  • A Body of Water
  • On October 24th, 2pm, at The Kraine Theater, there will be a one-day-only live presentation of Kelley Nicole Girod’s play A Body of Water, directed by Andrew Block, followed by a talkback moderated by Abigail Katz. Girod's play coincides with the 5 year anniversary of The Great Flood of Baton Rouge, a historic flood that devastated Girod's childhood home, forcing her parents to escape by boat and live in a temporary shelter for nearly a year. A Body of Water is inspired by their experience. A Body of Water is the final play in Kelley Nicole Girod’s Louisiana play cycle that pays homage to her Southern/Black/Cajun-Creole roots and brings to the stage the unique experiences of Louisiana life and history. A Body of Water tells the story of the Girod Family matriarch, Martha, who finds herself in an existential crisis as she deals with cancer recovery and a major life transition. In the midst of this, she is forced to confront a past that still haunts her when The Great Flood of Baton Rouge (2016) leaves her homeless, washing away the stability that she has worked so hard to attain after a childhood in sharecropper shacks and cotton fields. Other plays in the trilogy include This Stretch of Montpelier (7 Planet Connections Award Nominations ), and The Faith Healer (Atlantic Launch New Play Commission) This presentation is supported with funds from The City Corps Artists Grant and Sundance IDP Grant. RSVP is required for this event.**All in attendance must adhere to the COVID guidelines that apply to this show. Vaccines will be required for all audience members, staff, and performers.

  • In Their Footsteps
  • Over 50 years ago, thousands of young American women went to Vietnam to serve their country. These women's stories remain untold. In 2016, Infinite Variety Productions interviewed five of these women; Ann Kelsey (Special Services Librarian), Judy Jenkins Guadino (Special Services RecreationEmployee), Jeanne "Sam" Christie (Red Cross, Donut Dollie), Lily Adams (US Army Nurse), and Doris "Lucki" Allen (US Army Intelligence Specialist).Image created by Ran Xia**All in attendance must adhere to the COVID guidelines that apply to this show.

In Their Footsteps vividly recreates their memories - in all their glory, humor, and horror. Seamlessly weaving between the five stories, In Their Footsteps manages to portray the human side of war, creating bunkers, rooftops, military vehicles, and more through a constantly moving set composed of just five blocks.

  • Paper Kraine
  • We're back for a sixth season of new works in development! The Paper Kraine was created in 2016 to bring together works in their earliest stages, audiences, and nonprofits. Monthly, the PK team curates a new works sampler platter around a theme related to a nonprofit - all PK ticket proceeds and a passed hat go to support the work of organizations like the Ali Forney Center, UNWRA, Mentors Against Violence Prevention, and the ACLU.This season is dedicated with unending gratitude towards the team of FRIGID NY. We all know artists making great work: all they need is a space, and FRIGID's dedication to making that accessible for artists is a vital part of the New York arts ecosystem. Try something new, delicious and strange. Come for the art. Stay for the community.Paper Kraine was created on the principle that we all know writers, directors, actors, and creators who make wonderful work. All they need is a space. The Paper Kraine is committed to creating a venue for early-career artists to show humor-focused work in the spirit of adventurous discovery. We encourage risk-taking, question-asking, and the development of a supportive community of artists seeing, encouraging, and challenging each other’s work with the ultimate goal of enriching the artistic community through cross-pollination and meeting new people.Our In-House COVID Policy**All in attendance must adhere to the COVID guidelines that apply to this show.
