How does Project Y do it? (Hint: the answer is You!)

2014 Master

Each year Project Y produces innovative and exciting new plays and playwrights.  We support writers, actors, designers, and theatre-makers who have diverse voices and unique ways of interpreting the world. Project Y is a producing organization that relies on the generosity of its audiences and donors to support the years-long incubation process that gives birth to such moving and enjoyable theatrical experiences as this year’s packed season including the critically acclaimed NY Premiere of The Religion Thing, by Renee Calarco, and the award-winning hit, Gary Busey’s One Man Hamlet (as performed by David Carl), which received unanimous raves at the NYFringe and its Encore series extension.

As we close our 15th Anniversary Season, please consider donating to Project Y Theatre Company.  We truly need and rely on your contributions to continue to make groundbreaking theatre by new and diverse playwrights and performers.

Thank you and see you at the theatre!

TechnoPlay Reading: Justin Warner’s “A Wire in Water” 12/14

Posted by MB - December 9, 2014


Project Y Theatre Company’s

2014 Reading Series

TechnoPlays: Science, Technology, and Human Connection


A Wire in Water

by Justin Warner

Directed by Sarah Cameron Sunde

Cap 21 (18W18th Street)

Room 605



Project Y’s 2014 “TechnoPlays” Reading Series comes to a close this week with a reading of Justin Warner’s latest play, A Wire in Water, at Cap21 (18 W 18th Street) at 7pm on Sunday, December 14th. Join us as we hear our final play in this year!

The Cast includes:  Victor G. Barbella, Jeremy Beck,  Ali Rose Dachis, Paul Klementowicz, Brian O’Neill, Zak Risinger, Tracy Sallows, Alex Webb, and Josie Whittlesey



Did Alexander Graham Bell steal a key element of the telephone patent? That question was hotly disputed in headlines and multiple trials in the late 19th century, and some scholars today believe he did. A Wire in Water explores the complicated relationships and conflicting interests that may have forced Bell’s hand, and his struggle to neutralize his actions after the fact.


Justin Warner is a playwright, lyricist, and librettist based in New York City. His plays have been produced in over 25 cities, including NYC, London, LA, DC, and San Francisco. He is a member of the BMI Musical Theater Workshop, and a winner of its Jerry Harrington Award for Outstanding Creative Achievement.  He is also a Kennedy Center-ACTF winner, a NYC 15 Minute Play Competition winner, a Princess Grace finalist, an O’Neill semi-finalist, and a seven-time Heideman Award finalist.  His musicals have been produced, developed, or showcased at the ASCAP/Disney Workshop with Stephen Schwartz, Vital Children’s Theatre, Raw Impressions, Manhattan Musical Theatre Lab, the Triad, the York Theatre, and the Greenwich House Music School Theater Lab.  A Wire In Water was commissioned by the EST-Sloan Project and was previously developed at Luna Stage (NJ).  Other projects include the musicals The Masked Zinfandel with Peter Yarin, The Passion of Ed Wood with Rob Kendt, and a musical adaptation of Andrew Solomon’s book Far From The Tree with Kristin Maloney and Robert Maggio.  Justin is a Lecturer in Expository Writing at NYU, an Associate Artist with AlterTheater in Marin County, CA,  and a member of the Dramatists Guild.
