TWO SIDES is about a woman grappling with loss – lost love, lost life, and lost identity. The year is 1999 and Y2K is on the horizon. When Mimi’s mother dies, she finds herself adrift in New York City and becomes tangled in a dangerous love triangle. Alexandra Siladi is a 2012 Planet Connections Award Winner for Outstanding Original Production and Outstanding Director.

“Director Alexandra Siladi’s dark and moody staging deepens the jaded view of the men’s microcosm…The production is stunning from the first moment to the last.” — Karen Totora-Lee, “The Happiest Medium” on “The American Play”, June 20, 2012

Black Lodge Theater is a production house based in Brooklyn that was founded with the mission to explore the absurdities of reality. Members include producers, directors, writers, designers, actors, managers, artists, publicists, musicians, and filmmakers of all ages, ethnicities, and genders. We fulfill our mission by bringing obscure and world-premiere theatrical works to the stage with a cinematic eye and by fostering a community through collaboration between mediums. Under the curatorial vision of Artistic Director Alexandra Siladi, Black Lodge Theater lives for an audience who is open to challenging the limits of performance by engaging with plays that are honest, confrontational, and darkly comedic containing elements of magical-realism. BLACK LODGE THEATER is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization. Contributions for the charitable purposes of their work must be made payable to Fractured Atlas only and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
