About the Show
Theater for the New City presents a time-traveling adventure about a pair of married lesbians who are transported back to early 20th-century New York City.
During an inexplicable seismic event in 2017, NYC spouses Becky and Mandy are flung through a window and land in a Greenwich Village theater a century prior. While searching for a way back home, they learn life lessons about prejudice, trust, and love, and discover that many of the issues and conflicts plaguing contemporary society—homophobia, racism, and anti-Semitism—haven’t changed much over the decades.
"It’s worth checking out...Seeing Barbara Kahn’s plays can be quite a revelation. Whether or not you have a personal connection, as Kahn does, to any of the groups mentioned in the play, I think you’ll find it comforting to know that our city has had a considerable, long-lived movement for equality...The tireless cast unearth the many identities found in our neighborhood this last century, and they play these characters with great sincerity."
