Project Y Theatre Company is presenting a free reading of Lauren Yee’s Hookman, directed by Lee Sunday Evans on Sunday, December 6th at ART/NY Bruce Mitchell Room, 520 8th Avenue, 3rd Floor, at 7:15PM as part of its Parity Plays: 50% (or more!) women in casting reading series.

The cast includes Olivia Oguma, Annie Dow, Emma Ramos, Emma Galvin, Stephanie Hsu, and Forrest Malloy.
Synopsis: Freshman year at college is hard when your roommate is weird, you’re feeling homesick, and a hook-handed serial killer is slashing girls’ throats. But if Lexi can discover what really happened to her high school best friend on that car ride to the movies, everything will be okay. In this existential slasher comedy, Lexi and her friends learn what it means to grow up – and it’s not pretty.

Project Y produces world premieres and New York premieres of new plays every season, and also offers readings, workshop productions, and more.  In addition, the Project Y Playwrights Group is a selective playwrights’ workshop that meets twice a month to read and discuss new work.


Plays with great roles for people… who happen to be women.

In the interest of increasing gender parity in the theatre, Project Y presents Parity Plays, a reading series of plays with 50% or more female casts, and focusing on female playwrights.
