It's a busy week before the holiday for Matthew, who will star in two play readings by New Dramatists resident playwrights Matthew Freeman, a longtime collaborator of Matthew's, and Kirk Wood Bromley, author of DOGGO DUMPS FAMMY, which Matthew starred in at Kirk's ND induction ceremony earlier this year.

The ENC is a new version of The Emperor's New Clothes. When a famed tailor creates a special garment for the Emperor, it throws the citizenry into chaos. His counselors must decide: do they participate in the Emperor's parade to celebrate his new raiment? Or do they risk admitting what their eyes can see?

Conceived as a kind of sequel to / remix of Love's Labour's Lost with a cast of 17 performers, Want's Unwisht Work takes place "400 years and 6 months" after the Lords of Navarre took a vow of celibacy. The play was first produced under the dramaturgy and direction of Aaron Beall at Nada, a storefront theater on Ludlow Street, NYC, in 1996, and inspired Michael Feingold of The Village Voice to title Bromley "The Verse Play Champion."

Matthew is featured in Robert Gonyo's podcast 'Go See A Show!'

Even joy these days seems somewhat defiant…the joy of the show is a statement, too. We live in times where allowing yourself to laugh is a political act, because it feels like we’re not supposed to…it feels like a bit of a revelation when people come here, and realize, ‘oh, I forgot about comedy…I forgot about what it’s like to release in that way…
— Matthew Trumbull on MARIAN, OR THE TRUE TALE OF ROBIN HOOD, Go See a Show! podcast, Feb. 7, 2017

Matthew discussed joy, comedy, and Robin Hood along with fellow MARIAN, OR THE TRUE TALE OF ROBIN HOOD cast member Kevin R. Free and fight director Rocío Mendez on the Go See a Show! podcast, with host Robert Gonyo.
