The other day, something happened to Itchy at work. She started itching. On another day, the office of Todd David Design plans an event. An event, as you know, is a story with a beginning, a middle, and an itch. The theme of the event is eggs. But what is the story of the egg? This is going to be an indelible, one-of-a-kind experience for Mark, Joanna, their company Juvenescence, and the guests. Just watch out for the art, okay? Don’t itch anything if you’re not sure.

The Hearth nurtures and celebrates artists who are women, trans, nonbinary and people of underrepresented genders (playwrights, directors, actors, and designers) and develop plays that represent the complex and vast spectrum of womanhood. The Hearth produces plays that explore characters who pulse with emotional, intellectual, and psychological complexity. We seek to challenge stereotypes, advance and complicate the conversation about feminism, and expand perceptions of what it means to be a woman. We are committed to making room for the next generation of women artists in the landscape of the American theater. We’ve previously produced twice extended and once remounted Athena by Gracie Gardner at JACK, happy life by Kathy Ng at Walkerspace, The Commons by Lily Akerman at 59E59 Theaters, For Annie by Beth Hyland at Lucid Body House, She Buried the Pistol by Lydia Blaisdell at WOW Festival at La Jolla Playhouse and among many workshops and internal development, we’ve hosted public readings of plays by Nissy Aya, Leila Teitelman, Lizzie Stern, and Rae Binstock.
