Prospect by Octavio Solis
 
East Coast premier of Prospect by Octavio Solis

Producer: ( Boundless Theatre Company Inc.)
Boundless Theatre Company Inc.
City: New York

Additional Notes:
In this acclaimed, early play by renowned writer Octavio Solis (Se Llama Cristina at INTAR; Pulitzer Prize nominated Lydia at Mark Taper Forum) Scout, a computer programmer with promise of upward mobility, attracts the interest of Liza and Vince, foolhardy opportunists in a complicated relationship. Vince drags the trio home where his wife Elena remains homebound smoking pot, watching porn, and craving snow peas. A drink and drug fueled night between unlikely friends scrapes down desires, secrets, and identities to the bone. Prospect received its West Coast Premiere at El Teatro Campesino in 1993. It has received subsequent productions at the Latino Chicago Theatre Company, The Magic Theatre in San Francisco, and the North Coast Repertory Theatre in Solana Beach, CA. This will be the plays first time on the East Coast.“Prospect is the first play I wrote after taking INTARs Hispanic Playwrights-in-Residence Lab with Maria Irene Fornes,” says playwright Octavio Solis. “In many ways, she opened up my imagination and enabled me to craft this story about a young man trying to ‘score in Dallas, Texas. Looking back on this work now, more than 27 years since its first production, I see how I was also trying to articulate something about the dark underbelly in Reagans America. The sudden wealth, the prosperity, and the hedonism left so many behind to eke out a squalid living on the ‘trickle-down. In a direct reflection of that world, the endless partying in Prospect becomes a kind of paroxysm of despair that takes us all to the very edge of our being.”“Prospect hilariously exposes our frenzied hunt for success, and questions what we abandon to get to where we feel entitled to be,” says director Elena Araoz, “how family falls victim while we flail and thrash about for a fighting chance.”

THE EFFECT
 
“A KNOCKOUT! An ingenious ravishment of the senses.”
– Ben Brantley The New York Times

City: New York

Additional Notes:
When it debuted, THE EFFECT took London by storm, winning BEST NEW PLAY from the UK Critics Circle. Now, award-winning director David Cromer (OUR TOWN, TRIBES) helms a new American production of this exhilarating play in the first collaboration between THE NATIONAL THEATRE, JEAN DOUMANIAN PRODUCTIONS and BARROW STREET THEATRE.

Hearts racing. Minds reeling. Knees buckling. Connie and Tristan have palpable chemistry—or is it a side effect of a new super-antidepressant? They are volunteers in a clinical trial, but their sudden and illicit romance forces the supervising doctors to face off over the ethical consequences of their work.

From Lucy Prebble, “one of the UKs hottest new playwrights” (The Telegraph), THE EFFECT takes on our pill-popping culture with humor and scintillating drama.
