The 2015 Pulitzer Prize-winning drama returns
First premiering Off-Broadway at the Linda Gross Theatre in 2014, Between Riverside and Crazy made waves across the most eminent theatrical circles for its delightfully dark black-comedy. It won the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play, the Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Play, the Outer Critics Circle Award For New Off-Broadway Play and the Pulitzer Prize For Drama. Needless to say, its premiere run was a hit! Now catch this acclaimed black comedy-drama as it returns home to New York City for a stint at the Helen Hayes Theatre courtesy of Second Stage Theater.
Stephen Adly Guirgis's prize-winning play centres around a father and son living in a rent-controlled New York City apartment. Dad, Walter 'Pops' Washington, is a recently retired cop who was injured in the line of duty, and his adult son , Junior, is out on parole. Thrown into the mix are a collection of characters who mean well but only end up adding more chaos to a household already on the verge breaking-point. Will Pops be able to hold onto his sanity, let alone his apartment?
