Field Notes from The Service Road
A ferocious storm hits Prospect Park.  The once peaceful service road turns strange as a nature guide attempts to find a lost child.  On her quest she meets the denizens of one of the few natural places left in a large city.  The nature guide is a modern day Hercules trying to do penance for a very bad thing she had done when she was out of her mind.  Obie award winning playwright (Map of Virtue) Erin Courtney examines what it means to be of service and the true nature of forgiveness.  Director Meghan Finn seamlessly blends Erin's sparse poetic language with the highly visual multi-media spectacle that you've come to expect from Adhesive Theater Project.

Claire Moodey's Biographical Sketch
“A breezy bucolic day in Prospect Park with trees rustling, cicadas buzzing, starlings and meadow birds cheeping; the rumble and roar of a tornado ripping down trees as it whirls through the park; gurgle and spew of erupting Port-a-potties; the phantasmic howl of a ghost dog that lures a big-headed toddler toward the haunted grounds of a Quaker cemetery.  These are a few of the soundscapes that I and my mutli-talented musical partner, Claire Moodey, get to conjure in real-time for Erin Courtney's harrowing and heart-breaking new play, The Service Road.  To match the wide gamut of technical invention employed in this production, we have wed the traditional percussive arts of Foley – bricolage of feathers, rattles, tongue drums, detuned auto-harp, a duduk, and more – with the shifting sonic textures of keyboard synthesis, phased looping, and surround sound technology.  Director Meghan Finn, who brilliantly weaves all the elements of this narrative together, let us play and get wild during the rehearsal process to discover the sonic palette of the show.  That was a blessing.  I believe sound is the element that can most powerfully and kinetically ground an audiences' experience while getting them to breathe with the rhythm of a play.  But music is the spirit that moves us.  And I am most proud of the musical language we've discovered for this production, which compositionally merges the sensibilities of early 1990s grunge (e.g. Hole) with fragments and motifs from an iconic Joni Mitchell song.  One of my favorite moments in the play is accompanying Lia's unfolding soliloquy as she recounts the story that has left her searching and suffering on The Service Road.  It has been an absolute joy collaborating with Erin, Meghan, Cory, Kalle, puppeteer-actress Caroline Tamas and all of the gifted artists, teachers, staff and students of The New York City College of Technology.  I hope you will come and join us on this beautiful journey...”

God and Satan make the ultimate bet.  Meet Job, the wise and powerful judge of an Ancient Israelite tribe.  Satan bets God that he can make Job blaspheme God through ever escalating violence and loss.  Will Job question God's promise to reward the righteous, even when his prayers for mercy go unanswered?
In this dark, twisted comedy Thomas Bradshaw brings an honest, un-cynical adaptation of the book of Job.  "We are living in this oddly religious moment in America.  I did a ton of research.  The Talmud has like eight different theories about when Job lived and who he was, so I had to sit down with a Jewish scholar and figure out which would be best for my purposes."
