    Pittsburgh area audiences know by now that the team at Off the Wall Theater in Carnegie likes to push the envelope.  From edgy productions of topical, thought-provoking plays, to risqué humor, to powerfully intense modern dance – being unique is the provocative  theater’s life force.
  So as not to disappoint, they’ve done it again!  This holiday season, Off the Wall is staging two shows simultaneously: the Acting Company’s hilariously ribald production of Liz Duffy Adams’ comedy "OR," (directed by John Shepard and starring Erika Cuenca, Robin Abramson, and Ethan Hova) and fireWALL dance theater’s "UPROAR," a delightful spectacle of original choreography by Elisa-Marie Alaio and music by Ryan McMasters.

  The theme of female empowerment rules in both productions. The play "OR," tells the story of Aphra Behn -  poet, spy and one of the world’s first professional female playwrights.  Set in Restoration London, bawdy hilarity ensues as Aphra works her way through one interruption after another in her quest to write a play in one short night (Note: This production contains adult language and naughty sexual situations).
    In "UPROAR," the dancers take us through the creative process of a female writer, with all the twists, turns and triumphs she experiences while creating her ultimate masterpiece.
Off the Wall is inviting everyone to witness the dance production or the play – the choice is yours.  Better yet, see both!  Each production runs for four weeks, so you, friends, family and acquaintances can all enjoy the Off the Wall experience.
  "UPROAR" is at Off the Wall from Dec. 18, 2014 through Jan 11, 2015. "OR" will run from  Dec. 19, 2014 through Jan 10, 2015. The Off the Wall Theater is located at 25 W. Main Street in Carnegie. Tickets are $ 5.00 to $ 35.00 and available either online at http://www.insideoffthewall.com/  or by phone at  888-718-4253.
