Dispossessed

A full-length play

Presented at HERE Arts Center

... a colorful, vibrant and poignant personal saga...

...there were also poignant moments of arresting beauty, as when a white sheet is held in hand, an image projected onto its surface, and the actress shifts the position of the image with each fold of the sheet.
— Hallie Sekoff, New York Theatre Review

A bittersweet story of finding and losing home, Dispossessed investigates the history of apartments from Ancient Rome to now, landlord-tenant relationships since the Code of Hammurabi, and the human instinct for object attachment. An eclectic and whimsical mix of poetry, video, music, and sock puppets, with writing by Sir Peter Hall, Luc Sante and Jane Jacobs, Dispossessed is the personal journey of a struggling artist, from the mean streets of the old Lower East Side to the meaner streets of the new New York.
