explosive, passionate actors,” says the play’s director Victoria Ezikovich, “who have brought Kevin’s words to life with such skill, nuance, and vigor, their work is simply a joy to watch.”

“CPTC has always been known for work that leaves audiences, captivated, shaken, or inspired,” continues Ezikovich, a resident artist with the company. “It has been my great joy to come into my own as a theatre maker at CPTC, an amazing place for new and emerging artists to experience the highest level of professionalism, skill, and creativity in the heart of our art capital. I’ve had opportunities to not just hone my abilities as an actor but discover myself as a designer, director, and artist. It is an incredible honor to be directing here in CPTC’s final season.”

GOBLIN MARKET

by Polly Pen and Peggy Harmon
music by Polly Pen
adapted from the poem by Christina Rossetti

“At twilight, halted by the brook,
For the first time in my life I began to listen and look…”

Two adult sisters return to their childhood home, where they once again come face to face with the perils and fantasies of their youth. In Polly Pen and Peggy Harmon’s haunting chamber musical, adapted from Christina Rossetti’s poem, Laura and Lizzie are tempted to risk their lives, their bond, and the Victorian world they know for the mysterious offerings of the goblin market. Rich in symbolism and sensuality, Goblin Market explores the power of love and the purpose of imagination.

Awkward Sex and the City @ Black Box Theater @ AS220
Sep 20 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Portraits Portraits

Five comedians divulge their most intimate and awkward sexual and dating experiences packed into a tight 90 minute show for your viewing pleasure. Kinky, we know. Holding back no punches this gang breaks barriers about sex, relationships, and dating taboos while making you laugh hysterically. The show pairs sexual inclusion with humor swimmingly and sheds light on the awkward universal experience we all know and love (for the most part). Awkward Sex… and the City has sold out multiple venues, and received glowing reviews from The Boston Globe, Brightest Young Things, Bust Magazine, The Washington Post and more! If you ever felt weird about sex, sexting, flirting, what have you, never fret, Natalie Wall. Bobby Hankinson, Anita Flores, Karolena Theresa and Jen Keefe will make you way better about yourself, and all your life choices.

“It is a storytelling ode to the universal experience of sex as awkward, weird, silly, hot, and awesome (sometimes all at once, sometimes distinctly not).” – BUST

“If you’ve never felt like a Carrie, a Miranda, a Samantha, or a Charlotte, you’ll probably feel a kinship with the hilarious ladies of Awkward Sex… and the City.” – Washingtonian

“The voyeur within will delight.” -Refinery 29

“The show, a spinoff of her blog by the same name, asks comedians to recall those squirmy sexual encounters they’ve locked in some inner shame box, and share them with an audience. It seems like torture, but it’s more like wine-soaked catharsis for everyone involved.” – The Cut
