PLAYS FOR THE PLAGUE YEAR

Begins November 4 Run Time: 3 hours, 30 minutes with intermission

World Premiere 
PLAYS FOR THE PLAGUE YEAR
By Suzan-Lori Parks
Directed by Niegel Smith

On March 13, 2020, as theaters shut their doors and so many of us went into lockdown, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright and The Public’s Writer-in-Residence Suzan-Lori Parks picked up her pen and set out to write a play every day. What emerged is a breathtaking chronicle of our collective experience throughout the troubling days and nights that followed. 

Performing in the intimate Joe’s Pub, PLAYS FOR THE PLAGUE YEAR is at once a personal story of one family's daily lives, as well as a sweeping account of all we faced as a city, a nation, and a global community. Working in collaboration with Niegel Smith as director, Parks' groundbreaking new work is brimming with humanity, bears witness to what we’ve experienced, and offers inspiration as we look ahead.
