Lamb Lays with Lion & New Saloon present a double bill: Entitlement and William Shakespeare's Mom. Entitlement is part 3 of The American Trilogy and William Shakespeare's Mom is an excessive portrayal of suffering. Both run January 17th - 26th, 2013. Press dates beginning tonight, January 17th, 2013.
Lamb Lays with Lion's Entitlement (part 3 of the American Trilogy) :
Entitlement is a new work that peers at the sphere of blogs and oped columns, whose scope spans right-wing conservative talk radio to left-wing liberal facebook posts. Employing the Theatre of Disruption and using self-enclosed lighting, the piece looks at mothers who desire maids over roombas, grown adults living at home playing xbox, and men who drive jeeps because their bosses commit suicide.
Having presented parts 1 and 2 of the American Trilogy, ($ at the Tank, as well as Ignorance at the Democracy Festival,) Lamb Lays with Lion looks with great anticipation to producing the trilogy's final installment during their"presidency" at The Brick Theater.
Conceived, Written, and Directed by Jeremey Catterton.
Set, Costumes, and Choreography by Company.
Company: Jeremey Catterton, Julia Mae Fairbanks, Jake Ford, Breese Pickel.

New Saloon's William Shakespeare's Mom (an excessive portrayal of suffering):
Through a necessary battle with truth, Will (Shakespeare) tries to be sincere, fries himself an egg, joins a marching band, books extravagant trips that he knows he will ultimately cancel, and texts his mom for money. He struggles to discover financial success and artistic recognition in one and the same lifetime.
New Saloon presents an under-the-kitchen-sink drama starring great artists, their mothers and their mothers' interns. WSM is a meditation on the comic and common anxieties of the artist: How can such a person contribute to society in any era without feeling like a dependent louse? Can artistic integrity and the American dream co-exist?
Written by Milo Cramer
Directed by Morgan Green
With: Madeline Wise, Noah Schechter, and Caitlin Morris
