Last April, as a part of our first season of Irons in the Fire, we had the pleasure of developing April Ranger’s new play Bathsheba’s Psalms: Or a Woman of Unusual Beauty Taking a Bath. The workshop was directed by Christina Roussos and presented at West Park Presbyterian Church on the Upper West Side. It was a thrill to watch the creative team piece together and refine this beautiful re-imagining of the David and Bathsheba myth. Fast forward to less than a year later, and this show has taken on a life of its own. Led by April and Christina and including many of the artists involved in our 2018 workshop, Bathsheba’s Psalms will be returning for its world premiere production at The Tank this April. We cannot wait to see how this play has continued to grow after its time with Irons in the Fire. We’ll be there on April 5 and hope to see you at the theatre!

A Little About The Show
Sexy. Irreverant. Holy. Bathshebas voice, celebrated, sung at last. From a biblical rooftop, to a warped John Hughes Biology lab and beyond, this unruly adaptation of the infamous Old Testament "love story" capsizes tropes on gender and power. A revelry of sensuality & snark! And fruit, obviously!
