SRT's Inaugural Walk/Race
NYCRUNS Memorial Day
Ice Cream Social

Monday, May 26

Did someone say ice cream?

Members and supporters of SRT are participating in NYCRUNS Memorial Day Ice Cream Social to help raise funds to cover our rental costs this summer, and we would LOVE for you to join us!

The Collaborative Series returns this August, which will be free of charge, follwed by a reception. Your participation in the walk/race on May 26 will help make the 2014 Collaborative Series possible. Plus, we get to hang out, get physical, and eat ice cream together!

If you live outside of the NYC area (geography can be a bummer), please consider sponsoring Todd, Olivia, or another participant!

Spring 2014

SRT welcomes new Co-Artistic Director, Olivia Mora! 

olivia2  olivia1 

This spring marks the start of our 12th season, and Sonnet Rep has built a reputation not only for quality in classic theatre in New York City, but also excellence in operations -- which is a testament to the community of support for which we are so very grateful!

As we transition forward, after seven successful years as Co-Artistic Director, Tiffany Little Canfield will be moving into a new role at SRT. As Artistic Associate, Tiffany will continue to be involved in the creative direction of the company and remain an integral member of the staff and Board of Directors.

Joining Todd Loyd as SRT's new Co-Artistic Director is Olivia Mora. Olivia couldn’t be happier to partner with Sonnet Rep and Todd, who she’s worked with on various projects since they were 14 years old. Prior to New York, Olivia was Associate Artistic Director for Maui Academy of Performing Arts. She’s worked in theatre and theatre education for over 20 years as a teacher, director, choreographer, actor and everything else in between. Currently, Olivia works as Assistant Director of Admissions at a private school in New York City where she also directs Shakespeare projects for the Middle and Upper School divisions. Olivia is a graduate of PCPA Theaterfest and holds a BA in theatre/modern choreography from Mills College.

We welcome Olivia to the team, and look forward to this year's season! Plans to be announced shortly...

The Maids

SRT presented Genet's The Maids at The Pershing Square Signature Center, November 22 - December 1.

About The Maids

Tryst- Middle English variant of trist (taken from the French word triste) --an appointed place in hunting.

The Maids is a miscreant tryst in the dark corner where envy, love, and hate all swirl together.

Jean Genet was the son of a prostitute. As a boy, he was passed around foster families before serving several bouts in various penal institutions, and was dishonorably discharged from the service for homosexuality. He survived on petty theft and prostitution, eventually finding his way through art. Genet's life is an example of the abstruse outsider many of his characters are drawn from.

Set on a humid, late-summer night in the latter half of the 1940s, this rendition of Genet's twisted tale of class rebellion evoked a context reminiscent of post-WWII New Orleans.

The Maids, like many of Genet's works, tells the story of individuals desperate to break out of the suffocating confines they were born into - their only hope of escape being to take the imaginative leap into a part they were not born to play. As in life, happy endings are not guaranteed, but as many artists will attest, sometimes a daring act witnessed and applauded is just as satisfying.
