By María Irene Fornés
Directed by Vishnupad Barve

This production is a cycle of four linked short plays by Maria Irene Fornes, one of our greatest and most influential living playwrights. She presents a thrillingly dangerous dystopian vision that spans 60 years, tracking an extended family of desperate characters whose lives are intertwined as they try to eke out a precarious living in the city's violent underground. This Pulitzer Prize-nominated play is Fornes’ incisive exploration of the human hunger for survival by any means.

This event is part of Celebrando Fornés/Celebrating Fornés, a year-long effort to raise awareness of Fornés’ legacy and her impact on American theater.
