Fridays-Sundays) Location: Cite des Arts 109 Vine St. Lafayette, La 70501 Directed by Cooper Helm About the show: EX-cop and recent widower Walter (Pops) Washigton and his newly paroled son Junior have spent a lifetime living between Riverside and crazy. But now, the NYPD is demanding his signature to close an outstanding lawsuit, the landlord wants him out, the liquor store is closed—and the church won’t leave him alone. When the struggle to keep one of New York City’s last great rent-stabilized apartments collides with old wounds, sketchy new houseguests, and a final ultimatum, it seems that the old days may be dead and gone. Winner of the 2015 Pulitzer Prize. “…somewhere south of cozy and north of dangerous, west of sitcom and due east of tragedy…a dizzying and exciting place to be…Blurring lines between the sacred and profane has always been a specialty of Mr. Guirgis…fresh and startling…RIVERSIDE traffics in paradoxes, which is to say it deals with the walking contradictions that are human beings… Actors auditoning for roles must sign up via Facebook message or email us at email@example.com to schedule a time slot.
