From Tony Award nominee Bess Wohl (Grand Horizons) comes an exhilarating new play about how far weâ€™ll go to belong. During a golden summer at the real-life Camp Siegfried, a picturesque campground on Long Island, two teenagers find themselves on a collision course with youthful passion and unbridled extremism. Are they falling in love or falling for something more sinister? Set on the cusp of World War II, this boy-meets girl-meets-cautionary tale about the seductive nature of fascism reveals a shocking part of Americaâ€™s past and reminds us how easily darkness can sneak up on us.
Begins Nov 30
City Hall is demanding more than his signature, the landlord wants him out, the liquor store is closed â€” and the Church wonâ€™t leave him alone. For ex-cop and recent widower Walter â€śPopsâ€ť Washington (Stephen McKinley Henderson) and his recently paroled son Junior (Common), the struggle to hold on to one of the last great rent stabilized apartments on Riverside Drive collides with old wounds, sketchy new houseguests, and a final ultimatum in this Pulitzer Prize-winning dark comedy from Stephen Adly Guirgis. For Pops and Junior, it seems the old days are dead and gone â€” after a lifetime living Between Riverside and Crazy.
â€śItâ€™s a dizzying and exciting place to be!â€ť hails The New York Times.
Good intentions. Bad decisions. Great fun. In Larissa FastHorseâ€™s satirical comedy The Thanksgiving Play, a troupe of really well-meaning theater artists dream of creating something revolutionary: a culturally sensitive, totally inoffensive Thanksgiving school pageant that finally gives a voice to Native Americans. Finding said Native Americans... isnâ€™t so simple. And thatâ€™s when things start to get absurd. Sending up a whole feast of social issues, this bitingly funny play roasts everything right, wrong, and woke in America.
Beginning March 15th, 2023
