“LeBank is a fine performer-writer-etc. who seems destined to make a mark on the NYC indie theater scene thanks to his skill, audacity, and enterprise.” (NYTheatre)

“LeBank’s movements are graceful, precise, and joyous to witness.” (NYTheatre)

“He’s a lithe gymnast in ripped jeans!” (Missoula Independent)

“Ezra LeBank is a powerhouse!” (Eugene Weekly)

“LeBank moves his body as if it is moving in its proper way, and we have somehow taught ourselves our inabilities.” (Smith Times)

Summary: Resurrection Day is a wicked satire about one man’s quest to con America into going pro-choice. Discouraged by national trends slowly undoing Roe V. Wade and all but eliminating access to abortion clinics, he sets out to detonate 100 abortion clinics across the country on Easter Sunday to create what he believes will become the biggest pro-choice rallying cry since 1973. He sets out on a road trip to convince people in every corner of the country to join the cause. Equipped with fake identities and a will that knows no limits, he sets out on a quest nobody could have seen coming!

*warning: explicit content.

Fresh Air is a funny and tragic play about Peter, a young man with a broken heart, who reads an article about two castrations during a single week in Woodbryne, PA. He is convinced the incidents are not isolated, and he’s going to be the next victim. Peter goes to Woodbyrne to uncover the story behind the castrations so he can stop the next one before it happens. As Peter’s detective work progresses, the history behind the two castrations reveal themselves, leading him to how the third must inevitably unfold –unless he can stop it. At its heart, Fresh Air investigates the funny and tragic state of contemporary American sexuality, examines how we got here, and searches for a way out.
