About This Show

(Projection) peels back the layers of a New York millennial apartment, subverting and reinforcing the classic living room play to reveal the universal truths of defining yourself in your 20’s. While the motley crew of roommates descends deeper into the stupor of an average evening, they hotly debate, pontificate, test relationship dynamics, and welcome a stranger into their midst. The audience has the unique advantage of seeing these twenty-somethings in their natural environment, guided by a questionably reliable narrator. Part comedy of manners, part coming of age, this theatrical romp offers a story for all ages.

Cast: Maddie Fischer, Malcolm Opoku, Tony Curtis, Marielle Young, and Thomas Vieljeux
