About the Wedge Series
Each year the Hangar offers free admission to Hangar patrons and all community members to its Wedge Series of cutting edge performances. These shows take place under the Hangar Tent, which is transformed into a unique performance venue for each Wedge show. The Drama League directors get to select their Wedge titles and each performance begins 15 minutes after the Mainstage curtain call that evening.
Written by Tennessee Williams
Directed by Teya Sugareva
Director Teya Sugareva connects two short plays by Tennessee Williams, This Property is Condemnedand Talk to Me Like the Rain and Let Me Listen. We deal with the idea of how difficult it is to escape from a bad environment where we hardly can breathe. It is easy to say "this property is condemned," but it's hard to find beauty in a world of indifference.

His kingdom in disarray at the hands of a deadly plague, King Oedipus arrives at the newly erected medical relief tent at the Hangar Theatre to assess the crisis and appease his constituents. But all goes awry when his past begins to destroy his future. Sean Graney’s wickedly funny and cutting translation brings the classic tragedy into our own backyard, complete with eye-gouging, mother-f*cking, and a chorus of singing nurses.

This is not your mom’s bootycall.
In 2014, we live in a world where it’s possible to unlock your phone, swipe somebody right on Tinder, and be completely naked with them in 10 minutes flat without exchanging a single spoken word. As the advent of new technology enables us to make sexual and romantic connections in less conventional, less personal, less ‘human’ ways, will the act of having sex as we know it become just a ghostly relic of humanity’s past?

A new play by Maggie-Kate Coleman
Directed by Melissa Crespo
We lose things all the time and we mourn them. But is there such a thing as potential loss? What about the things we don't want and never had, but wanted the potential of having? The Map of Lost Things features a woman who is in the aftermath of a miscarriage. Her friend mourns his unrequited love and the One-We-Don't-Talk-About mourns nothing. How do we navigate the map of lost things?
