Dialogue with Three Chords (D3C) brings their seventh season of indie theater to a close by staging plays that confront institutional injustices. Written by Stephen Gracia and directed by Michael LoPorto, the show at the group's new venue of Von Bar starts at 7:30 PM on Thursday, May 24 at 3 Bleecker Street, New York, NY 10012.
D3C are offering a new play and "greatest hit" on this touring leg of their schedule. "For The Love Of Hopeless Causes" is a new work that tells the story of the Saint Patrick's Brigade, a group of Irish immigrants who enlisted in the United States army, but switched sides during the Mexican American War.
It will be presented alongside "The Two Swords Doctrine" which finds two catholic priests passing a flask between confession booths and deconstructing the church's position on sexual criminals within the clergy. This "greatest hit" was first staged in September of 2014 at Mr. Dennehy's. "Both plays deal with the ways people of faith confront institutional injustices," said Gracia, "and the consequences of truly standing with the oppressed and violated."
Gracia and LoPorto co-founded D3C in 2011 as DIY theatre nights to bring free, original, punk rock basement theatre back to a New York City that increasingly is losing its artistic movements and spaces to rising rents.
"For The Love Of Hopeless Causes" features: Chris Donovan, Marisela Grajeda Gonzalez and Gil Ron.
"The Two Swords Doctrine" features: Ian Patrick Poake and Anthony DeVito.

They like me! Amazon viewers are loving the new sitcom Millenniums and my character, John the terrible therapist.
Millenniums is getting very positive reviews on Amazon. Some viewers especially liked my character, John the Therapist. Check out what they had to say...
"Some of my favorite moments are anything with Alex, Mirror Ethan, Crazy Corey, and the unprofessional creepy and hilarious therapist!! it’s pretty clear these guys need as much help as possible. Hope to see more of their group therapy sessions!"
"You don't need to be a millennial to enjoy this show. Actually, watching the show made me really happy that I'm NOT in my twenties anymore. Everybody in the cast is good ... nicely shot... great views of NYC. Best character is the "World's Worst Therapist" --- definitely a keeper."
"Love the characters and their absurd world. Has an "Always Sunny" feel to it. I especially liked the interchange with the hapless therapist, played by Anthony DeVito, in episode 5. That guy is hilarious, even when delivering straight lines."
"Without a doubt, the funniest scenes are those with the very unprofessional therapist. I think these guys should have a therapy session in every episode! I'd be hooked if they did."
