National Theatre Live presents The Hard Problem A new play by Tom Stoppard
Guild Hall
158 Main Street
East Hampton
6313240806

Friday, May 8 at 7 p.m. Acclaimed playwright Tom Stoppard (Shakespeare in Love, Arcadia, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead) returns to the National Theatre with his highly-anticipated new play The Hard Problem, directed by Nicholas Hytner (Othello, Hamlet, One Man, Two Guvnors).
Hilary, a young psychology researcher at a brainscience institute, is nursing a private sorrow and a troubling question at work, where psychology and biology meet. If there is nothing but matter, what is consciousness? This is ‘the hard problem’ which puts Hilary at odds with her colleagues who include her first mentor Spike, her boss Leo and the billionaire founder of the institute, Jerry. Is the day coming when the computer and the fMRI scanner will answer all the questions psychology can ask? Meanwhile Hilary needs a miracle, and she is prepared to pray for one.
Tickets $18 / $16 Members

Farmingdale
908.415.3760

American Airpower Museum and Infinite Variety Productions to Present a Production of Censored on Final Approach Phyllis Ravel’s Riveting Play Tells the Story of Women Pilots During WWII

(Farmingdale, NY) – On May 8th and 9th 2015, the American Airpower Museum at Republic Airport, Farmingdale, NY in partnership with Infinite Variety Productions will present a production of Censored on Final Approach by Phylis Ravel, a the story of four WASP (Women Airforce Service Pilots) who were hired by the Army Air Forces during WWII to fly military aircraft and tow targets for live anti-aircraft artillery practice. There were over 1,000 WASP during WWII.

The women in Ms. Ravel’s play are willing to accept any mission for their chance to serve their country,

gain the respect of their male counterparts, and experience the thrill of flying. As one of the characters in

the play puts it, “I guess that’s the difference…Most men are here because they have to be. We’re here

because we want to be.” This is a story of strength, courage, identity, and the close-knit friendships

formed during a very important period in American history. These women flew a combined total of some

60 million miles in every type of military aircraft and paved the way for future generations of female pilots,

both military and civilian

We hope to bring a deeper layer of meaning to IVP’s acclaimed production by performing this piece in the

AAM’s historic WWII hangar against a backdrop of vintage aircraft.  With the ability to explore the

museum’s exhibits, the WWII planes, interact with various authors and historians specializing in the

WASP, and witness a play that comes straight out of the history books, IVP and the AAM promise this will

be a night to remember for all attendees.

The media is invited to a full dress rehearsal on May 6th at 8PM at the museum.

WHEN: Friday, May 8th @ 8pm and Saturday, May 9th @ 8pm (Museum opens at 6pm)

WHERE: American Airpower Museum, 1230 New Hwy, Farmingdale, NY 11735

WHY: It is time the women who gave so much of themselves during WWII were recognized.

Admission: All tickets include admission to the American Airpower Museum.  General admission- $25,

Veterans: $18, Seniors: $18, Students: $15,(email infinitevarietynyc@gmail.com for discount code)
