"Powerhouse Pinter launches new company... ”New World Order” has the distilled power of cask-strength whiskey. There’s some welcome unpleasantness going down, and ultimately it’ll knock you for a loop... Artistic Director David Girard also does brilliant work directing... a thematically coherent, dramatically powerful evening of theater"
- Steve Barnes, Times Union
"If you are going to start a new theater company, it’s a good idea to define yourself... Troy Foundry Theatre certainly does... The production identifies the new company as one which relishes political theater and is not afraid to embrace the dark and brutal... New World Order is clear and vivid... David Girard effectively captures the oppression of this dark dystopian world and his staging keeps the production smooth and flowing. Clearly this is a director and a company in control of its material" (Goepfert, Troy Record & The Saratogian)
"'New World Order' a fine debut at Troy Foundry Theatre... Astutely and brilliantly directed by the company’s artistic director, David Girard, the production is an auspicious debut for the area’s newest professional theater company"
-Jeff Haff, The Daily Gazette
"We didn't choose these plays to directly comment on America now," David Girard insists, "and it certainly wasn't to capitalize on what's going on in the country. It's just that the themes have turned out to be a lot more relevant now than when we picked them just a few months ago" (Barnes, Times Union).
Arts Writer Steve Barnes interviews Artistic Director David Girard and actor John Romeo to talk about how New World Order came about...
"According to its three founders, “inquiry” and “practice” are at the core of the Troy Foundry Theatre’s mission. The newly created professional company aims to explore social issues by producing new work or reinterpreting existing work using immersive performance and devised theater techniques."

David is excited to be going to Colorado this summer and working with Perry-Mansfield as the PPI Theatre students take the stage under David's direction in Macbeth.
