HONKBARK! AND VITAL THEATRE COMPANY PRESENT THE COUNTRY WIFE, A VERY NAUGHTY MASTERPIECE OF WIT AND SEDUCTION

Husbands, lock up your ladies…The Country Wife is coming to town. Brought to you as a co-production between HoNkBarK! and Vital Theatre Company, William Wycherley’s ribald Restoration play will run from January 5, 2007 through January 27, 2007 at the McGinn Cazale Theatre (2162 Broadway) in NYC. Previews begin Jan. 5 for a Jan. 8 opening. The Country Wife follows notorious ladies man, Harry Horner, and his ruthless scheme for rampant seduction. By spreading the rumor of his own impotence, he is able to gain access to the so-called “virtuous” ladies of society who are all too willing to join in the fun. Meanwhile, a new husband desperately attempts to hide his naïve country bride from the predatory men of the town. When she and Horner quite literally collide, bawdiness ensues. Banned from the stage for almost 200 years, this scandalous satire is as potent today as it was in 1675. The cast features Broadway veteran Maurice Edwards (Sir Jasper Fidget), whose Broadway credits include Happy as Larry (1950), The Golden Apple (1954) and the original production of Fiddler on the Roof (1964). Robert Lehrer (Quack) may be familiar as Mr. Garret from Hope and Faith. Also featured are Brian Linden (Sparkish), a 2005 New York Innovative Theatre Award nominee and two-time Emmy Award-winner, Laura LeBleu (Lady Fidget). Director John Ficarra brings with him a background steeped in Restoration style. While earning his MFA at the Bristol Old Vic in England, he studied with master teacher Rudy Shelly, learning the intricacies of the period’s manners and movement. Owner of Combat Incorporated (www.combatinc.com), John is an accomplished fight choreographer whose past New York directing credits include A Midsummer Night’s Dream for HoNkBarK! and Vital Theatre, and Scalpel at the 2004 NY International Fringe Festival, for which he won an Award of Excellence. HoNkBarK! was created by four female friends from San Francisco who moved to NYC around the same time. After a year or so of meeting up for cocktails and to swap stories about the absurd life of a New York actor, they realized they had to create their own theatrical reality. The name HoNkBarK! comes from the sound that a newly discovered monkey, the Highland Mangabey, makes. It’s very funny and a little odd (much like the ladies of HoNkBarK!) and was adopted as both their name and artistic battle cry.

SLAMDANCE AWARD-WINNING DOCUMENTARY OPENS IN NY!

"ABDUCTION The Megumi Yokota Story" (A Slamdance 2006 World Premiere, and winner of the Audience Award for Best DOcumentary) OPENS JAN. 12TH
CINEMA VILLAGE 22 E. 12th Street FOR TICKETS CALL (212) 924-3363
A FILM BY PATTY KIM AND CHRIS SHERIDAN Executive Producer Jane Campion A safari media film in association with the bbc
" RIVETING!" - NPR "TERRIFIC!" - CNN "EXTRAORDINARY!" A WORK OF "NARRATIVE MASTERY!" - LOS ANGELES TIMES
Academy Award winning director Jane Campion of "The Piano" and the BBC present ABDUCTION, a chilling true story by DC-based filmmakers Chris Sheridan and Patty Kim.
ABDUCTION tells the astonishing story of a 13-year-old Japanese girl who never returned home from school one dark November night in 1977. Years later, her parents found out the shocking truth: she had been abducted by North Korean spies. This is the dramatic story of her parents' moving 30-year-battle to bring their daughter home. A powerful human drama, ABDUCTION points to one of today's biggest human rights and political crises in Asia. Largely unknown to Americans, the abduction issue, is one of the major untold stories behind Japan and North Korea's tense relations, a key factor affecting nuclear talks. Using the bold signature of true-crime style, rarely-seen footage and exceptional access, the filmmakers weave an extraordinary tale of espionage and love.
