DEATH FOR SYDNEY BLACK
Written by LEAH NANAKO WINKLER
DEATH FOR SYDNEY BLACK is a darkly familiar and subversive take on the ‘teen comedy’ trope, as characters sing, rap, and enact various versions of a timeless story: the unpopular girl becomes popular, high-school cliques tear asunder, and revenge is exacted. Find out if this uncensored 21st century fairytale has a happy ending!

Scenic Designer: JASON SIMMS
VENUE: IRT Theater, 154 Christopher Street, 3B, New York 10014

*This fall, my short play Taisetsu Na Hito, directed by Matt Dickson was a part of the Cap Locks Theater’s Sex With Robots Festival at the Secret Theatre. Here are some nice things people have said about it!
“Taisetsu Na Hito by Leah Nanako Winkler presented an unabashed look at the intersection of the robot fetish and the asian maid fetish. In her play, a wholesome American couple (Darcy Fowler and Alex Herrald) become the owners of a Japanese robo-maid (Mari Yamamoto). Fowler and Herrald were hysterical as an unhappy repressed married couple who were bursting with bottled-up emotions. Yamamoto captured the slow, precise movements of the current generation of robots, and she delivered Winkler’s excessively polite Japanese dialog with vacuous subservience”- Theatre For Nerds
“In an outstanding look at our need to unload onto a third party, playwright Leah Nanako Winkler gives us a stylish and funny comedy titled Taisetsu Na Hito, which means, “Is it ok if I call you an important person?” And that’s a perfect title for this brilliant and very well performed short. “ Ny Theatre Now
“Leah Nanako Winkler’s “Taisetsu Na Hito,” which was inspired by the Minami, was the most disturbing piece of the evening. It was hilarious (a long diatribe about ham loaf was probably the funniest moment of the whole night) but the way the humor clashed with the emotional desolation of the two human characters made it truly vivid and unsettling.“- Tor.com
