Elevator Repair Service: Everyone’s Fine with Virginia Woolf by Kate Scelsa

Everyone’s Fine With Virginia Woolf is a new play written by KATE SCELSA, longtime ELEVATOR REPAIR SERVICE company member, for the company, directed by JOHN COLLINS, and featuring a cast of ERS veterans. In this irreverent parody of Edward Albee’s iconic Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolfno one is left unscathed by Martha’s feminist ambitions. Rubbing alcohol will be consumed, imaginary pregnancies will be indulged, and gender constructs will be destroyed once and for all.

This production was noted by The New York Times as a “highlight” of the season.

ELEVATOR REPAIR SERVICE is a New York City-based company that creates original works for live theater with an ongoing ensemble. Since its founding in 1991 by John Collins and a group of actors, ERS has built a body of work that has earned it a loyal following and made it one of New York’s most highly-acclaimed experimental theater companies. In New York their work is most often seen off-Broadway at the Public Theater (GatzArguendo and this season’s Measure for Measure), and at New York Theatre Workshop (The Sound and the FuryThe Select (The Sun Also Rises) and Fondly, Collette Richland). Their work is also seen across America, Europe, Australia and Asia, and they have been the recipient of many awards including a 2012 Obie Award for Sustained Excellence; The Foundation for Contemporary Arts Theater Grant; the Theatre Communications Group’s Peter Zeisler Memorial Award for Outstanding Achievement; and (for Gatz) Elliot Norton Awards for Outstanding Director and Outstanding Visiting Production and Lucille Lortel Awards for Alternative Theatrical Experience and Best Director.
