Troupe sets its ‘Curtain Call’

Amoralists stage 'Pied,' 'Poorhouse' revivals

Gotham theater troupe the Amoralists will stage back-to-back revivals of their plays “The Pied Pipers of the Lower East Side” and “Happy in the Poorhouse” under the banner “The Amoralists Curtain Call.” Perfs will run July 29 through Aug. 23 at P.S. 122. “Pipers” opens July 29, “Happy” opens Aug. 12.

The theater company earned widespread kudos for “Pipers,” a six-character play about idealistic pals living above a vegan restaurant in Manhattan. Show played at P.S. 122 and Theater 80 St. Marks in 2009. “Happy,” a comedy about a down-on-his-luck mixed martial arts fighter, opened in March of this year, also to generally positive reviews. Both plays are written and directed by Derek Ahonen.

The restaging is unusual — Off Broadway productions rarely resurface so quickly without a commercial producer’s name attached, but “Curtain Call” may also be an attempt by the troupe to raise awareness about its favorably-reviewed shows.
