A great thank you to all our hosts and all of their guests in our two weekends of Wistaria Home Theatre in the D.C. area — and to Hillyer Art Space who hosted us for the Capital Fringe Festival. We had a blast visiting your communities and singing with you.

We’ve just spent a lovely weekend singing and performing in peoples’ homes with our first round of appearances in the DC area.
This weekend we’ll head back for two more house performances and our two-day run at Hillyer Art Space for the Capital Fringe Festival.
If you are in the area, come and join us on the 18th at 8pm or 19th at 2pm. Tickets Here.
Hip hip hip hip hoorah!
Having finished showing a wild, new segment of Wistaria as part of LEIMAY-CAVE’s SOAK Festival in Brooklyn this month — we are looking forward to our journey to Washington, D.C. where we will perform as part of the Capital Fringe Festival at Hillyer Art Space on July 18th and 19th and, independently, in a few private homes. It will be filled with adventures, as we hold patriotic myths to the fire — and make new friends — in our nation’s capital. Now, just like the traveling tent theaters of the 19th century, the only thing left is for us to form a baseball team. We’d love to have you join us, so get your tickets here.
We also find ourselves in the process of raising the few funds we need to get down there and make these performances happen. Because part of our overall endeavor is to question and negotiate the centrality of money in our art and our society, we’re looking to raise quite a small amount of funds. Just enough to keep us able to bring Wistaria to people outside of the enclave of NYC. So, please check out our Rockethub page and consider joining the adventure by dropping some (deviled) eggs in our basket.
We will present a proscenium version of a sketch of a new segment for Wistaria — called Wistaria, The Gaggery and Gilt — as part of LEIMAY-CAVE’s SOAK Festival on June 7 at 8:30pm and June 8 at 6:00pm. Tickets are limited and available in advance only, here. It’s an interesting challenge for us to create a stand-alone segment of the existing extra-theatrical event for a theatrical presentation, and it should be interesting even for those of you who have seen Wistaria to see this new sequence in this form. We hope to see you there.
We are pleased to announce that Wistaria will perform at Hillyer Art Space in Washington, D.C. on July 18 and 19 as part of the Capital Fringe Festival. In the spirit of the traveling tent theatres that criss-crossed much of the South and Midwest during the 19th and early 20th centuries and following the models of house concerts, we’ll also perform in several homes as part of the ‘tour’. Keep an eye to this page — and our Facebook page — for more details.
Also, if you live in the D.C. area — or have friends or family who do — and might be interested in hosting a small performance in your home, please contact us here.
Wistaria makes its first autumn appearance, returning to The Gershwin Hotel on Saturday, October 19 at 8pm to mark the season. We’re glad to welcome performers lemur onkyokei and Kyra Sims to Wistaria. Come join us, too.
7 East 27th Street, New York, New York 10016
