About the show

The first and third parts of a three-part play cycle that explores the class system, sexual politics, decadence, and treatment of mental illness in 1907 New York. More…

Inspired by the worlds of Edith Wharton and Jacob Riis. When performed in succession, all three parts present a truly American story that transcends time, reminding us that classism, racism, and sexism have always been woven into the fabric of American life and evolve as we do. "Leisure" is a highly theatrical tragedy of manners and sexual restraint, revealing itself through experimental movement, psychological gesture, theatrical jump cuts and multiple character shifts. "Lust," the third play in the cycle, pushes the boundaries of 1907 New York society even further and fits together with "Leisure" like a missing puzzle piece.
