Shows featuring Tim True's work


Dirty Story

In this savage, very funny play by John Patrick Shanley (Tony- and Pulitzer-award-winning Doubt, Moonstruck), a familiar story of domestic strife takes a twist that will make audiences gasp. In the hands of Third Rail Repertory Theatre, this promises to be a thrilling and provocative evening of theater. Director Scott Yarbrough has assembled a dynamite quartet of actors: company members Valerie Stevens and Michael O’Connell (both of whom recently received Drammy awards for their work in Third Rail’s first production, Recent Tragic Events) are joined by Damon Kupper (last seen in Artist Rep’s Death of a Salesman) and the venerable Ted Roisum.

The Aliens

In April, Third Rail returns to the CoHo Theatre, the site of our very first production, for Annie Baker’s Obie-winning play, THE ALIENS. KJ and Jasper hold court on the back patio of the local coffee shop, trying out a new song. Enter Evan Shelmerdine, the nervous new barista, tasked with getting rid of them. Will he succeed or unwittingly become KJ and Jasper’s newest project? THE ALIENS is a surprising, charming, and gentle meditation on friendship, loss, and a generation of young Americans trying to find their place in the world.
