We acknowledge that our theatre is located on land that is not ours. We acknowledge that the Lenni Lenape people are the original people of this land and that they continue to be a vibrant community.
We acknowledge that we benefit from systems that are rooted in capital created and expanded by the free labor of Black people, in the form of chattel slavery and legal and cultural segregation. We stand in solidarity with Black people in fierce advocacy for equality and justice.
A NOTE FROM THE 22-23 LEAD ARTISTIC DIRECTOR
Hello dear audience,
If you are here at the Wilma for the first time or if you’ve been coming here since before I was born, welcome. We’re so happy to have you. Thank you for joining us for the first of five shows in our 2022-23 Season. You are in for something outside of the ordinary tonight.
The three creators of Those With 2 Clocks call themselves Tall Order, and they have devoted a great deal of time and attention to the way they work together- their “praxis”- which is non-hierarchical and centers the body and deep listening. Walking into a room with them does something to your bones…in a refreshing way. I always believed the process shows up in the work and this piece is proof. You’ll see the thoughtful, interconnected working style come to life. You will also laugh a lot, and your bones will open up.
Those With 2 Clocks is playing at the edge of safety, and inviting us to join. If we laugh, we’re invited to examine why. If we feel uncomfortable, we can examine that too. And isn’t this opportunity for expansion and reflection what theater is good for? I hope you will enjoy this invitation to laugh, feel uncomfortable, and imagine a new future with Tall Order.
-2022-23 Season Lead Artistic Director Morgan Green
“Historically, pandemics have forced humans to break with the past and imagine their world anew. This one is no different. It is a portal, a gateway between one world and the next, we can choose to walk through it, dragging the carcasses of our prejudice and hatred, our avarice, our data banks and dead ideas, our dead rivers and smoky skies behind us. Or we can walk through lightly, with little luggage, ready to imagine another world and ready to fight for it.” -Arundati Roy

Xavier has stopped doing homework because of climate change. Dana never turns her Zoom camera on. James hates reading. A portrait of the NYC school system, told in musical snapshots of individual teenagers, sung by their broke, hapless tutor.
A broke and hapless tutor performs original songs about teenage students, their parents, and the SAT in this charming, funny, and insightful musical journal.
Writer/performer Milo Cramer (Minor Character) was inspired by their real-life experiences as a tutor to create this intimate, fictional musical, which they describe as “loving musical portraits of struggling students.”
School Pictures contains warmhearted insights into our inequitable educational system. This world premiere is directed by Lead Artistic Director Morgan Green, who previously directed the world premiere virtual production of James Ijames’ Pulitzer Prize-winning play Fat Ham.

By encouraging students to reflect on the complexities of contemporary life today, we nurture the audiences, innovators and global citizens of tomorrow.

The Wilma HotHouse Company is the Wilma Theater’s ensemble of actors – a process oriented community of artists who develop and implement theatrical practice alive with possibilities, physical excitement, and intellectual engagement.
They meet regularly to train as artists and to expand, deepen, and liberate their bodies and voices through collective exploration.
In their sessions and rehearsals they lead with curiosity, care and honesty. Through multi-perspective collaboration, they interrogate truth, myth, and ethos, toward greater access and expression of the unknown.
