Unbearable Hotness by Gabriel Davis, Directed by William Steinberger
Unbearable Hotness puts an LGBT spin on frat culture. Andrew has thrown a house party in hopes that the unbearably hot Marisa will attend. Once he learns she is somewhere in his home, it's game on as he plans his conquest. Matters get complicated for Andrew when Chuck arrives bent on the same goal, followed by Jill who reveals her boyfriend is pursuing Marisa and Marisa is pursuing her. Beatrice (aka "Benny") watches on amused as his peers become more and more frenzied over the unbearably hot object of their affections. When Marisa finally enters, passions run high and Chuck is almost killed! In the end, true love is sparked for some and dreams are dashed for others.



ABOUT DREAM UP – TNC’s Summer Showcase

The motto of the festival is "Dream Up: Invent, Concoct." The festival is dedicated to new works.
The question of the artist's vision to free or attack the material will be asked in each application. The festival does not want traditional theater which is presented in a traditional way. Theater for the New City wants to use this festival as a way to push ideas to the forefront with the hope of revealing roads less traveled or undiscovered. Presentation of a straightforward play must be imaginative in some way.

Festival Description
Theater for the New City will present a 3 week long anthology of wide-ranging and original theatrical visions embracing drama, poetry, music, and dance in the summer of 2015 from performing artists representing theater and performance companies in our theater complex in downtown New York. The motto of the festival is "Dream Up: Invent, Concoct."

Theater Background
Theater for the New City (TNC) Selected Awards: TNC has won over 42 VILLAGE VOICE OBIE AWARDS for excellence in for excellence in every theatrical discipline. TNC has won 5 ASCAP AWARDS. Pulitzer Prize for Drama for Sam Shepard's BURIED CHILD, premiered & commissioned by TNC.
