Menorah

On Monday October 24, West of 10th presented a staged reading of Menorah, a new play by Cary Gitter. In Menorah, the world's in turmoil, Israel's at war with Palestine—and in tiny River Hill, New Jersey, super-Jewish Georgia is just trying to get a big Hanukkah menorah placed next to the town Christmas tree. But with her angry son in love with a Palestinian-American girl, and a seductive Christian mayor in office, Georgia has no idea all hell's about to break loose. Menorah is a dark comedy about a clash of faiths and identities in a small American town.

american dreamers

On Monday August 8, 2016, West of 10th presented a staged reading of American Dreamers, a new play by Lia Romeo. In American Dreamers, Becca Barrington has a liberal arts degree, but now that college is over, she's back in the town where she grew up, working a dead-end job at a bookstore.  That's when she meets Alicia Velez - sexy, charismatic, and independently wealthy.  How did she get that way?  By working as an escort.  Soon Alicia has convinced Becca that she ought to try it... but when Becca's first client is her high-school teacher, it forces her to wonder whether escorting is really a viable career path.  American Dreamers explores the difficulty of finding your way as a twenty-something in twenty-first-century America.

In Karate Hottie, 16-year-old Dart falls in love with her sexy, manly 37-year-old karate instructor, but she doesn't know that she'll engage in something that promises to be way more complicated and way more wrong and way more HOT than she ever thought it could be. This play tracks the story of a young outsider chick who will do whatever it takes to get her man, eat as much Chinese food as possible, and play by her own rules ;)

ANNE BOLEYN FOR PRESIDENT OF THE CLASS OF 2014

On Sunday, April 3, 2016, West of 10th presented Gina Doherty's new play, Anne Boleyn for President of the Class of 2014, in which Anne Boleyn - one of the most famous (infamous?) women in history - is transported to an elite, cutthroat liberal arts college. Enter Henry (the Eighth) – a bro with a heart of gold and President of the all-powerful Student Council; Catherine (Queen Catherine, that is), decked out in Lily Pulitzer and carrying the Holy Bible; and Anne’s favorite ladies (in waiting), who will try to help her enforce the feminist agenda, with the hopes of eventually landing one of them in the White House. In the new millennium, will Anne’s mystical beauty, incessant drive, thirst for power, and daring lust bring her to the top of the food chain? Or will her fate remain unchanged? Doherty's play examines whether the feminist attitude of our time can do anything to save the Queen (Bee).

Disciples

On Saturday, December 5, 2015, West of 10th presented its first staged reading. Disciples is a new play by Matt Newberg that debuted at Clark University and received its New York premiere with West of 10th. It tells the story of David and Eve, a young couple caught between faith and reality.
