In 2010 Brian Bauman took Monarch’s Playwriting Workshop led by Migdalia Cruz and John Jesurun in which he worked on his new play A Crucible. His play is now being produced by Perfect Disgrace Theater at the Wild Project!
A CRUCIBLE follows the drama club at Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception high school as it sets out to stage Arthur Miller’s classic play, The Crucible. Conflicts erupt when ideas about sexuality and contemporary performance begin to influence the young performers and their approach to the production. Fueled by a passion for black magic and avant garde tropes, the young women and men stage a coup to build a performance that addresses their lives. This original play re-appropriates the writing of Arthur Miller, as well as Marilyn Monroe and Andy Warhol’s diaries, John Huston’s film The Misfits and other texts.
