Off-Broadway's The Tank will stage four world premieres for its winter and spring 2023 season, beginning with previews January 6, 2023 for Song of Joy by playwright-actor Carol Mazhuvancheril (The Inheritance). The four plays comprise the Core Production series which helps emerging artists create new works.
Nick J. Brown (Chair) will direct Song of Joy, an exploration of the meaning of home through Mazhuvancheril's experiences immigrating throughout childhood. It will open January 7 and continue through January 29. Also beginning performances in January, When We Went Electronic's Caitlin Saylor Stephens' Modern Swimwear will start previews January 19 and open January 20. Directing the work about the life and murder of swimwear designer Sylvie Cachay will be Meghan Finn (Simon and His Shoes) with dramaturgy by Amauta Marston-Firmino (Slave Play). Performances are set through February 12.
Come springtime, The Tank will stage sleeper by Morgaine Gooding-Silverwood (Cradle Two Grave) starting March 2 for a limited run through March 26. Opening night for the play, which speaks to burnout and how we grapple with sleep, is set for March 3. Rounding out the line-up is a comedy about classism and chosen family titled Rough Trade by Kev Berry (Harsh Cacophonies I & II) and directed by Alex Tobey (Harsh Cacophonies I & II). The limited run begins previews March 17 and opens March 18, with performances set through April 8.
