JACK - BROOKLYN , NY
Award-winning theater company Adjusted Realists is proud to announce the New York premiere of Chickens in the
Yardthis summer at Brooklyn’s JACK, located in the heart of Clinton Hill.
In a rural home outside of Pittsburgh, a gay couple feels its future tugged in opposing directions by career prospects
and family tensions. But Chickens in the Yard , Paul Kruse’s lyrical play that premiered at Quantum Theatre in 2015, is
no conventional domestic drama. Echoing every emotional beat in this gently expansive work are the lives of the
farm’s chickens, intense, inscrutable, and sneakily as human as their human counterparts. As the spotlight shifts
between man and fowl, Chickens in the Yardscratches at the thin skin of contemporary relationships, with parallel
creatures yearning for love and normalcy in a deeply abnormal world.
Starring Maggie Low, Roger Manix, and Jeremiah Maestas and directed by Will Taylor, Chickens in the Yardpromises
to be one of Clinton Hill’s top cultural attractions this summer.

Memoriam: After Euripides' Alcestis is a timely and singular odyssey through the politics of identity, feminism, and isolation. This lyrical #herstory promises to be one of the most haunting entries of this year's New York International Fringe Festival.
It's one of our eternally futile longings: to bring the love of your life back from the dead. But what if the impossible were actually possible? What if the ultimate miracle happened? What if, laws of the cosmos be damned, she really came back?
Such is the case in Memoriam, an inventive, multidisciplinary snapshot of the aftermath of a miracle. Inspired by an ancient Greek myth and millennia of wishful thinking, playwright Stephen Kaliski (West Lethargy, Gluten!) reunites a dead queen with her grieving king and then asks, "Is she really back?" What follows is a whirling journey through the looking glass of loss, memory, and the uncertain ownership we have over our own lives.
Memoriam is directed by Elizabeth Ostler and co-produced by Hypnic Theatre Company and Adjusted Realists, recipients of a 2016 Off Broadway Angels grant and creators of Gluten! at 59E59 Theaters and the acclaimed revival of Nicky Silver's Pterodactyls at Teatro Circulo.

Adjusted Realists presents
By STEPHEN KALISKI
Directed by STEPHEN KALISKI and AMANDA HOLSTON
In Stephen Kaliski's jubilantly foul, gently futuristic Gluten!, newlyweds Copious Fairchild and Hibiscus Van der Waal are doing everything they can to conceive a child. They've moved into a new abode. They're seeing the best doctors. They're even trying sex the new way, to no avail. When Copious' estranged mother pays a visit with a radically new-age proposition, the couple must confront all the demonic glutens they'd tried so hard to eliminate.
Following up on their critically acclaimed revival of Nicky Silver's Pterodactyls, The Adjusted Realists deliver a crackling new comedy about the latest threat to an America desperate for spiritual (and digestive) freedom.
