The award winning New Stage Theatre Company will open its new permanent home, The New Stage Performance Space, located at 36 West 106th Street, Manhattan, from March 31 to April 30 with the debut production of "Rules," a multimedia theatre piece conceived and directed by Ildiko Nemeth. The piece is based on "The Rules" by Charles L. Mee, a play from his (re)making project, derived from his popular history "The Constitutional Convention: A Sequel."
Nemeth’s “Rules” is an of-the-moment performance piece channeling the anxiety of our time. Faithful to Mee’s collage-like approach to drama, it brings together voices of the marginalized, objectified, and simply horrified to question what rules inform our reality. Who is writing them? What does it mean to fight for cohesion or unity?
