"The infectious high spirits that this company brings are downright inspirational.” - NYTheater.com
The Upper Room is a new play with original music inspired by the back-to-the-land movement. Set on an island way off the north coast of Maine, the last participants of a once thriving commune meet the sea. Anxious and restless, the quorum gathers around the table in their upper room to confront the rising water and certain members’ curious ailments. A darkly humorous consideration of spirituality and the dangers of our changing environment combines with a live mixed score, antique scuba suits and an overhead projector to create a brand new music theater event.
Running time: 90 minutes, no intermission
Featuring: Catherine Brookman*, Tjasa Ferme, Dana Kaplan-Angle, Govind Kumar, Robert Gadol Lavenstein, Joyce Miller, Stacy Ayn Price, Julia Sirna-Frest*, Heather Thiry, featuring Joe White (guitar)

Set in the skeleton of a pink hurricane-torn house a band of dogs walk around of the inside and try to make sense of humankind's need for comfort as they read letters from the audience asking for solace An ensemble of musicians and live dogs will howl, scotch and poop their way through an evening as the inadvertently ask the question: Who nurtures the nurturer?

In Half Straddle’s Kitchen debut, writer/director Tina Satter merges teen movie influences from the late 80s, a live mixed score, and video landscape to create a brand new coming of age narrative. A teacher leads three students away from society. When they start an alternative TV station in the woods and meet a young witch who alters the group dynamic, their fragile new family begins to fray. Seventeenth-century captivity narratives, adolescent letters of Emily Dickinson, the teen movies, and more infect this darkly humorous consideration of how we make meaning for ourselves and our communities.
January 7-10 and 14–17, 8pm

Here is a bit about the show:
WORLD PREMIERE AT THE KITCHEN, NEW YORK CITY * JANUARY 2015
Half Straddle’s seventh full-length work, ANCIENT LIVES is a play about coming of age and self-creation. A teacher leads three students away from society. As they start an alternative TV station in the woods and meet a young witch who alters the group dynamic, their fragile new family begins to fray. With an original choral score; video landscape to create the strange forest hideout; and at once humorous and poignant narrative, the ensemble delves into the contemporary American reality of how we make meaning for ourselves and our communities.
Being developed in a residency at THE KITCHEN.
Written and Directed by Tina Satter
