Founded in 2023 by award-winning autistic playwright and producer Anthony J. Piccione, the Neurodivergent New Play Series is dedicated to presenting matinee readings on the 3rd Sunday of every month - with seasonal breaks in December, January, July, and August - of plays written entirely by neurodivergent and disabled playwrights (i.e autism, ADHD, dyslexia, OCD, Tourette syndrome, etc.) as part of a growing resident company of playwrights whose interests and specialties span a wide range of subjects, genres & structural approaches, with each play personally selected from a neuroinclusive resident company of directors.

 

The Neurodivergent New Play Series is sponsored, in part, by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by Brooklyn Arts Council.

Minimum donation of $15 to watch in person, and pay-what-you-can for streaming.

AXIOMS

Written by Aubrey Clyburn

Directed by Abigail Gabor
Eliza, a lonely, hyper-logical mathematician, has had a fight with her best (and only) friend. So she retreats to her mind palace to find a solution using the only tools she has: memory, axiomatic set theory, and stuffed animals. She keeps trying to apply mathematical principles to situations from her life, and the math keeps getting more complex, until she finally has to ask whether there's a solution to be found there at all.

NO ENTRANCE
Written by Courtney Taylor

Directed byAbby Davis

No Entrance follows the strange and queer journey Charlotte, a recently ill college grad, takes after being diagnosed with vaginismus, a vaginal condition that makes penetration difficult. Charlotte re-connects with Victoria, a trans inventor she met at school, and receives a DIY genital attachment to facilitate intimacy from a garage lab Victoria runs alongside her sidekicks, Curly and Helen. Chaos and self discovery ensues, alongside explorations of trauma, riffs on Frankenstein, and re-imaginings of common tropes in queer storytelling.
