“The actors are uniformly excellent. John DiMino is by turns glib and shattered as Sean. He appears off kilter from the moment of his first entrance, with the underlying causes performed as a slow reveal.”

Synopsis: Caden and Mae have a lot of pain, but no bruises to show for it. So they play a dangerous game to teach those that hurt them a lesson. But in a world where everyone’s glued to their phones and social media, how far will they go to demand attention before someone truly gets hurt?
“John DiMino as Caden has just enough clumsy charm to make him lovable with a dark edge that rises with the increasing pressure he’s put under.”

Demonstration of a Drunk Driver Accident
ALCHEMICAL THEATER LABORATORY
Written by Jacob Grover
Directed by Joel Kirk
"Demonstration of a Drunk Driving Accident" centers on a group of high school seniors attempting to stage an informational mock car crash to spread awareness about the dangers of drinking and driving in anticipation of their prom. But their once-conventional rehearsal begins to break down as the speckled record of the groups' past comes to light, shattering the bonds of friendship they once thought impermeable and the illusion that their youth make them invincible. The piece grapples not only with the fleeting nature of adolescent innocence but the meta-theatrical implications of "scared-straight" programs, questioning the merit and efficacy of didactic pseudo-theater. The material derives from Grover's own experience with a similar type of program put on by his high school while he was a student.
The play features Kendall DuPre, Chapman Hyatt, Michelle Davis, John DiMino, and Stephanie Wurster, all alumni (barring DuPre, who is in her final semester) of New York Univeristy's Tisch School of the Arts Department of Drama. Director Joel Kirk hails from Ball State University in Indiana
Grover himself is also an alumnus of Tisch, graduating in May of 2016 with a BFA in dramatic writing with a concentration in playwriting.
"Demonstration of a Drunk Driving Accident" is a play written by Jacob Grover. Its upcoming production at the Alchemical Theatre Laboratory is being directed by Joel Kirk, produced by Jonathan Evans and Rebecca Lampiasi, with Chase Crandell serving as co-producer. Tate Rehklau and Grant Farsi served as lighting designers and Lucas Castro as stage manager. Poster and promotional art design by Luke Strickler.

As the sentencing of their son and brother’s murderer nears, questions of justice and forgiveness arise and the family seeks to sift through what has been lost. As they pull at the threads of these questions, new truths begin to unravel.
“John DiMino as John offers a winning portrait of jaunty youthful behavior mixed with rage and resentment especially during an emotional breakdown.”

Few things can penetrate the arcadian lives of these dazzling pals in the height of their young adult lives. Or so they thought. After a chance encounter with fate, their idyllic shared existence begins to crack under the impending pressure of reality. A night with Chekov, a stolen wallet, an angry dog named Sunshine... Tune in to witness what happens when we confront the reality waiting on the other side of the door frame.

The Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute (LSTFI) with The Lee Strasberg Creative Center in collaboration with NYU Tisch School of the Arts' Undergraduate Department of Drama will present a work by playwright, Crystal Skillman a recipients of The Clifford Odets Ensemble Play Commission
The Clifford Odets Ensemble Play Commission is an annual playwriting commission that encourages emerging playwrights to write original works for large ensembles of emerging actors. Through this commission, LSTFI and The Lee Strasberg Creative Center partners emerging playwrights, directors and The Lee Strasberg Method trained actors and encourages "the synergy of great acting with the development of new works. This commission will provide an incubating space for the development of true ensemble plays in New York City and develop the next generation of collaborating artists."
Skillman (Rain and Zoe Saves the World, Wild) writes Pulp Vérité. A graduate filmmaker returns to the states from Syria to reunite with her fellow classmates gathered in Martha's Vineyard with the goal of finishing their documentary film. But what once began as a story about creating art to survive in a war torn country becomes personal as the classmates record themselves attempting the impossible: bringing the last member of their filmmaking crew home. Full of theatrical imagination, Pulp Vérité, plunges head first into the joy and terror of sharing stories about those monsters under our beds that never seem to go away... and the price that comes with the art of telling the truth.
