500 West 52nd Street, 3W

Marta has sacrificed her life to care for her ailing father, Herman. Enter Ken, an awkward comic book historian, searching for proof that Herman wrote Dr. Hydra and the Eye, a short-lived, but influential comic book. Ken has written a Dr. Hydra screenplay, but needs the rights in order to get it produced. Marta is willing to help but she knows nothing of this aspect of her father’s past, and Herman has advanced Alzheimer’s.  However, there are boxes to explore and secrets to uncover.

What's Playdate?

Each month, The Shelter invites you to make a date with a new play. Here’s how it works: Our staff specially selects a fresh off the vine play that we’re really excited about. We pair the play with an insanely gifted director and cast. They rehearse. Then we present the play to you as a FREE reading. Pay nothing. Just show up and enjoy. All the fun and theatre you could ever want—with none of the commitment. FIND MORE PLAYDATES
