The International Fringe Encore Series Brings Back the Best of Off-Broadway


Running at the Soho Playhouse (15 Vandam Street), The International Fringe Encore Series showcases extraordinary off-Broadway shows in NYC. Many of the previous productions featured in the series have gone on to extensive Off-Broadway runs and international success.

The slate of shows includes the new play Bacon, written by Sophie Swithinbank and directed by Matthew Iliffe. Bacon is an unflinching and unexpectedly humorous look at masculinity, sexuality and power, through the dizzying lens of youth. Following a sold-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the multi-award-winning play comes to New York for 24 performances only.

It’s a Motherf**king Pleasure, from the disability led theater company FlawBored, is a look at assumptions and questions around disabilities. Usually disabled people just want to do the right thing. But what if they don’t?  What if they were out to make as much money as possible from the guilt of non-disabled, anxious people (like you)?

Jekyll & Hyde reinvents Stevenson's classic science-horror story, with award-winning performer Heather-Rose Andrews in the titular role. Class, terror, and hypocrisy in Victorian London, as the search for self collides with the lure of the sensuous, taking its toll on all around Jekyll & Hyde. A new vision of terror from award-winning writer/director JD Henshaw.

Esther’s Revenge, produced by Tope Sanni, is an experiential play inspired by true life events of Esther who was reported to have murdered her white lover in 1953. The sentence is death by hanging. This very participatory play as devised, explores themes around race, colonization, sexual abuse, violence against women, and political and social injustice. Esther takes us on a journey through time into the events leading up to the death of Mark. The Jury is given the responsibility to vote in favor or against a stay of execution.

This is just a sampling of the performances taking place during The International Fringe Encore Series
