Natasha and the Coat - A WORLD PREMIERE by critically acclaimed playwright Deborah Stein 

A hipster girl. An Orthodox guy. (And one fabulous fur coat!)

Natasha has just begun a fashion internship in an atelier in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. When she clumsily spills coffee on a vintage fur coat, she takes it to a dry cleaner where the work of Yossi, an Hasidic Jew, results in beautiful restoration. As Natasha, eager to please her unknowing boss, brings more and more items for cleaning, the very different lives of these two 20-somethings intersect, opening up possibilities for what their futures may hold. Join MJTC for the world premiere of a poignant play about independence, self-exploration, and defining your dreams.

Presented by Savage Umbrella
  • Drama
  • Comedy

Inspired by the Scandinavian Volsunga Saga, WOLF SONG explores themes of supernatural power, divided loyalty, and revenge. Audiences might recognize elements of this epic story from Wagner's RING CYCLE, Ibsen's THE VIKINGS AT HELGELAND, and Tolkien's LORD OF THE RINGS, but Savage Umbrella turns the tale on its head... and hands it over to the women. Join us for a story of fate, fire, strange magic, and poison words.​

Featuring: Morgen Chang, Emily DussaultFoster JohnsLaura LefflerAntonia PerezEli PurdomNick Wolf

Conceived by Megan Clark
Directed by Megan Clark and Alana Horton
Produced by Hannah K. Holman
Created with Savage Umbrella and the ensembles

WHAT IS A WORKSHOP PRESENTATION?
Savage Umbrella believes the audience (that’s you!) is a vital part of the creation process. That’s why we invite you into the messy parts, the unfinished work. Together, we are so much more, and we can create art that reflects pieces of ourselves: our joys, our fears, our stories. After the work-in-progress showing, we invite you to lend your voice to the new play making process through our signature audience conversations.

All audience members are invited to participate in the conversation, or just listen and write down thoughts on the surveys we provide! If post-show conversations aren't your thing... that's okay, too! We welcome feedback in whatever way is most comfortable to you.
