About The Artists
DRAMA OF WORKS, “New York’s tightly organized satirists” (In Pittsburgh), are known for their innovative works “high on fantastic production value” (Village Voice) that cross the line between actors and puppeteers. “Whatever it is supposed to be, it isn’t boring.” (Puppetmaster) Led by Artistic Director Gretchen Van Lente (former president of UNIMA-USA), they have performed around New York City, plus all over the East Coast and abroad since 1999 with their unique brand of theatre: gaining members, fans and supporters along the way. They have been hosting PUNCH off and on since 2005.
