The New York Premiere of ENCHANTED ARMS directed by Artem Yatsunov, and written by Ben Clawson, Stacie Lents, Joseph Palestina, and John Wooten. Four screwed-up fairy-tales: The Big Bad Wolf wears a short, short skirt, Rumpelstiltskin is tenured in the Ivy league, and Rapunzel is bleeding heavily from the scalp. Plus, Prince Charming seems to be developing a drinking problem. Hot off a nearly sold-out run at Luna Stage in New Jersey, the nomadic bi-state StrangeDog Theatre Company is coming across the Hudson with their evening of new plays that grab four age-old fairy-tales and throw them into a modern dilapidated apartment building. Featuring new works from four New Jersey powerhouse playwrights – John Wooten, Stacie Lents, Joseph Palestina, and Ben Clawson.
