An ace fighter pilot reassigned to a remote-controlled drone faces twelve-hour shifts hunting targets from her Air Force trailer followed by twelve in the suburbs with her family in this "gripping" (New York Times) new play about the complicated consequences of waging war without leaving home. Named one of the Best Plays of the year by both London's The Evening Standard and The Guardian, and winner of the Smith Prize for Political Theater, GROUNDED comes to The Public's intimate Anspacher Theater under the masterful direction of two-time Tony Award winner Julie Taymor.

Honoring the spoken word narratives recited in pool halls, bars and prisons across America by generations of black poets, ToasT is a stunning new play about men trying to live free in a system—and a world—designed to keep them chained.

Friday, May 8 - 7:00 PM

A Public Theater commission first presented at The Public’s Under the Radar Festival, ToasT ingeniously weaves major characters from black oral narratives into a gripping story about a group of inmates fighting to keep their minds free amidst the 1971 riots that rocked Attica Prison. Honoring the spoken word narratives recited in pool halls, bars and prisons across America by generations of black poets, ToasT is a stunning new play about men trying to live free in a system—and a world—designed to keep them chained.

Academy Award winner Anne Hathaway returns to The Public in George Brant's spellbinding, ripped-from-the-headlines play GROUNDED. An ace fighter pilot reassigned to a remote-controlled drone faces twelve-hour shifts hunting targets from her Air Force trailer followed by twelve in the suburbs with her family in this "gripping" (New York Times) new play about the complicated consequences of waging war without leaving home. Named one of the Best Plays of the year by both London's The Evening Standard and The Guardian, and winner of the Smith Prize for Political Theater, GROUNDED comes to The Public's intimate Anspacher Theater under the masterful direction of two-time Tony Award winner Julie Taymor.

Obie Award winning ensemble ELEVATOR REPAIR SERVICE returns to The Public, home to its sold-out productions of Gatz (2010 and 2012) and Arguendo (2013), with their highly praised staging of WILLIAM FAULKNER’s modernist masterpiece, The Sound and the Fury. With a lush sound score, high-energy choreography and a profoundly versatile ensemble, ERS delivers a verbatim staging of the novel’s opening chapter (“the Benjy chapter”), Faulkner’s famous experiment with memory and language.
