Ironweed's new project!


Be the first to experience live theater at Second Street Brewery at the Railyard! And not on a stage, but within the restaurant, at a table or barstool near you!

Ironweed Productions, in association with Santa Fe Performing Arts, celebrates its 11th year in Santa Fe with Creating a Scene (in a Restaurant), a unique site-specific theater experience featuring scenes and monologues from local writers. This exciting event will be presented on Monday and Tuesday, November 14th and 15th, 2016 at 7:30pm at Second Street Brewery at the Railyard, 1607 Paseo de Peralta.

There is no admission charge, and seating is on a first come, first served basis. Patrons are encouraged to arrive one hour prior to the performance and to order dinner and/or drinks as part of the experience.

Inspired by Ironweed’s 2007 staged reading of David Mamet’s “American Buffalo” at the Tin Star Saloon, Ironweed requested submissions from local writers of scenes and monologues that take place in a bar or restaurant. After receiving over 60 submissions, a 75-minute evening of scenes and monologues, seamlessly flowing from one to the other, has been crafted, featuring pieces written by Jonathan Dixon, Gary Dontzig, Ned Dougherty, Natalie Fox, Bruce King, Kita Mehaffy, Kat Sawyer, Thomas Woodward and Alaina Warren Zachary.

Co-directed by Ironweed Artistic Director Scott Harrison and Wendy Chapin, the production will feature 15 local actors. And who are these actors? Well, that is being kept under wraps. Patrons will know that at 7:30pm on the evenings of the performances “something will happen”, but they will not know what or with whom!

Ironweed is very grateful to Second Street Brewery at the Railyard for hosting this event and for their generous support.

"A production of Our Town that restores the essence and impact that once made the play groundbreaking. What a humble gift to Santa Fe...a reminder of exactly what it is that we yearn for from the theater..."
