September 7 - October 6
The Revolving Cycles Truly and Steadily Roll'd
Directed by Awoye Timpo
Karma's foster brother, Terrell, has gone missing, and she's trying to find him amidst the inner city chaos that is The Oblong – but his teacher can't remember his name, his foster mom is still cashing his reimbursement checks, and his ex is glad he's gone. Where's the police, where are the reporters? Karma seems to be the only one who cares, but the more she looks, the more she realizes that in The Oblong, caring only means trouble.
Princess Grace Award-winning playwright Jonathan Payne makes his New York debut with this devastating story based on his experience as a social worker, under the insightful direction of Awoye Timpo (The Homecoming Queen).
