Set in the stark landscape of the New York City Subway; A ‘Spress is the story of two unlikely companions struggling to survive, one with a guilt ridden conscience and dark past, the other living in a world that few can comprehend.

The story’s anti-heroes are besieged by seemingly insurmountable obstacles, each of them depending on the other; Jack a recovering addict is running from a tragic mistake leaving him to care for Benji, an autistic man with no understanding of the reality facing them both. But Benji isn’t the only one that needs saving. As Jack fights to outrun his demons, he discovers that Benji’s need for him may only be outweighed by his need for Benji.

Rising Sun, who brought you the acclaimed revivals of “An Adult Evening of Shel Silverstein”, the New York Innovative Theatre Awards nominated “Shape of Things” (2004), and the critically acclaimed hit “Hellcab”, continues its tradition of bringing off beat stories to life, breaks new ground with a brand new play about desperation and survival in the most brutal of worlds.

Can the two survive the rocky road to redemption? Find out in A’Spress……
