Generations, written by debbie tucker green and directed by Leah C. Gardiner, takes audiences to a South Africa township where a meal is being prepared by three generations of the same family. As they cook, the family members share stories and food, showing what can fall through the cracks of different generations.
The Play Company and Soho Rep production marks the U.S. premiere of generations, from London-born playwright debbie tucker green (who elects to write her name, and her play titles, in lowercase). Generations was recently extended at Soho Rep.

Ludic Proxy,written and directed by Aya Ogawa, explores the importance of human connection through memory, fantasy and virtual reality as three stories from the past, present and future connect. This production is a world premiere.
Opening in May 2015
The Duchamp Syndrome, written and performed by Antonio Vega and directed by Ana Graham, is the story of Juan, a lone immigrant in New York City who’s dream is to be a standup comedian.
