‘WHAT WE KNOW’ (opens on Dec. 8)
The enterprising One Year Lease Theater Company turned heads last year with its production of Mark Ravenhill’s “pool (no water).” That critical hit was staged by the ensemble-based group’s artistic director, Ianthe Demos, who teams here with Natalie Lomonte on the Scottish playwright Pamela Carter’s exploration of life, love and loss in the kitchen. The production employs food preparation and magic to show how one woman fills the gap left after a relationship ends by doing what her former partner did — cooking. Teatro Circulo, 64 East Fourth Street, East Village, (866) 811-4111, oneyearlease.org.
