New York Plays
by Maria Brandt
27 Shorts Exploring New York
An Ensemble Cast of 7W / 5M
Approx. Playing Time: 1.5- 2.5 Hours 

At its premiere in Rochester, New York, one audience member commented, “Watching Will They Know Who We Are? is like riding a train through New York State.”  This collection of 27 short plays set across the state chronicles a growing fascination with the cultural and geographical diversity of New York, exploring different histories, ideologies, and/or conflicts specific to different regions. Some employ straightforward, gritty realism; some employ choruses that function as ghosts or icons and speak in poetry, if at all; some are spare or abstract in their staging; some split the stage; some play with versions of the monologue; some aim for lyricism; some have no spoken words at all. All confront the complexity and humanity of the dramatic form—as well as of New York State, its landscape, and its residents. Perform all or a selected number of the plays for a full evening of insight and entertainment.  The 27 plays are also available individually upon request. $20 Single Use Copyright Fee plus $60 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.  Professional Theatre Royalties Calculated on Application.
