Current Season

A play by Juilliard Grad Jonathan Caren, one of America's exciting new theatrical voices. Aaron is smart, privileged and liked by everyone. Iskinder, his college roommate, is modest, unconnected and comes from a middle-class immigrant family. Soon the best of friends, Aaron takes Iskinder under his wing, sharing his world of favors and fortune. But once in the real world, Aaron is thrust into a terrifying situation without his familiar safety net. As the tables turn, both Aaron and Iskinder have to rethink the meaning of friendship and where loyalty has its limits.
