How could we not be if we didn't post this glowing Village Voice review from Garrett Eisler last week? Or invite you to catch up on the latest reviews of our shows? Or the other positive reviews of Suspicious Package?

But seriously, we've been so busy at The Brick, and with presenting and producing all the wonderful shows at The Film Festival: A Theater Festival, that we can hardly be blamed. (And if you dare to point out that we have a fully-functioning Mac in the box office on which we can theoretically blog between shows we'll punch you in the jaw.)

However, we are not so behind the curve that we can't tell you about our excitement regarding the Film Festival Extensions that we'll be running throughout July! The schedule (with show blurbs) is below. Read it and weep!

Written by Andrew Gilchrist
Directed by Julie Rossman
Dawn sees promise in the grandiose fantasies of her large-faced friend Daniel, who dreams of one day building a theater on a cliff. She also knows scant time remains before she's lost him to the loose and cocksure girls of the Cabaret Magnifique. But will Dawn's confidence avail her? Or will she find herself in a struggle for which she's not yet prepared? In her dreams, she was special… In reality, it was always her Birthtaint...

Death at Film Forum
Old Kent Road Theater
Written and Directed by Eric Bland
Four hip, overweening cinephiles compete in the cruelest of cruelties: an Indie Film-off with one auteur left standing. Naturally the story ends in murder.

The Stubborn Illusion of Time
Bone Orchard
Created by the Company
Born out of improvisation, The Stubborn Illusion of Time tells the story of a living man who stumbles into an old casket factory and emerges, his head bursting with what he has seen: ghosts frozen in a photograph. Bone Orchard plays off the film of their previous theatre piece, The Immediate Present to explore the nature of reality, illusion and time itself.

Suspicious Package
The Fifth Wall
Created by Gyda Arber
In this Brooklyn Noir, you are the Detective, the Starlet, the Heiress, or the Producer in the mean streets of Williamsburg, where technology, reality, theater and film meet. Are you a victim of circumstance or the guilty party? Personal video players accompany you through the mystery and prompt you through your lines, as you star in the show.

Sat & Sun, 7/5 - 7/27
By appointment starting at 4pm

Tod & I
Piehole Productions
Created by Piehole
Puppets, shadows, and sounds remind us what it is to encounter the strangeness of death for the first time, and show us why the woods beyond the funeral home can be the perfect place to play hide and seek. Get away from the flowers and formaldehyde and come out into the dusk with Tod and I.
50 minutes

Wed 7/9, 8pm

Stayed tuned for more stuff!
